Feature Request - Increments for current layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature Request - Increments for current layer

Before printing I like to go into layer mode and check changes in important areas from one layer to the next. For example when supports meet overhangs. Doing this with the slider is a bit tedious, there can be hundreds of layers and you have to move the mouse pixel-perfect to change it by exactly one layer. Typing the number slows you down even more.

So my request is to add +/- buttons to increment/decrement the current layer.


Here is a quick mockup:



Notice that they should be fixed so that you can leave the mouse pointer in place. You could also make it so that a right-click on plus decrements, even faster workflow.

Also - I want to thank you for providing this amazing software for free.

Good news!  The feature already exists.  Use Ctrl+up arrow and Ctrl+down arrow.


It's important that keyboard focus is somewhere in the graphical area and not on a setting.  For example if you click and drag the slider first, then use ctrl+up or ctrl+down
