How do I lock camera to character?

Not playing with the camera locked is driving me crazy. I know you can do it in LOL can you do it in this game. It's my only real gripe with the game

Guys, lay off him, he's new and when you're first starting out I think camera locks can be nice until you get good enough to manipulate the camera freely. That being said, you can press F1 twice and hold it, or set the F1 to be spacebar in the menu. It's not very intuitive, but it's all we have to work with for now. I myself would love a camera snap function (single press spacebar like in LoL) but I'm ok with anything.

if I need the camera to follow me I just double press the character button and hold it. so it follows me. Though keeping on ur character at all time is pretty bad. Too many disadvantages

You can double left-click your hero portrait and the camera will lock onto your hero. If your mouse hits the edge of the window however, you will break the lock.

Why would you even do that

It's like

locking your camera for an RTS game.
