Meaning of H key changed in sketcher

Postby chrisb » Tue Feb 25, 2020 1:41 pm

Since some published versions the meaning of the H key has changed in sketcher.

H key is and was a well choosen shortcut for adding a horizontl constraint. This still works, but the key got recently an additional meaning: it recenters 3D view in the same way as it does outside Sketcher. It is comfortable for me to add constraints with the keyboard, ut it is disruptive having the sketch jumping around.
Perhaps this propagating of the M key has been introduced together with changes to the ESC key.

I use Gesture Mouse Model.
