[FIXED][SUGGESTION][EDITOR]Additional editor Zoom In/Out hotkeys
« on: February 20, 2019, 12:43:33 pm »
I'd suggest adding alternative hotkeys for editor Zoom In/Out, apart from mouse wheel. Maybe regular and alphanumeric +/- ?

Autohotkey script that simulates mouse wheel when you press +/-
Code: [Select]
=::Send {WheelUp}
-::Send {WheelDown}

Always a solution, still it's more of a workaround ;)

You don't need scripts for this.

In the options menu (F3 in the main menu) you can configure the hotkeys and you can assign as many keys as you want for the desired functions.

If needed: A guide how to change hotkeys can also be found in the manual (Point 5.2): https://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?topic=4081.0

"-" currently rewinds back for 1 sec by standard as I recall, so that would be a double assignment.

Not in the editor, which is what this topic is about :P

Well I screwed that up. :XD:

But yes I think +/- isn't covered there, so it could be used as alternatives.

You don't need to wait with workarounds.
Also you can't play the game with gamepad, but with joytokey program you can implement controls yourself.

For the next release, I added the numpad plus/minus (internally referred to as add/substract keys, Windows-keycode 107 and 109) as keys to zoom in/out.
I am hesitant to use the usual character keys for "+" and "-" (internally referred to as OemPlus/OemMinus, Windows-keycode 187 and 189) to zoom in/out, because it is much more likely to hit them accidentally. And I still believe that most people will find the mouse wheel easier to use, so I would like to optimize for this usage.
