Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating views: Zooming, panning, and rotating, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
Learning how to navigate in the various views in a Revit project is an important skill.…So in this movie, I'd like to show you how to do some basic actions like zoom…and pan, and how to orbit a 3D view.…So I am in a file here called Condo and we are going to use this just as a…backdrop to do some view navigation.…You can really open up any file you like.…Now the easiest way to navigate a view is to use the wheel on your mouse.…So if you don't have wheel mouse, you definitely want to invest in one.…If you roll the wheel it will zoom out, if you roll down and if I roll up it will zoom in.…
Now you'll notice that the zooming is taking place pretty much where my mouse is.…So if I move my mouse say over here on top of the building, and then repeat that…you'll see that the zooming is more centered on that location.…Move it over here in the parking lot, same thing.…So you can control not only the level of zoom, but where the zoom is focused on…simply by the way you move the mouse and roll the wheel.…
