Hey guys! :)

Just joined this forum and started using the trial of Photo.
I am coming (what a surprise) from Photoshop and really miss a option in Photo to configure which button has to be pressed for zooming in with the scroll wheel.

I am really used to using the "ALT" button (Im on Windows btw) in pair with the scroll wheel.
The standard seems to be a combination of "CTRL + Scroll".

Other than that I am really impressed with Photo.
My not-so-powerful notebook flies through the program; this wouldn´t be possible with Photoshop.
(My gaming PC on the other hand just doesn´t care if its open and running  :lol:  )

 

Awesome work!

When there is money to spare I will buy this awesome piece of software  B)

If you go Edit > Preferences > Tools and untick "Use mouse wheel to scroll" then it zooms if you press Alt and use the scroll wheel (as you prefer)  or Ctrl and use the scroll wheel.

 

It's nice to have a choice  :)

 

Shift plus scroll wheel will pan left to right.

 

 

Just with the mouse

 

You can press the scroll wheel down and turn it to scroll.

 

Press the scroll wheel down and you can drag the document up/down or left/right

 

That's a lot of useful functions with just the mouse.

 

Edit. Now that's funny, when I first tried that it worked with Alt and scroll wheel plus Ctrl and scroll wheel. I just tried it again and it only worked with control plus scroll  :huh:

 

Edit again. Ah ha, it zooms with the right hand "Alt GR" held down but not the land hand "Alt". How strange.

I have posted it in "bugs", so hopefully it will work in a future release.

Probably a Serif cat walking across the keyboard while coding ..............

Not really so strange! AltGr is the same as Ctrl+Alt. :)

 

But ... "land hand"? :unsure:

"land hand"  Er, yes, an Olde English term. Oft used by Shakespeare I believe  :wacko:

 

You are indeed right, Ctrl + Alt + the scroll wheel does indeed work on the "land" side. So I guess it's the "Ctrl" bit that is relevant here. Maybe I should retract my bug report.
