Add 'view selection' and 'view all' shortcuts on mouse.
Keymapp a list of shortcut for almost all editor where:
- mouse button 4 (often used as 'previous' action) is used to focus on selected items. (like numpad period button)
- mouse button 5 (often used as 'next' action) is used to fit all elements in view. (like home button)
It does NOT affect any original shortcut on keyboard.
Usual location of button 4 and 5 on a mouse with basic extra buttons (this may vary a lot on different device)
The location of home key and numpad period is far from both hands and force you to quit temporarily your rest positions, tending to break the fluidity of the workflow.
- Ctrl + mouse button 4 Recenter the view on mouse cursor (like "Alt+F"), can be inverted in addon prefs
- Ctrl + mouse button 5 Toggle isolate selection (numpad slash button), can be inverted in addon prefs
- Shift + mouse button 4 Snap 3D cursor to selection
- Shift + mouse button 5 Snap selection to 3D cursor
- Alt + mouse button 4 Jump to previous keyframe
- Alt + mouse button 5 Jump to next keyframe
In the addons preferences you can choose to:
- Invert the buttons (for all)
- In 3D view : Recenter the view on mouse cursor (like "Alt+F") instead of focus on selection (by default on ctrl+button)
- In 3D view : Toggle isolate (numpad slash button) instead of view all (by default on ctrl+button)
