Suggested addition for the "Keyboard shortcut WME"

Post by GizmoGuy411
Here is a suggested addition I have for the "Keyboard shortcut WME" page.

Under "Visual & Display", add something like:
[Shift]+click+drag - Zooms focus to rectangle drawn on map.
I'm sure the above could be improved with some more thought.

sketch inspired second try:
[Shift]+click+drag mouse - Creates box that map zooms to.

Perhaps, "Temporarily draws a rectangle on the map. The map display will be zoomed and panned to include the area encompassed by the drawn rectangle."

That's a bit kludgy. How about: "Draws a rectangle. The map zooms to that rectangle."

Just FYI, the Shift+Drag method has been listed under the Interface and Controls page for a few years.

I ended up with a slight modification that I think covers the points above. If anyone disagrees we can review and update as needed.
* [Shift]+click+drag mouse - Draws a temporary rectangle and zooms into that portion of the map

This was already present on the template page.

Clear enough for the upcoming "Waze for Dummies" manual!
