Moving object!

Postby jgu1 » Fri Oct 09, 2015 11:44 am

Hi!
Maybe already possible.

A wish from me. When You have placed a component in Dashboard or system panel it would be nice if it is possible to move the object/component around by help of the arrow key on the keyboard.

Best regard


Jorgen

Hi Jorgen,

It is possible using a component or creating your own macros to detect the keypress and manipulate the panel position variables but not directly using the GUI.

We are thinking of ways to try and make Flowcode easier to use so this to me sounds like a good one.

Could we also have a zoom function, when I'm working without a mouse its tricky. (as I often have to in the field)
If you had focus on the System or Dash Board Panels.. could we use the F2 and F3 keys?

Hello,

Ok I will add this too. One thing you can currently do is highlight the panel and then hold down the control key. This makes a small magnifying glass appear in the top left hand corner. Click and drag up or down on this icon to zoom in and out.

Another handy trick is to hold alt and then click on the component you want to be centred on the panel.
