Aid to Navigation
« on: December 06, 2015, 11:36:16 am »

I'd like to suggest the following aids to navigation:

1. When the mouse wheel zooms in on a panel, it should center the zoom where the mouse pointer is and not, as now, the center of the panel. You could then zoom out, place the mouse cursor where you want to zoom into and zoom in.

This would allow quick and complete navigation with the wheel and avoid selecting and deselecting the viewpoint icon.

2. If in the scene mode one object is selected and then you switch to the object mode, you would then be editing the object selected in the scene.

Thanks again for the great program!

Welcome Dan, nice ideas.  :)
 
 Although i never use the viewpoint mode, your suggestion there would make it far more tempting to use.
 At the moment i think the Arc Rotate mode/view, shortcut 'Alt', is used far more commonly than viewpoint mode. Shortcut 'V'.
 You're 2nd suggestion, re selected object in scene mode, is a really nifty idea, which has interesting potentials.
 Nice one. (2)

dancingshoes: Great idea.  I initially tried to implement it that way but the math wasn't working ... I'll give it another try :)
