Mouse wheel zoom and сustom grid

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I would like to know from the author. Does the author plan to implement a custom grid?
+ It would be nice to add the ability to scale the image through the mouse wheel in the settings.

Hold the Ctrl key while scrolling with the mouse wheel in order to change your zoom level.

This makes it difficult to navigate the image. When I work with pixels, I often have to scroll and zoom the canvas, it’s convenient to drag with the mouse without using the keyboard. I would like without the ctrl key. Mouse wheel *only*. Now this function scrolls the image up and down - which does not fit with the graphics editor, it is rather for a text editor.

Does also know anything about custom grid implementation? When are you planning to introduce it? And will she be at all? Without a grid, it is inconvenient to draw tilesets.

The behavior you request is already assigned to scrolling. That's logical IMO.

 

You can pan the canvas by using the mouse wheel as a button.

 

Pan while zoomed

Click and drag with Middle Mouse Button or Mouse Wheel

 

See https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/KeyboardMouseCommands.html#4

 

Adding the Ctrl key modifier to the mouse wheel is commonly assigned to zooming/view size. You'll find it in a great many apps (browsers, Office, Google Docs....)

A highly controversial statement. Photoshop sends hi 😃 In graphics programs, there is such specificity - often change the size of the canvas. I do not require changing anything ... just ask to add the ability to remove the modifier for changing the size of the canvas.

No it isnt. I gave several VERY common examples.

 

Get used to using the Ctrl key?

My workspace is arranged so that the keyboard is at a distance of two meters. Therefore, only a mouse is at hand.

But that is not the point. This raises the question of ergonomics. We can scroll the canvas by clicking the middle mouse button. So why duplicate this function with the wheel?

Personally, when working with the program, the mouse wheel becomes a useless device.

Paint. Net is a good program. Many things are awesome. But such minor flaws spoil the impression.

I respectfully beg to differ.  The mouse wheel is invaluable when zoomed in (or out), to be able to increase/ decrease the brush or eraser quickly and efficiently ... saves a whole heap of time using the drop down menu to try and find the size that fits best.

Possible.

Full customization of hot keys. As it is, for example, implemented in Krita.

You must have awfully long arms ...  you said your keyboard was 2 metres away from your mouse 😊

 

The point still stands.  Rick (and all contributors - fixes, plugins etc) is/are never going to please everyone.  It really is impossible. It's a fact of life and of human nature.

There'll always be an Oliver moment - people wanting more. 

 

There's a couple of things I'd like to see added for ease of use ... but it's not my baby and am just happy to go with the flow.

They're your circles if you want to keep going around in them and asking/arguing the same thing,  when 2 very clever people have answered. 

And nope I don't include myself in there.

I can imagine an easy solution:  move your keyboard within reach.

If you're completely happy with Krita, use Krita.

What for? Hotkeys can be assigned to the mouse. So I have the Middle mouse button + left button assigned to the undo. Middle + right is assigned to the context menu. The left + wheel is assigned to reduce-increase the size of the brush. Right + wheel - select the next \ previous tool. ))

Not an option.
I work standing in front of the desk. In this position, the keyboard is extremely uncomfortable.

Incidentally, it is very good for overall health.

I did not say that. I just gave an example of the successful implementation of this feature.

 

You urge me to get used to the CTRL modifier, move the keyboard, and generally move to another program.
You offer to put up with inconvenience or go to hell.  No ... I’m still digging your brains)) If the author has taken it, then let him do it humanly. He has a talent. Only sometimes, instead of the usual right-hand thread, for some reason, he twisted the left ... 🙃

 

Upd: Key Remapper solved the problem. All that remains is a custom grid.

You'll need to use a keyboard to get the most out of Paint.NET.  I'm not changing Paint.NET to accommodate this type of arrangement, especially when you're the only person to ever ask for it.

 

You've got the answers you came here for, and you're being very argumentative, so I'm locking this post.
