There's a navigation option in 3Dcoat where you can just hold the Shift button while rotating your view and it will snap to nearest elevation (front back side etc).

This renders the need for switching views null. I know there is something similar in Blender but would love to remap what ever that option is to Shift in the keymap menu.

Any ideas folks?


You can hold down Alt while dragging your view angle around. This will snap the angle to the default numpad angles.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the reply. Yes thats what I am currently using which is not ideal as I want to do my keys layout slightly differently. Ideally I would know the name of this function so I can find it in the key custom menu in prefs but cant for the life of me find it :S $\endgroup$ – McCabe33 Nov 28 '19 at 12:27
