Spinner Controls

Post by PJMiller » Sat Dec 08, 2018 3:19 pm

There are various spinner controls in Font Creator (the dialog box controls with a number in a box with up/down arrows at the right hand side).

It would be convenient if one could select a spinner control and then use the mouse wheel to increment/decrement those controls.

Alternatively one could select the control and press a key to use the mouse wheel to increment/decrement those controls, for example SHIFT + mouse wheel or CONTROL + mouse wheel.

I think this would enhance the user interface.

:idea: The Up/Down cursor keys will change the values.

Yes indeed they will but it would be faster/more convenient if one could use the mouse wheel to set the number.

I agree.
It would be best to implement it the way it works in adobe softwares -
where you click on the icon/placeholder of the input, and then drag up or down for increase/decrease in number.
But a wheel could work too

I haven’t used a mouse in years, and my trackball doesn’t have a scroll wheel, so I greatly appreciate being able to drag up/down (or right/left) on a control’s icon or label to increase/decrease the value.
