Hey, I was wondering if there was a way to disable the relative zooming/panning. I know sometimes it’s helpful, but it really throws me off when I’m working on a layout and the zooming/panning acts different if my cursor happens to be on top of a distant/closer object. My muscle memory gets all jumbled up really easy that way as well since the “amount” of zooming/panning changes constantly.
There isn’t any way to disable it.
So it’s just something you grow used to? Or do you just learn a specific workflow to have that not bother you?
Also, do you know if there any place where I can report this or make some sort of feature request about it?
I think it’s just a feature you learn to use to your advantage.
I don’t see anything to “report”. This isn’t a bug, after all. You can post a feature request here on the forum.
Alright, thanks again. I guess I’m just a bit too used to using other programs, I just started this a few days ago.
Spend some time learning how to use SketchUp the way it is before you start making requests to change it to be like other programs.
Hehe, you are correct. It was a bit late at night and I got a bit frustrated making a staircase that was a bit too close to other geometry. But it is just what you said, I was just trying to make things the way I’ve made things in programs like maya before, but the workflow is very different here - Once I started using some of the native tools it all went better.
But still, I believe that disabling that there is no harm in being able to disable that option somewhere in preferences. Sometimes you just wanna work with zooming/panning that is relative to the project as a whole and not as specific items in it.
