5. Viewing Window Keyboard Shortcuts

Commands that you can give from within the viewing window are all single keystroke commands, often combined with moving the mouse.

                See also the 'stereo' View Command
>               single frame forward stepping, in time animation mode
<               single frame backward stepping, in time animation mode

Button-N            various translation/rotation/zoom, depending on mode (fly/orbit/rot/tran)

SHIFT + Button-N    modifier to the usual Button-N action, to have more fine control

CTRL + Button-N     modifier to orbit-mode, e.g. to do translations instead of rotations 

        s       playnow
        l       loop (rock)
        f,e     playevery=1
        r,t     playevery=0

Gview.cpp : Fl_Gview::handle()
        cw      reset camera position
        p       identify nearest object under mouse cursor
        P       pick that object as the new origin
        o       ORBIT mode
        f       FLY mode
        r       ROTATE mode
        t       TRANSLATE mode
        O       toggle perspective mode

        ESC     exit

        PrintScreen  Take image snapshot of current view
        <  > Step backwards/forwards in dynamical time
                   (numeric prefix sets time step)
        {  }    Animate backwards/forwards in dynamical time
        ~       Fermionic dynamical-time animation toggle:
                   cycle between stop/forward/stop/backward/...
        z  Z    Halve/double animation speed (dyn units/sec)
                   (numeric prefix sets animation speed)
