- Drag location
While dragging the mouse there are two standard behaviors when dealing with a virtual globe: The location below mouse pointer will follow the cursor exactly: As a result e.g. the north pole will not stay at the top which can lead to confusion. By default Marble makes sure that north is always up which results in a dragging behavior where the location below the mouse pointer slightly "detaches" from the cursor.
- On Startup
By default Marble will display the home location immediately after the application has started. As an alternative it can also show the last position that was active when the user left the application.
- Animate voyage to the target
When searching for a location Marble can either move instantly to the new location or it can show a travel animation from the previous place to the new place.
