Scaling start page documentation

Postby 2mm » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:51 am

On the start page, ( FreeCAD-0.17.13541.9948ee4.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage ) the scaling icons are disabled, until the earth symbol is clicked.
Can we enable the scaling buttons (the bleue + and - sign ) on the start page?
Can we bind the scaling form webpages/documents to CTRL + and CTRL - buttons?

It actually works, if you create a new document, switch to it then switch back to the start page, the two buttons become enabled.
I think its because the buttons get checked before the page is loaded, but Iḿ not sure what would need to be done here.

About the shortcuts, CTRL + and CTRL - already zoom in/out on the 3D view. Since we can't use the same shortcut twice, I'm not sure how to handle this either...
