keybindings for map zoom
« on: December 11, 2002, 05:05:05 am »

The documentation in the alpha release did not specify how to zoom in and out on the starmap.  Is it implemented?

Use the + and - keys.

Ah, this would be the + and - on the numeric keypad, wouldn't it?  Me and my darn notebook...

That explains it, thanks.

Zoom!?!  I didn't even know you could.   Embarrassed  
Sweet, cant wait to get off work and check that out when I get home.  I was just about to make a thread about how annoying it is to select a star-system that is covered with the text for a race's name, lol.  I bet that fixes my problem. Grin

Apologies for the epic necroposting here, but today I was busting out 0.7.0 on my MacBook and was also having issues zooming on the starmap. I couldn't find info on a fix anywhere. I don't see a way to re-bind this key via flight.cfg.

However, I discovered a workaround by accident:
PageUp and PageDown are also bound to starmap zoom. These keys are present on some external Mac keyboards, and can be simulated on a MacBook by pressing Fn + Up Arrow and Fn + Down Arrow respectively.

Posting here as reference for future players struggling with this, as this thread is high on the google results for this issue, and numpads seem to be becoming increasingly uncommon these days...

Thank you for adding this information.
I would never want a keyboard without a numpad, but saw this trend coming too.
Ah well, they keyboards will get more expensive for me then.
Although PC keyboards are not likely to change that fast,a s many gamers use the extra keypad for movements.
