Non-standard Graphics Interface Gets Me Everytime!

#1 Post by ReverseEMF » 10 May 2019, 17:10

I bounce back and forth between Illustrator and DipTrace, and each time I do, I have to relearn my power-user moves. Very frustrating. For instance, in Dip Trace, to Zoom In, it's the Mouse Wheel. For Illustrator it's Alt-MouseWheel. Grab and Move, in Dip Trace, is Hold-Right-Mouse-Button and Drag. In Illustrator it SpaceBar+Drag-with-Right-Mouse-Button-down!. And to switch out of trace drawing mode it's Right-Click. Whereas, in Illustrator, the closest analog is hitting the "V" key.

After an Illustrator session, I'm a Dip Trace menace, and weird stuff happens in Illustrator when I go all Dip Trace power user!

So -- the feature I would like to see added to Dip Trace, is the ability to re-map keyboard short-cuts. Or, for Dip Trace to come into compliance with the Illustrator de facto standard.
If left to evolution, would this PCB ever design itself, and what would the lead time be on that?

From the top menu choose:

Tools > HotKey Settings

You can remap most (but not all) keyboard shortcuts in DipTrace V3.
I also sat between Elvis & Bigfoot on the UFO.

Awesome. I took a cursory look, and one thing that seems to be missing is the ability to save my edits as a custom configuration. That would be of value when it comes time to build a new computer. That way, I could just load my custom configuration, and not have to redo the custom settings.

Another nice feature would be the ability to print out the settings -- i.e. to make a physical [hardcopy] "cheat sheet".
