I don't like the idea to enlarge the ideas even more, but what from what I
read from this thread I have the impression that a lot of you are not aware
capabilities of the GTK+ spinbutton, so here comes a short tutorial...
Press left mouse button on the arrow to change by a small amount
(this is usally 1 or 0.1)
Hold left button on the arrow to increase the speed the spinner is updating.
Press middle mouse button on the arrow to change by page_size
(this is usually 10 or 1)
Press right mouse button to go the max/min respectively
Use the cursor up|down keys to go up or down by the small amount that matches the left
mouse button click.
Use the PageUp / PageDown keys to go up or down by the page_size that
matches the middle mouse button click.
Use Ctrl with the PageUp / PageDown keys to go the max/min respectively
