COMMAND INTERRUPTIONS WITH ALT + Z


I have my middle mouse button setup so that when depressed it activates the Alt +
Z command. The use of the Alt + Z shortcut key interrupts a drawing command because
once in the shortcut, I can't get back to the drawing command without pressing ESC
which kills the drawing command. If I use the menu available view commands, that
doesn't happen except for the Pan command. It seems that no matter what method
I use to get to the Pan command, I have to ESC to get out of it; hence killing the
drawing command.
Certainly this can't be what is intended. What am I missing?

Re: COMMAND INTERRUPTIONS WITH ALT + Z

I must admint that Alt+Z is a new one to me. I suggest you try using your
Right Mouse Button in combination with the Shift, Alt and Ctrl keys. Each
one does a different function and a couple combinations take care of
everything else. For example Shift+Ctrl with the right mouse buttom pans.
Once you teach yourself to use these keys you won't turn back.

Re: COMMAND INTERRUPTIONS WITH ALT + Z


Alt+Z is the SE shortcut key for the Zoom Tool. In Tools/Options/View you are given
choices as to what the mouse key postions will do to the view. I experimented with
the keys you mentioned and found how they work. I'll replace using these instead
of the Options/View alternatives.
However, might consider fixing this for next time.
Thanks,
Ron

Re: COMMAND INTERRUPTIONS WITH ALT + Z


David, I've noticed since I've converted to using the keys you mentioned that the
PREVIOUS VIEW doesn't function once the view is changed using these keys. I've
found the combination for In/Out Zooming, Zoom Area, Fit, and Pan but none for PREVIOUS
VIEW. What do you use for PV?
