Temporarily modify tune step?

Has anyone found a way to temporarily modify the tune step?  For example, I find that with a tune step of 500 Hz I can click on a panadaptor signal and almost always be spot on because most folks tend to operate on nice integer frequencies like 14.221, or +/- 500 Hz like 14.221.5.  But occasionally there will be someone operating a few 100 Hz off.  It would be very nice if there were a temporary override of the established tune step, for example, by pressing Ctrl the mouse wheel might advance only 10 Hz.  

I've tried running with the tune step set to 10 Hz and 50 Hz but I always miss the spot on frequency and have to mouse-wheel onto frequency.  The 500 Hz step works much more often.  I'd just like a complete solution.  

I've looked through SmartSDR and FRStacks and not found any way to do this - yet.

    I just ignore yahoos that can't get on 0 or 500.

    Really irritating.

    I just click on the step size in the RX window and change it to 100 and back to 500 when done.
