Zoom / Move to Parent item



If I’m zoomed into a node, Parent Item does nothing. I wish the Zoom-Out and Parent Item functions were merged so it would be trivial to zip around a document.

@Alan: This should be fixed in the latest versions (please refresh/reload the app to update), could you please confirm when you have time? Thanks in advance!


It works!

So by remapping “Move to Parent Item” to Alt+Up, it all goes smoothly. The only thing odd is that this is nowhere near in the Keymap list to Alt+Down which is “Zoom In”. “Zoom Out” is no longer a command I will be using.


It’s listed with other navigation shortcuts; thought that made more sense.


After some experience, I might wish for a change: when this command zooms out, it would be nice to keep the cursor at the same spot in the document, and activating a second time after zoom-out moves to the top item of the document. I tend to lose where I was at when the context switches and I simultaneously get moved to the top item of the new context.


Are you experiencing this bug?

You can do a Up/Down to get back to the location as a temporary workaround. We’re looking into this bug.
