In my installation, the "+" and "-" keys on the number keypad do exactly that.
Yeah, mine too Henry.
But for a right-hander, with the mouse in my right-hand, that is Zooming-in-and-out-by-Cursor constantly
, the +
keys, on the right side of my keyboard are a long and cumbersome way to go. I mean, I actually have to take the time to look, find, re-orient, etc. My left hand and fingers are ready for V,I,N SEKEs, and "E"-Explode and "G"-Group; it seldom travels past the mid-point of the keyboard.
In something like monotonous 2D multi-sheet building construction plans, there is a lot
of tedious stuff to draw. And I like to just zip, zip, zip
-style (a habit from my production-framing days). Having these commands via my Z and Q keys serves me very well.
I just thought it would be very quick and simple for The Developers to add these Commands to the list of available Commands assignable in Customize/Keyboard.
Thanks Henry ~Alvin
p.s.: I thought about hooking up my peripheral, external, USB numerical keypad, put it on my left side, and see if that works; but it's in storage. My hunch is that it's a 50/50 chance that would function as the keyboard-incorporated numerical keypad would.
