I am on a Mac. My 3D-view (camera) is not panning and zooming correctly anymore.

I know I need to press numpad . (the period key on the numpad). I do not have a number pad.

I know I can get around not having a numpad by remapping the key. However I do not know what the name of the command is that will reset the 3D-view.

I searched for "numpad ." and tried remapping several of the available commands to shift + option + .. But when I select an object and then issue that key combo, my 3D-view does not change.

    $\begingroup$ Try "Frame Selected" in the 3D View (because your problem is in the 3D Viewport, everything else is in other parts of Blender). If that doesn't help, instead of remapping the key try the shortcut Shift+C. $\endgroup$ Aug 16, 2022 at 14:21

The third "Frame select" under 3D View is the one you want to remap. The others might work as well but I did not test them.
