2017-10-23 (M) Vector Editing Keyboard OpenVectorKB UPGRADED

More and more uses for the OpenVectorKB have been found and programmed. It seemed like a neat idea for help while programming in OpenSCAD. Then, it seemed logical to program it to act like a mouse. While it I was at it, why not arrow keys (the most all-around helpful). Recently, I wanted to add compatibility to Audacity.

The top left knob still controls magnitude and precision. The top knob on the right adjusts zoom, which works in many programs which use ctrl+scroll to zoom.  The middle knob will use the mouse pointer to drag a portion of audio using the time shift tool. It presses F5 each time, so beware when using this in other programs. Finally, the bottom right knob, acts as an undo/redo knob, just like the pointer mode. This was useful enough to put in two modes.

Display LEDs were programmed to use the color orange to indicate the magnitude of mouse movements when performing time shift commands.
