COMMAND INTERRUPTIONS WITH ALT + Z

Not applicable

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?

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.

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

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?
