Viewing-position keys

Home Go to a position from which you can see the main, central areas of the Map or 'Scape.
Shift+Home Go to a position up and to the front, from which you can generally see the whole Map or 'Scape. Space should not be wasted round the edge (within the limits of the window shape).
Alt+Home Go to a position from which you can see the main, central areas of the Map or 'Scape, like Home, but with more emphasis on the Current Topic's children.
Ctrl+Home Go to a position from which you can see the main, central areas of the Map or 'Scape for the last Current Topic that was outside the Topicscape Orphans group or Topicscape Islands.
Shift+End Go to a high position from which you can generally see the whole Map or 'Scape looking straight down - the birds-eye view. Space should not be wasted round the edge (within the limits of the window shape).
End Go to a position from which the Hit and History lists can be seen
Backspace Fly back along the track traversed until reaching a past 'Make Current' or the beginning of the run, then stop. On reaching a past 'Make Current' if you release Backspace and press it again, Topicscape will show the previous Map or 'Scape and continue flying backwards along the track. If you are in a Topic Center, pressing Backspace will take you back to the Map or 'Scape window.
Shift+Backspace Fly forward again along the track just backspaced over.
