suggestion: improve zoom with mousewheel
« on: October 19, 2005, 07:44:43 AM »
Hi,

I just wondered: what about supporting "zoom in" with Ctrl-MouseWheelUp and "zoom out" with Ctrl-MouseWheelDown? Several other apps (like the cool http://fileforum.bet...aintNET/1096481993/1) support it too.

Also, what about giving the zoom slider on the right side a different color when it's NOT = 100%?
And maybe move the %-value to the top of that 'column', so it could sit there in a bigger font next to the other %-values. This would also allow to use more space for the central edit window.

mouse wheel zoom is supported!
just make sure you are clicked inside main image window
(maybe i will try to add "hottracking" to it so you dont have to be clicked into the window to use).

different color for when % not 100 i can do that.

i could move it up BUT i think there is some advantage to having it on the right, it gives you a nice big area to click on to quickly adjust zoom, and it helps to bring attention to that zoom area which many people seem to not even notice.

Hmm, you are right... maybe there's a better way to display that slider? or don't use the full height for it so it doesn't look like a part of the window layout?

One must disable "[X] Auto Fit" first.

the right hand slider takes to many place.
I would prefer an little control like the one in the "create an circle/rectangel shape"
and on top of the screen near " [ ] Auto Fit, 50%, 100%, ..."

ah thanks for reminding me stefan!!!
yes you are right - and i remember getting stuck there too - i was thinking to add code so if you scrool zoomwheel it should automatically uncheck that.

mouser did so much nice coding for the site recently, that I felt I had to be more colorful to explain things better:

Stefan was talking about what this man HAS...

lol, ok i see now.
yes a giant cat would create lots of cat hair all over the house.
and giant scratches in the furniture, i think that would be the worst part.

Finden Leute, die Katzen haben, nicht Haare überall auf dem Tisch?
Ich will mir nicht vorstellen was für Haare man von so einer Riesenkatze finden würde.


Well Mouser did ask for a translation  :Thmbsup:

i think i better make sure that my cat does not see this thread on the forum, or it will start to think it is the boss.
what's your confession carol - that you are a coffee addict?

No - that I don't speak German! (I bullied a friend to do the translation - though I did find the umlauts!)
