Hi, 

 

Does anyone know how to navigate the Graph window (with all those nodes) using mouse? All I can do is zoom on scroll and Left/right with Command + scroll (i'm on Mac with magic mouse).

 

Is there a hand cursor available to drag position inside this window? I cant find any shortcuts / modifiers to do this.

 

thanks

Alex

Hello @alexdesigner, You can hold the right-click (RMB) and a modifier key to navigate the Graph view. On macOS, the keystrokes are as follows: Alt+RMB: Zoom in/outCmd+RMB: Pan Regarding scrolling, note that you may scroll by a finer amount when using the Alt or Ctrl modifiers instead of Cmd. Best regards.

I am on a PC not Mac so I normally use the middle mouse button to get the hand tool and move the entire graph and I use scroll to zoom.

However, Ctrl+Right mouse button brings up the same hand control. I believe that is Cmd+Right mouse button on the Mac for panning.

Again on Windows, Alt+Right mouse button zooms, and on teh Mac it is listed as the same Alt + Right mouse button
