Alt Key on a Mac?


I’m currently using 2.57b , and whenever I hold down the “alt” key to change my view, nothing happens. I’m also on a Mac computer, if that means anything.


Guessing that you need to use the Option key? Mac’s keyboard layout’s a bit different. However, Pressing Alt alone wouldn’t change the view (I think).

The key is labelled “Alt-Option”. The Alt key used to work in the previous version of Blender, and now its not.

If you mean in combination with the LMB in the 3d view you need to select ‘Emulate 3 Button Mouse’ in the File / user preferences / Input panel.
