iPocket Draw + iPad + physical keyboard

Post by Eric Pousse »

Bonjour,

If you have iPocket Draw installed on an iPad with a physical keyboard, you can use it to access to some tools and functions.
Almost all command keys available in RealCADD are now available too in iPocket Draw :
Try esc (or arobase key), s, h , z, a, l, r, o, d, y, q, u, m
And touch down the same key several times, permute the tool.
Space key displays the option of the tool.
Delete key deletes selected objects.

Voilà!

for arrow cursor?
After Space the option menu doesn’t get away

A shortcut for duplicate?

and for Undo/Redo?

For me that works.
You must have selected a tools with options before.

cmd z and cmd shift z for redo

There is also :
Delete key to remove selected object(s)
cmd f for zoom all
cmd c for copy
cmd x for cut
cmd v for paste
cmd a for select all
cmd , for preferences screen
cmd o to open a file
cmd s to save the file without open the screen Files

Voilà.

If I deselect Zoom path width, Backspace doesn’t work more for deleting.
