Dave, I emailed this to you also...

1. Using the file included in an email, @ 100% Zoom, Select All.
2. Move it with the arrow keys set @ 1 Pixel
3. Note that Not All of the objects move together.
4. Makes fine tuning a bit of a problem

It appears after testing that keyboard item nudge only works with a single selected item.
For now use the keyboard nudge for a single selected item. For a future update this can be expanded to apply to a selected group. Thanks for pointing this out.

Another option for moving a group of items is to type in Left and Top values in the left and top dimension boxes.
This provides exact location values whereas nudge moves in relative values.

Yeah, tried that too. Produces inconsistent and surprising results.

By "that" do you mean you tried Edit > Select All and typed in left or top measurement(s)? We are not aware of any problems there.
Tried testing that on the 2 files you sent could not see any inconsistency. If you get this to happen send us a file, tell us what you selected for you group and what you typed in we will check it out.
