Suggested modification to AFCAD2

Recommended Posts

I'm really enjoying this mew version, although I have one small suggestion for a change in the next version.While the mouse-drag option is really handy, it's (IMHO) a bit conter-intuitive. If you press the 'right' arrow, the display moves to the right (ie objects out of view on the right come into view). However, if you drag the mouse to the right, objects out of view on the left come into view (ie the opposite to the cursors!). Would it be possible to make the movement logic the same? Sorry if nobody else thinks the same....M

I think the cursor keys are great the way they are. Remember, when you push the Down arrow that is the way YOU are traveling, after all, it is easier to move you than to move an Airport!

Yes, I agree. But the mouse movement (when you hold down the wheel) moves in the opposite manner- ie when you drag down, the airport moves down, whereas pressing the down arrow moves the airport up. I don't have any particular problem with either logic- it's just the fact that they are opposite that I think is a little wierd.M

Oh, you mean the zoom control with the mouse wheel? This was originally reversed in the first beta, but some people complained that almost all other programs do the opposite. So he changed it. I liked the other way too...Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
