Summary0000162: Suggestion on view mouse movements

>From some other CADs, specially ECADs, i want to suggest a particular
simple feature to better the moving and/or rotation on the scene.

Mouse wheel is used to zoom.
In an ECAD, that i use (Proteus), i found simpler as in many other
ECADs, to move the view with the same mouse wheel, not-clicking on it.

Zoom-out works as expected.
Zoom-in does not do zoom-in to the center of the widget, but to where
the mouse is placed in.
That means, if the mouse does zoom-in when it is on a corner, it will
zoom-in to THAT corner and not to the center.

It allows me to:

Zoom-out and see the whole panorama.
Point to my object of interest, and zoom-in to it.... Without clicking
on the wheel, which in most mouses is a little hard.

The normal behavior of moving by clicking on the wheel should also
work as normal.

What do you think?

It gets very handy to use the wheel to zoom AND to move.
TagsNo tags attached.
