Martin Wynne said, in the update log to the latest (2.11b) Templot update:
new keyboard shortcuts:
A problem with the Microsoft Surface tablets is that there is no INSERT
key on the clip-on keyboard. The alternative CTRL+V
shortcut is still working for store and background
as it always has done, but I have got used to having a single key shortcut for this (the other hand being on the mouse).
I have therefore added the `¬
key (NOT sign) as an additional shortcut for store and background
(the top-left key on the keyboard). The previous function on this key (zoom to fit all background templates) is more conveniently on PAGE UP
. (Zoom to fit group templates is on PAGE DOWN
So for store and background
there are now all these options, according to preference:
click top tool-button
click main > store & background
key (top-left key)
Likewise the lack of easy access to the F
function keys on tablet computers and some laptops is a nuisance. Two of which are F2
to hide or show the trackpad info and zoom dialogs:
key also works, but there wasn't an alternative for plain F2
. So I have now added one -- the vertical bar character or pipe |
Because of other things I've just got round to looking at this update, I like the video tutorials.
I think that this next point is something that you don't need worry about Martin, rather be aware of.
What you say about keys is correct for a QWERTY keyboard which I think most Templotters will have, however they are not correct for the AZERTY keyboard that I now have as I bought my new computer here in France. I realise that the selection of new shortcuts is for computers without F keys and the chances of someone having an AZERTY version and using Templot is very low.
I include a picture of my AZERTY keyboard. A lot of use is made of the "Alt Gr" key.
key doesn't exist anywhere on the keyboard, not a problem as I have F keys and the alternatives are available.
Out of interest top left key is ².
The vertical bar character or pipe |
key option works OK as do the others once I've found the correct combination of keys. As I implied earlier this isn't intended as a criticism, more a "should be aware of".
Cheers for now
