    Hi Kitmonisit,

    Are you referring to bindkeys (middle mouse) to pan the view?

    Yes, I'm referring to bindkeys. I can't seem to find any menu item that brings up a preferences window. I think I'll have to set it up via text-based configuration file. How do I do it?

    Options->BindKeys. That said, you'd probably have to write a function to respond properly to clicking and dragging with the middle mouse key. In IC61X you can use shift or ctrl with the mouse wheel to pan left or right or up or down in response to the mouse wheel movements...

    Andrew.

    How about this:

    hiSetBindKey("Schematics" "<DrawThru2>" "let((WIN mySnap) WIN=hiGetCurrentWindow() mySnap=WIN~>segSnapMode WIN~>segSnapMode=\"anyAngle\" hiVectorPan() WIN~>segSnapMode=mySnap)")

    It makes sure your segSnapMode is anyAngle and then uses hiVectorPan().

    Where do I write that code? And how do I refer to that in the BindKeys setup window?

    I loved the fact that  you replied a year and 2 months after you were given a solution!

    Anyway, put the code that Derek showed into your .cdsinit file. If you do that, there's no need to enter it in the bindkey UI because it will have been defined from SKILL.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
