enter image description here

The plane that I'm modeling is at the bottom of the screen. I would like it at the top. How do I do this? The scroll wheel makes the view go in circles; I just want that plane part that I'm working on in the middle of my screen.

Hold Shift+MMB MMB and drag. For more info click here


Generally, you can key Shift + MMB MMB and move your mouse around. This is called panning. However, some people do not have a 3 button mouse, and cannot utilize the MMB MMB button. If this is the case for you, go to File > User Preferences > Input tab > Mouse: header and check Emulate 3 Button Mouse. This allows you to use Shift + Alt + LMB LMB to pan.

Note the following:

  • MMB MMB or Alt + LMB LMB to rotate.
  • MW MW to scroll in and out.
