I was using Blender with Maya configuration preset and it worked great for me, but since in 99% of Blender tutorials people are teaching using default configuration preset I've decided to switch on it.

I've bumped into a few annoying things:

• Using Maya preset I could press the F key to focus on the selected item/vertex/face and zoom, pan, rotate around it. In Blender preset it's almost the same with the Del key, but I can zoom only using mouse wheel (which is extremely uncomfortably for me), if I use Ctrl+MMB zoom, the focus resets.
• Sometimes I can't even zoom or pan properly, it starts behaving very slow so I have to refocus with the F on the different objects to reset this bug or whatever this is.

Is there a preset or an addon to make Blender behave like Cinema 4D. In Cinema 4D the focused object/vertex/face is always the one mouse is pointed at.

• There's a such hotkey - Alt+F which lets you zoom to current mouse position and rotate / pan etc. around it. It works in every interaction mode except for the Edit mode. It's possible to use it on the fly without any user prefs changings. – Mr Zak Feb 3 '16 at 20:26
• You second bullet is a common problem present in pretty much any 3D software, it's explained quite nicely in the question and answer. – PGmath Feb 4 '16 at 13:50
