Viewport rotation mode

Postby BurrMan » Wed Jul 04, 2018 10:21 am

Hi,
Just got V.9 loaded and had a question.
When I first launched it, there was a little 2 choice dialogue asking if I wanted Architectual or mechanical navigation...

I think Archi keeps the xy plane parallel and mechanical allows "sideways rotation" also...

Anyway, it said "don't worry, you can change this in the preferences later".

I chose mechanical a couple times, and it always asked upon restart. I chose Architectual once, and now the dialogue doesn't pop up to ask on startup and I cant find the setting for this rotation mode change.

Anybody know where it is?

You can alter this per camera, but I can't see a way to alter it as a default. If you 'create' a camera and open the camera dialogue box you'll see the AH gimball in the camera object tab.

Thanks pocc,
That's it. Don't even need to create one. The default camera's properties does what I want.

That initial dialogue creation was a mystery though...

But changing the setting on a default camera will hold that choice through to the next session, so issue resolved!

Thanks again.
