Anybody else ever wish you could change the angle that the arrow keys rotate a view?
(Development: SolidWorks has had this for years)
Not only because some other software has/had this, additionaly I would like to have Shift+Arrow keys for zooming and say Alt+Arrow keys for panning - would be great.
This is already possible - Ctrl+Arrow keys zooms in or out and Ctrl+Shift+Arrow keys pans the view.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the information Greg. Yes, that works great in the Draft environment too.
However, I noticed with SE ST 6, in the Part environment, Ctrl+Down Arrow key zooms out the view but Ctrl+Up Arrow key does not zoom in. I am not sure if it is happening on just my computer. I will check it on another workstation before confirming. Anyone else seeing this behavior ?
Similarly Ctrl+Shift+Down arrow pans the model down but Ctrl+Shift+Up does not pan it up.
I tried it in ST6 and noticed the different behavior too, Tushar. The reason is that there are keyboard accelerators assigned to those key combinations by default. If you right-click on the ribbon and choose 'Customize the Ribbon', you can get the desired behavior by doing the following when the Customize dialog appears:
There was a PR logged that was fixed in ST7 that removes these default keyboard assignments so that the arrow keys work as described.
Thanks for the workaround Greg. I had to reset all keyboard shortcuts that used any of the arrow keys to get this behavior. So it seems to be an overlap of KB assignments.
I must now set the focus back to the original question from bshand:
