First, my background…I used to teach tech support for Apple and was a Systems Engineer for Apple. Got my first Mac in 1985. So I know my way around a Mac…not a newbie.
But…with all that great experience, I can’t for the life of me, figure out what the HECK the shortcuts are for PreForm! This has been a source of frustration for me for over a year. Until today when I’d finally had enough, and decided to turn my frustration into a product feature request.
I want to use key commands for the slicer instead of the mouse, but still have never figured out a key combination that works. Dear Formlabs…WHAT IS THE ARROW WITH THE DOUBLE LINES THROUGH IT?? This is NOT a standard Mac keyboard command that any user understands!
These are the standard Mac keyboard shortcuts:
But wait…there it is! I just found it in an obscure Apple keyboard shortcut support article…it’s PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN.. But that’s a problem! Because the standard keyboard that comes with a Mac is a smaller keyboard that does not have the keyboard shortcuts for Page Up and Page Down.
Okay, so I changed the title of this thread…please make the keyboard shortcut for Go To Next Slice and Go To Previous Slice (and Jump Up/Down 10 Slices) to something that works on the Standard Mac Keyboard. The keyboard above is what comes standard with any Mac unless you upgrade to another keyboard, and it’s also standard to any MacBook Pro.
But WAIT! An update: THE SHORTCUT ON A MACBOOK OR STANDARD MAC KEYBOARD FOR PAGE UP OR DOWN IS HOLDING THE FN KEY PLUS THE UP OR DOWN ARROW. . Formlabs, can you please change this on PreForm, and reflect the fn-↑ keyboard shortcut instead of the arrow with two lines? Thanks!
(And thank you for making a Mac-friendly application! You guys rock!)
