Hope to add a new feature to VIEW

It is often necessary to view a fixed rectangular area in the view. Can you add a feature?

Use two points to specify a rectangular area and keep it until you reset it. You can use hot keys or icons to quickly and maximize the contents of this area in the window during the drawing process.

This is similar to dragging a range in the View with the mouse, but doing so often requires some manual minor adjustments to do the best.

If you can set the two points yourself, you can avoid most unnecessary manual adjustments.

This should be a request from a mild OCD, thank you!

Suggestions like this are supposed to be posted to the bugtracker as a wishlist item.
Developers do not frequent these support forums in a bid to stumble over feature requests…

Well, there’s “Feature Request Chat” category in this forum for discussion about possible feature requests. But it’s for getting end user opinions because “we” are just end users, not developers here.

Reports go to https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues, not to launchpad anymore!

adjusted category :slightly_smiling_face:

And thanks for the launchpad advice… I wasn’t sure about and still looked alive. Gotta adjust my links, hehe

@Sam.Ma, go to https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues/2271 and add a thumb up. Or add a comment if you have useful new details.
