Zoom and pan keystrokes

Peter Phillips


I have been using Vectorworks quite intensively now for about 9 months or so - only in 2D for the moment, and I strongly reiterate the suggestion I made not long after I started, that Photoshop-like zoom and pan override shortcut keys would be very useful. Until A1 size flat screens are available - affordable ones that is, (I live in hope) panning and zooming will be a constant and frequent activity in CAD drawing. The Photoshop tools are a dream to use and I believe the same technique would reduce Vectorworks drawing time by at least 10% if not more, not to mention the frustration of the constant too and fro from the zoom-in, zoom-out and pan tools, and the many times you find you have selected the zoom tool instead of the 2D selection tool. (This latter problem would be reduced incidentally) if the character of the bounding boxes of the zoom and 2D selection tools where different.
