Feature Request - Horizontal scroll on the preview panel

I am working on 36 weight font and when I have the need to use the ‘show all instances’ option, however when I try to zoom in to see some particular details I am unable to see what was cropped by zooming in.

I think it would be great to be able so scroll horizontally or drag and drop to do a sort of panning.

Nothing urgent, just an idea!



Does right-clicking and disabling the centering help you?

No, because the showing all instances thing is focused on only one glyph, so it doesn’t really matter where is the center of the scaling. Imagine I want to see closer the Extra Light Condensed that is at the beginning of the string of all instances. If I zoom in I will end up in the Regular normal width, because it will always zoom into the center.

A few images to illustrate this.

I think about it.

Hi Georg, do you think you might implement horizontal scrolling ? I would reeeaallly like that :slight_smile:

It’s on the list.


Maybe for Xmas :slight_smile: :slight_smile: ? Hahaha

Or maybe for Christmas 2022 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The preview can be dragged horizontally. Or do you expect something else?

Two-finger horizontal scrolling would be so much better.

true. I’ll have a look.

edit: done
