Arrow keys wont move view window

Postby r-frank » Thu Oct 09, 2014 8:48 pm

Hi there.

Using 014.3700 and Windows 7 64 bit for example in Blender Mode (as navigation style) selecting a solid
and then pressing the arrow keys moved the view (pan).

Using 015.4092 or later with Linux Mint 17 (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS based) this is no longer possible
(no reaction after pressing the arrow keys).

Did I miss something ?
Is this intended ?

Thanks for looking into this.

Have a nice time ...

Your quite right, in 3705 Release, the view does move (in CAD nav too) with the arrow keys but not in 4102 dev. I don't remember reading anywhere that this would of been intentional. Looks like this functionality got lost somewhere between here and there. Never use the arrow keys so I hadn't noticed it before.

This happened with the move from SoQt to Quarter. The class SoQtViewer has implemented the arrow keys and a few more but with Quarter we have to reimplement this.

Thanks wmayer. I had my suspicions, but last time I thought a problem was Quarter related I was way off, so I left that part to those more informed. ;)
