Draw - mouse wheel - rework functionality via modifier keys

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.4.3 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%

Draw - mouse wheel
always zooms, which is not convenient

mouse wheel should not zoom by default,
instead rework zoom functionality to modifier keys

any tool + modifier key + mouse wheel (in drawing area)

current modifiers keys
  • no mod - zoom in/out
  • CTRL - zoom in/out
  • SHIFT - zoom in/out
  • ALT - always zoom-out, no matter which direction mouse wheel is spined

option A
general approach
  • no mod - vertical scroll
  • CTRL - zoom in/out
  • SHIFT - horizontal scroll
  • ALT - same as ctrl or do nothing

option B
like in Photoshop
  • no mod - vertical scroll
  • CTRL - horizontal scroll
  • SHIFT - vertical scroll (3-5lines scroll)
  • ALT - zoom in/out
    so it works as alternative action to the curently selected tool
