Arrow key operation for move view or and rotate view
Move view (<h> key) and rotate view (<shift><H> key) should also be operable with the arrow keys when one of these keys is pressed. This is how it works when moving objects.
This would be helpful for people with disabilities and users of graphics tablets, who can then place the keys on the graphics tablet keys.
Elenit, yes, true, the team is aware of the disconnection you describe and it is under review.
To make most of tools work unrotated when the view is, you need to change Constrain Angle value to be a negative of you current view angle (e.g. minus 15 for 15). So far manually, but it’s going to be automated. If you can’t wait, you can use a similar option in DirectPrefs plugin form AstuteGraphics’ plugins pack — it matches the values for you in background.
I have the same request, I believe this is a major issue. Changing my entire working routines, shortcuts and tools -that I've used efficiently for years- in order to accommodate a new feature is not an option.
At the moment the feature works just for viewing. It's not helpful to work with as the controls are practically disconnected from the screen view. When using a rotated view, all the tools (nudge, align, zoom) should work as if the artwork is rotated too. Having the tools behave as if the rotation is 0° is not helpful at all, it's really time consuming, as it feels like a forced brain game every time.
I understand that those tools are tied with the document coordinates which probably can't be rotated, but there needs to be a workaround.
You can move the view with PageUp/PageDown and modifier keys: Ctrl to scroll horizontally instead of vertically, Alt to use smaller steps instead of large. These require two hands (unless you use the right one) though...
As for the view rotation... I’d propose to use Shift (I think it does nothing now but dings). Will it work for you?
Not sure if arrows keys should be modal for that, but that is my preference.
