Using the zoom commands

Using the zoom commands screenshot


This applet is just a placeholder to demonstrate the zoom command of the Hades editor and viewer. Most of the commands are accessible via the view menu in the editor menu bar or the zoom sub-menu in the editor or viewer popup menu. A few important commands can also be activated via keyboard shortcuts.

The following list explains the most important commands:

Most of the zoom commands can also be executed directly via the following bindkeys or shortcut keys. Naturally, the editor must have the keyboard focus for this to work. Use a single left-button mouse click on an empty place in the schematics editor to transfer the keyboard focus to the Hades editor. If the editor still does not react to shortcut keys, check the status panel or the message console for possible error messages - the editor might be expecting some user input to complete an on-going operation. Finally, note that the bindkeys are compiled into the Hades software, and cannot be re-configured:
