FS#657 - Auto Zoom applied too often

Auto Zoom should not be applied every time you go back and forth between editing a block and the main drawing.
At least, not by default: it just isn’t practical. QCAD2 didn’t do it...

Actually, I should have called it 'medium severity'...

QCAD 2 used to open the block that is being edited in a separate window. After editing the block, the window was closed. The window with the original drawing was never affected by this. QCAD 3 opens the edited block in the same window as the main drawing. This makes the autozoom necessary when switching between blocks.

Possible solution: store the last known position / zoom for every block and apply it when switching blocks.

A good suggestion, but how do I do that?

This is a suggestion for future development.

If you are interested, this will likely go into scripts/Block/EditBlock/EditBlock.js

The idea is:

// store offset and zoom factor of current view in a map:
// change current block that is being edited:
// restore offset and zoom factor of new block from map or default to auto zoom:


Available keyboard shortcuts
