No grabby hand and feature request


Recommended Posts

Without the auto-tool on, you can't get the little grabby hand to move the block diagram around when the VI is running because (per NI support) they purposely killed the popup menu. Nice. If it's not broke, don't fix it. This has been reported, and the hand is automatically available with the auto-tool on.

The real request here though is simply for horizontal navigation with the roller ball. Currently you can get vertical navigation and fast vertical navigation (hold down Shift), but no horizontal navigation by holding down Control, or Control+Shift, as is used in other programs (Microsoft Visio for example). This feature would make navigation really really easy.

Here's a workaround in the interim: Scrolling horizontally with the mouse wheel works when it's rolled over the horizontal scroll bar.

Just in case you don't know, you can use the scroll wheel to scroll horizontally, but you have to place on the cursor on the horizontal scrollbar for it to work.

Many programs allow free panning (similar to the grabbing hand) if you press the scroll wheel down - you push it down and then moving the mouse scrolls the page you're on in any direction - this could be really useful with a 2D environment like LV.

I don't know how to fix the horz. scroll you want, but here is a tip for those who don't know.

You can turn the auto-tool on by pressing Shift-Tab. It will go to the grabby hand. You can Shift-Tab back out of auto-tool when done.
