I am trying to configure Nanocad so that when I hit the 'm' key (Magnify) I zoom in to a point centred on the cursor, and when I hit the 'd' key (Demagnify) I zoom out. These 'M & D' commands need to over-ride all others.

I have come over from another cad program that uses this system and it works well for me since I prefer to use a Logitech Marble Mouse and can zoom in and out rapidly using my left hand without any need to pan.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

you can assign hotkeys to zoom-in, zoom-out commands, but they will works usual way - zoom to center of your screen, not cursor. If you need to center on the cursor - I think special script/command should be written.

Best regards,
