I started learning blender 2 days ago, but I'm still stuck in simple problem. I can't change the view using shift + right/left mouse button. The only thing I managed to do is zooming in/out. This's a screenshot from my window http://i.imgur.com/yOPJZtR.png

    $\begingroup$ I recommend taking a beginner's tutorial on navigation in Blender. I just looked at this one, and it covers the basics fairly well. youtube.com/watch?v=zHdTUJBs7so. Good luck, and have fun learning. :) $\endgroup$ – Duane Dibbley Sep 9 '16 at 8:01
  • $\begingroup$ @DuaneDibbley It's not learning issue, I know how to navigate but it's not working for some reason $\endgroup$ – Dot Freelancer Sep 9 '16 at 10:51
  • $\begingroup$ Then someone has given you some wrong info. I don't know what Shift+LMB is meant to do, because I've never tried using it, but Shift+RMB is used to select multiple objects in object mode or multiple vertices/edges/faces in edit mode. $\endgroup$ – Duane Dibbley Sep 9 '16 at 11:08

Did you try to enable "emulate 3 button mouse" in preferences?

windows could map your middle wheel/button to other functions (eg: double click), and it can break blender functions.

I had similar issues, and I started using a small utility called X-mouse, which can change mouse setting "per application"

And it changed my life... :D

I believe it's Shift + MMB to click and pan the view.

MMB only to rotate the view around, Shift + MouseWheel Up / Down to pan the view up and down and Ctrl + MouseWheel Up / Down to pan left to right.

  • $\begingroup$ non of them working $\endgroup$ – Dot Freelancer Sep 9 '16 at 10:49
  • $\begingroup$ @dotfreelancer if really none of them are working check that your mouse is working. These shortcuts are mapped to these actions by default in Blender. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Sep 9 '16 at 16:43
