I want to position the 0 for x and y axes at bottom left of screen. Is there a way to fix it at this position so that when the image is enlarged there no need reposition the the intersection of X and Y axes.
I'm assuming by "the image" you mean the trackpad screen view rather than background picture shapes? (There are several options available for those when scaling (resizing) them and synchronising them with template moves.)
For panning and zooming on the trackpad there are a dozen different options and settings, depending on whether you want to use:
the mouse actions (Templot style)
screen dragging (as on slippy maps)
the mouse wheel
the keyboard arrow keys
click or hold down tool-buttons
or something else?
and I confess I can't remember all of them.
If you want the X-Y axes to stay put (wherever they are) when zooming, you can use this mouse action to zoom:
and then move the mouse from left to right. The word lock
there is confusing, because most functions unlock the screen zoom. (It means only to cancel the free-zooming setting available when using the F4,F5
mouse actions on templates which are on their datum.)
Sorry there isn't a keyboard shortcut for that mouse action, but the accelerator keys work: press and release ALT, then C, P, S, keys in sequence. I will look at providing a faster access in the next program update.
If while using that mouse action you click the figure showing in blue on the mouse action panel for pad width
, you can set the zoom level and the position of the axes on the screen directly. You can also do that by clicking this button:
Another way to keep the axes in position while zooming is to click this option:
and then move the mouse over the 0,0 trackpad grid origin while rolling the mouse wheel.
p.s. Handy tip for screen dragging with the mouse: if you use the middle button (i.e. press down on the wheel) rather than the left button, you can click anywhere on the screen to begin dragging, without accidentally selecting a template.
