Zoom to seleted in map window

  • 1.  Zoom to seleted in map window

    Hello group,

    In older versions of Mapinfo Pro I could select a record in the browser table, then go to the map and select Control+A to have the map zoom to the selected feature. But in v17 that doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know the equivalent action?

    Thanks,
    Stuart

    Hi Stuart,

    It's CTRL + SHIFT + F to find a record in 64-bit.

    Regards

    Quick footnote: if you don't like the new keyboard shortcut these can easily be modified via the "Command Editor" tool which allows you to create new or modify existing keyboard shortcuts. Get to the Command Editor via the "Quick Search" box in the top right hand corner (v17) or Home ribbon >> Tool Extensions. Enjoy!

    Hi Stuart.
    In the 64-bit version you can also use the QuickSearch panel in the top R/H corner.  By typing "Find" in I was presented with possible options and there was matches (Selection->Find->Find) under both Table and Map.  Clicking on one of these highlights the "Find" tool on the Selection tab and when you hover over the "Find" option it provides the short-cut keys for the viewing of the selected record in the map window.  The quick search bar is a great way to locate functions that seem to be hidden away in the 64-bit version.
    You can also type "keyboard" in the interactive Help file and you will find there a list of the Keyboard Shortcuts.

    Hope this helps for any other shortcuts you may have used previously.
