Double click sets center of rotation

Carsten Fuchs
Dear group,

still being new to OpenSCAD, using version 2021.02.17 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, I just found by accident a feature that it highly useful to me: a double click in the 3D sets the camera's center of rotation.

I've not found this anywhere mentioned. Should this be added to https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSCAD_User_Manual/The_OpenSCAD_User_Interface#View_navigation ?

Best regards,
Carsten

I should mention that double-clicking does NOT re-center the center of rotation on MacOS.  I think the last version I’ve used where that worked on MacOS was 2015.03.

That would be great. There's now a couple of nice smaller
convenience features that are not well document yet.

For example try placing the cursor in the middle of a
number and use ALT + Cursor UP/DOWN or ALT + mouse wheel
to change it with automatic preview refresh.

ciao,
  Torsten.
