    Design Entry HDL - Zooming to mouse position Reply

    This is a rather small thing but bugs me a lot--is there a way to make design entry HDL zoom to the current mouse pointer location instead of the last place clicked when doing a ctrl-mouse wheel zoom?  I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

     Sorry I can't answer your question directly as I don't use that feature.

    Are you aware that if you hold down the left button and draw a Z, the screen will zoom to the extents of the Z. Drawing a W will take you back to a full page display.

    There is a table of "strokes" that are available with this tool.  Here's a screen shot:

    Yeah I've tried to use the keystrokes but ultimately find them more cumbersome and slower than zooming with the mouse wheel, or performing same action with a keyboard shortcut or couple of clicks.
