Zerene Stacker

Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts

Following is a list of keyboard and mouse actions that are specialized to Zerene Stacker's operation.

At all times when images are showing and the cursor is positioned over an image:

Input 1 Input 2 Action
spacebar pressing and holding the spacebar enters XY navigation mode, then:
mouse drag pans the image
mouse wheel zooms the image
”[” and ”]” zoom the image
”{” and ”}” zoom the image (alternates for ”[” and ”]” on some keyboards)
shift key pressing and holding the shift key enters depth navigation mode, then:
mouse drag up/down moves up/down arbitrary amounts within the stack
mouse wheel moves up/down by one frame within the stack
up/down arrow keys move by one frame within the stack

Also:

  • Press-and-drag within the list of input files will move quickly through the list (depth navigation).

While retouching only, and cursor is positioned over an image:

Input 1 Input 2 Action
“s” flashes between master and source (press to show source, release to show master)
mouse wheel changes size of the retouching brush
”[” ”]” changes size of the retouching brush
”{” ”}” changes size of the retouching brush (alternates for ”[” and ”]” on some keyboards)
shift key pressing and holding the shift key enters depth navigation mode, then:
mouse drag up/down moves up/down arbitrary amounts within the stack
mouse wheel moves up/down by one frame within the stack
up/down arrow keys move by one frame within the stack
ctrl-Z undo edit
ctrl-Y redo edit

The shift and “s” keys can be combined, to show source in the master window while also doing depth navigation. For example holding down both shift and “s” while press-and-dragging the mouse up and down will scroll in depth while showing you the currently selected image in the master window.

Note: When depth navigating, be sure to keep the shift key depressed until you have selected the image you want to use for source. Whenever you release the shift key, there will be a significant pause while the program prepares the currently selected image for use in retouching.
