pretty simple question,
why cant i set a mouse gesture for "previous view" under assembly or drawing?
This command actually has a different name for assemblies and drawings. It is on the View-Modify menu and is called "Undo View Change".
There are a handful of commands that have menu names that vary between doc type. I'll see if we can get this one updated... for now, just use the "Undo View Change" choice.
Good question. Only the developers can answer.
That is a very good question?
I can sort of understand why not for a drawing, but an assembly makes no sense why
you wouldn't be able to program that.
Thanks for the reply. Just curious, what is the thought process in why the commands would
change names between doc types when they are the same command?
In most cases it is not done on purpose. I'd need to dig into the history of this command to figure it out, but its possible that the command didn't exist in assemblies and drawings with the first implementation and when it was eventually added, it was given a different menu title.
Thanks for the reply.
Understandable, also based on what you said it could be a case where the original
programmers that created the first series of commands are no longer working for SW
and a new set comes along and created the other sets of commands not realizing.
I was just curious. One never knows on this end. We are just the end users.
The Mouse Gesture implementation in the Tools-Customize dialog was actually the first time we could easily see all our menu commands side-by-side for each doc type and it showed us a few inconsistencies in menu naming. We fixed the menu names at the time, but this one either slipped through or was done afterward.
Thank's for the reply/answer John
