PAN (ctrl + right click ) , popup context menu, how to fix?

Postby nquantum » Fri Sep 07, 2018 2:43 am

When I drag in FreeCAD I often use ctrl + right mouse click, normally I can release right mouse click only hold ctrl key (also shift in rotate view) then release when I go to view I want. Reason I don't like middle mouse click/hold coz button is hard. Also middle+right click is hard to press and reach.

Anywhere in FreeCAD is okay. But on editing sketch is the issue. Ctrl + right click, once release mouse then context menu appear. I have to escape or click at empty area every time I pan view in editing sketch. Quite annoy. No issue with Shift + right click!?

Is this can fix able? Or another workflow suggestion?
Thank.

FreeCAD 0.17
Windows 10

PS. in picture mouse move cursor not show. (I'm try to pan and/or rotate view)
- ctrl and hold + right click and hold >> release right click , context menu show
- ctrl and hold + right click and release , context menu show
- shift and hold + right click and hold >> release right click , no context menu show

Try the different navigation styles and use the one you like best. I like the blender mode.

Perhaps this was forgotten when Ctrl+Middle mouse was implemented in 0.17, because Sketcher behaves a bit different to prevent unintended rotation. It might be worth creating a ticket, so it will not be forgotten, because Abdullah is currently out of reach to take part in this discussion.
