FRED Movement controls
Hello everyone,,

After playing Black and White 2 for a while last night and then hoping back into FRED, I began to wonder if it would be possible to have FRED respond in a similar way:

Right Mouse button + mouse movement = drag the view around
Middle button + movement = rotate
scroll = zoomreverse image search email checker port checker

It seems so intuitive, whereas FRED's current setup is rather cumbersome!  Any thoughts???

Re: FRED Movement controls
Yes please God. One of the biggest problems I have with FRED is that if you’re working with a smaller-than-fullsize keyboard, without a numpad, you have almost no camera control. Something like this would be incredibly valuable.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

I'm surprised that nobody brought up the no-numpad thing before, even though I never used a keyboard without them.
