I am using a iMac 27" 64Bit on Intel CPU, Mac OS 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) and Blender 2.5 alpha2 64Bit but it seems that I cannot rotate the 3D view as done under Windows.
Ctrl-Alt-Wheel rotates the 3D window (orbit) along Z-Axis, but Shift+Alt+Wheel does not rotate the 3D view
What I am doing wrong?
By the way I have same problems using Blender 2.49B under Mac OS.
Since Ctrl-Alt-Wheel rotates already along Z-Axis properly, I think my mouse settings under Mac OS preferences are OK.
Holding the mouse wheel activates 3rd mouse button and then you can rotate 3D view while moving the mouse along all axises.
But what I need is using the mouse wheel and a key combination like Shift-Alt-Wheel which should rotate the 3D view only along the axis parallel to monitors x-Axis. Under Windows this worked, but under Mac OS unfortunately not.
Any further ideas?
Yes! I am working on an IMac also with Blender 2.5 and was having lots of trouble trying to get my mouse to orbit around the 3d box. If you check emulate 3 button Mouse
then press alt and left mouse button it works.:eyebrowlift:
