to stick with established use in other applications (inkscape,gimp(?)), I suggest using

Zoom out: -
Zoom in: =

I have not found this in the preferences, but a keybinding for that would be good. As far as I can tell, dt is currently only allowing the mouse to be used for zooming

Ticket #8776: alt-1,2,3 shouldn't require clicking

this doesn't add new shortcuts, so it's probably not closing the ticket.

This would be good as a global keybinding.

At least lighttable and darkroom need zooming facilities, not sure about capture/tethering - never done that.

#2 Updated by Richard Wonka about 8 years ago

I wuld also vote for using -/= insted of Alt-2/Alt-3 in lighttable mode. Simpler, easier and people more likelywon't have to rtm to find out how to zoom

  • Affected Version set to git development version
  • Target version set to Candidate for next patch release
  • Priority changed from Low to Medium
  • Category set to Darkroom
  • Subject changed from Add keybinding for zoom in / out to DR Zoom key accels not working properly
  • Tracker changed from Feature to Bug

In dr mode it's the same, <Alt>1,2,3 have different zoom levels. Check preferences views/darkroom.

But having said this: for me those key bindings only work when I click into the picture afterwards - can anyone confirm this behavior? Only hitting <Alt>-1 does nothing, a single left-click into the viewport then zooms in.

  • Priority changed from Medium to Low
  • Status changed from New to Triaged
  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature

Alt-[1|2|3] should work without clicking in darkroom mode now. For the rest (emulating the mouse wheel using the keyboard) I turn this into a feature request. However, I would prefer - and + instead of =. But that's just a detail.
