Scroll wheel zoom? And where did Check Dependencies go?

Post by RichR » Sat Jun 09, 2018 6:04 pm

1. Feature request: I'd like to Zoom In and Zoom Out using the mouse scroll wheel.

2. On earlier versions, Check Dependencies... was on the File menu. Where did it go?

Help > Diagnostiscs > Check Dependencies

In the front page of the Manual there is a link near the top for "What's new ..."

Which for 2.2.2 takes you to: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/new ... lease.html

Click somewhere.
Control-Mouse Wheel on Windows.
Command-Mouse Wheel on Macs.

Which I would have found if the Manual was searchable. (The index is awfully sparse.)

Thanks!

I didn't search. In this particular case: From a forum window > On-Line Manual

https://manual.audacityteam.org/

Reference (on the left) > Index (scroll down) > Zoom. Scroll down until I hit it.

My favorite problem is the Add-On and Home-Made Filters. Those are abysmally hard to find, and I know they're there.

Tell me about it :roll: It's a long story, is searchable ...

And yes I know the Index is sparse (it was worse a while back, I found a bit of time to improve for that last release 2.2.2) :oops:


If I can't remember where a command is in the menu tree, I go to Edit > Preferences and select the Keyboard tab

Then I use the Search box - in replying to this post of yours I just typed in "dep" and it showed me ;) 8-)
