New keyboard shortcuts for AA5 and AA6

Post by Forum_2016 »

Hello, here are some new keyboard shortcuts for AA5 and AA6 :

Open an image then:

CTRL + NUMPAD 5 : selectes a rectangle in the center of the image, then CTRL + NUMPAD_PLUS and MINUS to change the size. May be useful for centering.

CTRL + NUMPAD ENTER : Toggles the grid.

CTRL + SHIFT + F9 : Sets a slightly darker Windows Palette, just like "Night visualization".

Two installations in the same PC

For AA6: If you need to use two installations in the same PC with different configurations, create in the second installation a folder called CONFIG. All configuration files will be stored there.
(if not they will be shared, from the folder: C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Local/Astroart)
