Better Use of Standard Keyboard Shortcuts

There are keyboard shortcuts with fairly universal adoption that LabVIEW does not utilize, but would be helpful. Two of these are:

  1. Shift + scroll wheel: for side scrolling in front panels or block diagrams. (And yes, this is useful in many situations that do not involve over-sized diagrams.)
  2. F2: for editing text content, i.e. of a selected label, comment, etc.

For 1, you can use AutoHotkey with the script posted in this idea.

Since both of the ideas are independently duplicate, I'm going to close this one as duplicate. Note that the shift+scroll is implemented in LabVIEW NXG.
