 Mouse Functions

CityGuide DMS has the following mouse functions:

Click on a destination within the overview-window, the map-window will follow towards this destination. By pressing [F7] you may activate the option "jump to target". One click in the overview window now makes the map window "jump" to the chosen destination.


Left-click on the map window and hold down the left mouse button. Move the mouse into the desired direction and watch the map follow your motion (Drag & Drop).


While object symbols are activated, move the mouse cursor over any symbol within your map window. The corresponding object will be highlighted within your object selection. Whenever more information is available for this object, you may access it by clicking on the symbol with your mouse or by pressing the [F5]-key. The information is displayed in a new browser window.


Move the mouse-wheel up or down to alter the zoom factor. The zoom factor is changed in 25%-steps in order to allow a quick and comfortable overview of the map.


In order to identify coordinates for any location on your current source map you will first have to activate the desired coordinate-function. Select the option "Coordinates -> Determine coordinates" from the top menu.
Click afterwards on the desired target point in the map window. A dialogue will come up presenting the chosen coordinates. These can now be copied onto your clipboard and processed in any other application.
