Orbiting around objects with the MMB MMB, or ⎇ AltLMB LMB is working, and zooming is working with ⇧ Shift+/-,

However panning using ⇧ ShiftLMB LMB or ⎇ AltLMB LMB, and ⇧ ShiftMMB MMB are not functioning anymore. Neither is zooming in/out with scroll wheel. I've reset to factory defaults and restarted Blender several times.

My system:

macOS Sierra
Version 10.12.4

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012)
Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Startup Disk Macintosh HD

  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
  • Intel HD Grphics 4000 1536 MB

Serial Number C02J71T5DKQ4

My storage and files are being accessed from an external drive.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks Leander for edit...have restarted my system and tried a new mouse with exact same problem still occuring. $\endgroup$ – jitterbug Jun 4 '18 at 23:31
  • $\begingroup$ the edited content in my original post should read "however using SHIFT + ALT + LMB does not work for panning... (I think its been interpreted as shift LMB or opt/alt LMB). $\endgroup$ – jitterbug Jun 5 '18 at 9:42
  • $\begingroup$ Why would you even include the serial number of your MacBook, but leave out which version of Blender you're using? $\endgroup$ – dr. Sybren Nov 14 '18 at 11:34
  • $\begingroup$ Just a side note, but I had the same problem. For me it was a tablet update that changed my button allocations. $\endgroup$ – Kanga May 9 at 6:57

after restarting Blender many times over 2 days, and loading factory settings, finally decided to try changing orbit turntable to trackball instead, everything worked normally again once I did that. Changed back to turntable and saved to test it, things still working normally. problem solved.(so far). i`ll update this if status changes again.
