Alt+Scroll Wheel To Zoom In/Out Vertically?

Post by iGBk »

Holding down alt + scroll wheel currently doesn't do anything. Holding down ctrl + scroll wheel zooms horizontally, and holding down shift + scroll wheel moves horizontally. I think it would make ergonomic sense to implement this function, as well as saving us two primary keyboard hotkey slots and making the function faster to use.

You can always get a mouse with key command edits. I use a logitech M560 and I have my key commands setup within the logitech editor for cubase.
I can choose whatever I want :0

Thanks, that's a good idea. I wondered if that was possible, may well try that.

There are so many very good Keycommands for zoom! (KeyCommands > Zoom)
I hate 24/7 mouse scrolling. With KC I´m very fast - faster than with mouse.

Good idea :geek: although 'Alt' is already used to change the cursor to Pencil mode.

Developers should change this first: to 'Alt' +* :ugeek:

alt + mouse wheel, has no other function atm, the alt key is used in lots of different combinations for different tools, your suggestion doesn;t make any sense. When is using alt for the pen or cutting tool which requires left clicking, going to interfere with zooming with the mouse wheel?

Oh yes please. Hey Steinberg, you have this feature in Wavelab. Why not Cubase? Cheers

Frustrated after an hours digging around investigating custom key mapping that this isn't achievable.

I really prefer using the scroll wheel versus keys. Coming from 3d modeling software I have grown attached to this.
Alt+Wheel would be perfect.

Not sure if this is the type of scrolling being discussed but when I go to use the mouse on the track's vertical scaling slider on the right side of the project window, I always click in the slider's range instead of the increment +-/ thing at the end of the slider, and skips to MAX value (too far), and then I have to start clicking around in the range again to find where I need it. Operator error though!

Scroll would be very fast to get there.

in the logitech software you have to add cubase and then setup custom commands. I have used it for years and it works great!
