Configurable keys, menus, zoom slider, moons

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    First, I *love* the software...good job!

    I do a decent amount of sidewalk astronomy, and I have a tablet PC I take with me on such outings (Compaq TC1000).  I'd love to   use your software to show people where things are, etc, but I'd like to use my computer in "tablet mode" (no keyboard).  Since the stylus only has two mouse buttons, I can't center objects or anything in this mode.

    What I'd like to see would be some way to configure keybindings to actions, plus a sort of menu interface.  (OK, I'm asking for a lot.. :) )  So, I can select items with a left-click, then bring up a menu with a right-click, from which I can center, zoom, etc.  Having an on-screen zoom slider would be nice, as well -- I could just click-n-drag to change zoom level.

    And finally, I don't see any of the moons of the outer planets.  Would be very cool to see those in realtime (or am I missing them?).

    I'm a programmer...perhaps I'll look into some of this, myself.  But don't count on me having the time.. :)

    Thanks again!

    Hi Guys I'm using version 0.12.0 om Windows 764 bit and cannot reassign the keyboard shortcuts. They work for the current session but disappear as soon as I shut down and reopen Stellarium. I've tried saving preferences and editing the shortcuts.json file but it wont stick. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks Tony
