Especially useful for 3d renderings, this widget allows the user to intuitively rotate, pan and zoom any axes within a figure using key presses and mouse gestures. Additionally, link several axes to move synchronously, press q to quit the widget, r (or double-click) to reset the current axes and escape to close the figure.
