Transpose group selections and shift in a direction incrementally?

I would like to be able to make any selection of glyphs from the “font” screen and apply any and all transformations upon them in unison. I know I can scale this way, and perhaps rotate or flip but I can’t shift them all in a desired direction globally. There should be a “Move” function on the “Transformations bar” that would allow me to enter a value of units to shift as well as a direction. This comes in handy when doing ordinals and superior figures, etc.

You can do that with the transform filter.
