> Hi,
> Some people are complaining that Xournal does not intercept Volume
> Up/Down to actually zoom in/out
> a note.
> (I will make it configurable, but I want to discuss this a bit).
> I believe that, by default, those key should be left to where they
> belong, Volume settings.
> Indeed, that's also the design decision take for Ovi Maps [1].
> They already provide huge +/- keys on the screen while Xournal uses
> the keys 'i' and 'o'
> (as in Zoom 'I'n/'O'ut).
> What are your thoughts about this?
> I do know that Photos and Browser use those to zoom in/out, but
> shouldn't those provide
> alternative ways of zoom in/out (like the browser zoom gesture)
> instead of stealing the hardware keys
> from the Volume adjustment ?
> The +/- keys MAINLY set the volume (i.e. Desktop, Media player, Maps,
> Lock screen and so on) and does
> something else in Photos, Browser and few others.
> Wouldn't it make more sense to leave then to the Volume? So that its
> use would be consistent everywhere ?
> I think that someone (may be me.. uhm.. don't remember) raised this
> issue in Maemo < 5 already.
> Anyway.. what do you think?
