Zoom and Pan in one action via Mouse

Post by TJ65 »

Currently Zoom and Pan are two separate functions which can be done via z and m shortcut and using the mouse. In our application we often want to zoom in on a defect which is not always in the center. In sequence Zoom and Pan has to be used to achieve this. It would be very convenient if this could be done by one action. In for example an application as Irfanview this can be done by holding the CTRL button and use the scroll wheel. A zoom in/out will take place exactly on the location of the mouse pointer just by holding CTRL and use the scroll wheel.

You can use holding CTRL button + mouse wheel in MicroDicom also to zoom in/out an image. Could you try it? Maybe you write me that it doesn't use the mouse cursor to center of Zoom in/out? Could you explain me in more details?

Yes CTRL+Mouse will zoom, but only in the center of the image. If you want to zoom in on the outside of center, you have to pan afterwards. Since a higher zoom level is then used it is often difficult exactly to find th eregion you interested in A 'common' used zoom function will zoom in exactly at the position where mouse pointer is.

Thanks for answer.
We will rework the Ctrl+Mouse wheel and it will use the cursor instead of center of the image.
I will write you here when newer version is ready for download.
