1. Hmnn, very limited, you almost wonder why they wouldn't give it a useful function, especially as its the biggest key on the keyboard,like pan whilst drawing a route for example, which would be very useful.
2. Why oh why not? Although I have now discovered the 'add waypoint after function, which does allow you to extend a route if you accidentally double click, or use the udo button in the menu bar (see 5) Yes, would be nice to switch off the clutter.
3. THANK YOU! thing is, I hold my mouse with my right hand, am used to using loads of graphics programs which all use modifier keys such as alt, cmd, space bar etc plus the mouse to pan and zoom etc. Also, search for 'pan' in the memorymap 'help' and you get :
To move (or pan) your view of the map, simply click anywhere on the map and drag it with the mouse.
There are multiple options for zooming in and out:
If you have a mouse with a wheel, roll the wheel away from you to zoom in (show more detail) or towards you to zoom out.
If your mouse doesn't have a wheel, click the right mouse button. A pop-up menu opens with commands to zoom in and out.
On the keyboard, press the + key to zoom in and the - key to zoom out. Pressing = also zooms in, so you don't need to hold down the shift key to enter +.
There are also zoom-in and zoom-out buttons on the toolbar.
Each time you zoom, the focal point (the point that doesn’t move on the screen) is the cursor position. This allows you to quickly zoom in on any part of the map just by pointing at it and rolling the wheel or clicking the + key.
No mention that the whole pannig method will change when you draw a route, or how to do it.
4. I'm glad you like it, and yes, turning the arrows off sometimes might be useful, but having them just 'fall off' when you change the line style isn't great.
5. THANK YOU AGAIN! Although you have shown me the way, I don't think you realised quite what I was doing, again, given I am right handed, I was using the mouse to click on the undo icon / back arrow in the menu bar, so there is another UI mess up, as soon as you do that it drops the connection / breaks the route....try it, its mad. So, yes, use the back key and it keeps the route as one.
6. Now not quite sure how I did it, but managed to delete a route without deleting any waypoints, which then had to be deleted in the 'eating peas with a coctail stick' type one by one method, with an 'are you sure' dialogue on every one....
Many thanks for your helpful responses. Do you work for MM?
