It actually looks four or five pixels to the left or right of the 1px
line, but you're right it's still difficult. I should make it more like
Pd and have the option to 'jump' to the value you hit, or have anywhere
on the slider itself be sensitive.

They work by pressing down and then moving left or right. I guess I
should make this more intuitive. Do you have any suggestions?
