Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating with the mouse, part of InfraWorks Essential Training.
So, if you've been a little frustrated…watching the previous videos…because you just can't figure out…how I'm navigating all over the place,…it's time to clear that up.…So, I'm in the Chapter 01 Lynda Heights model…and I want to talk about how to navigate with the mouse.…95% of the navigation that you do…is going to be with your mouse,…so it's the one to master.…There are other ways to navigate…but this is the one that's most important.…So, it's pretty simple.…You've got three buttons on your mouse…and they each do something different.…Let's start with the center mouse button.…
I'm going to place my cursor…somewhere in the model and roll that forward.…That's going to zoom me in…and where I place my cursor is actually really important…because that's the spot it'll, kind of, anchor in place.…So, if I zoom back out, I'll show you what I mean.…I'm going to put my cursor up on this mountaintop here…and then roll the wheel forward…and you can see how it holds the position…where my cursor is, and kind of,…pushes everything else off the screen.…
