Allow to zoom/navigate in any open plot. The controls should be intuitive:
zoom in: scroll up, or right click if no scrolling weel.
zoom out: scroll down, or Hold left + right click if no working weel.
move: left click and move
the type of interaction with the plot. Possible types are:
Or any short names for these. By default will try to launch a "navigation" session.
plot to navigate, saved using
By default, zm() try to open a mouse interactive session.
If the current device is not interactive, will try to
replot the current plot in a
device. If it fails it will open a console menu based
Zoom handle multiple plots on a device together. You need to navigate the last one plotted and all the other plots will be navigated according to the last one: that can be pretty amazing too if you want to explore multiple layers at the same time.
The recording of the final plot. Can be reploted using
replayPlot(). The most useful may be to get the xlim and
ylim of the final plot. That can be simply got using:
This function relies on pretty low level functions in R that change quite often with new versions. New version of R can break this package but I got used to it and fix it quickly.
In case you close the device before striking q, just hit Ctrl-C on the command line.
