One thing that cometimes annoyed a bit me is the fact that the standard photoshop controls don't work in the preview window, i.e. space+lmb+drag=pan, CTRL+space+lmb=zoom in, alt+space+lmb=zoom out etc.

I ran into this a few times before I got used to it, so I more than once tried to pan the window or zoom in/out and accidentially set the focus point to where the mouse happened to be over at this time. Its not a big problem, but if you happen to want to change anything about the preview window or its controls, this would be nice Very Happy

cheers,
Christian

Hi Christian;

Thanks for the suggestion. It took me a bit to get used to it as well but at the same time it didn't make sense to specify an interactive focal point with the right mouse button (selections are usually made with the left mouse button).

One idea that just occurred to me is to possibly use the left mouse button for specifying the focal while in focus map mode only. The rest of the time is would work for dragging. I'll have to look into it and see the feasibility.

Good suggestion, thanks for posting it.

-Richard

Richard,

I am not sure if the left and right mouse buttons really should behave differently depending on the selected depth map mode. But we could look into implementing the modifyer keys consistent with PS like the ones Christian mentioned. Definitely worthwhile to consider, thanks Christian!

hm, I'd be happy even with a "set focus point" button which set the mouse to "set focus point" mode for one click and then resets it to zoom/pan mode, as I usually know where I want the focus to be and don't click around in the preview in a clicking frenzy Razz
