Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Panning, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Panning refers to moving your view of the screen…without changing your zoom level.…And just to be clear, we're only moving our view.…None of the objects are changing their position,…just our view of them.…Like Zooming, Panning is an important part…of navigating your drawing.…And, also like Zooming, there are…a few ways of accomplishing it.…Under View, Pan, we find RealTime, Point,…and then directional panning tools:…Left, Right, Up and Down.…RealTime is the most direct way to pan,…as you literally click on your screen…and drag to pan around your drawing.…
Point Panning is similar, but slightly more precise,…as I can actually use Object Snaps, which we'll get into…in a later video, to move and pan my drawing.…The directional Pans merely nudge my drawing…in that specific direction.…Also, like Zooming, you can use the wheel mouse to pan.…Simply click the wheel itself like a button,…and drag your cursor around the screen.…Also, we can use gestures, just like other…applications in Mac OS 10.…
