Here is a list of useful, but potentially obscure mouse commands for the Animator program. These may come in handy when producing your artifact.
For the curve names subwindow:
SHIFT + CLICK: Selects consecutive curves for simultaneous display
CTRL + CLICK: Selects arbitrary curves for simultaneous display
For the curve subwindow:
CTRL + LEFT MOUSE: Selects a curve when more than one curve is displayed.
LEFT MOUSE: Adds a control point (click on empty space) or moves an existing control point.
SHIFT + LEFT MOUSE: Removes a control point
ALT + LEFT MOUSE: Selects all control points in a rectangular region. Once multiple points have been selected, they can be moved en masse. This also selects multiple points from different curves if the curves are being displayed simultaneously.
RIGHT MOUSE: Zooms in X and Y dimensions. Move vertically to zoom in the vertical axis, etc.
CTRL + RIGHT MOUSE: Zooms into a rectangular region
SHIFT + RIGHT MOUSE: Pans the viewed region. Move vertically to scroll in the vertical direction, etc.
Also, if you are using the departmental Linux machines,
ALT + LEFT MOUSE is captured by the windowing system so that animator never sees it, which is annoying. To fix this, open up graphwidget.cpp and search for FL_ALT. There should be 3 instances. Replace all 3 instances with one of the following:
ALT. The key you pick will work as a toggle rather than as a hold-and-drag key since they are all members of the lock family. It's kind of ugly, but on the other hand it's a quick and simple and comprehensive fix.
