Help--- Can't move!


Occasionally I get into a state in my blends where I cannot move from a particular position. I can rotate (alt-LMB) but I can’t zoom or move through 3D space (ctrl-alt-LMB and shift-alt-LMB). This seems to happen unpredictably… maybe I hit some key or something, but I haven’t figured out how to get out of it. Needless to say, once I get caught in this situation, I can’t continue to work on the blend.

If this is a familiar thing, please let me know how to get back to normal. If not, I will post a blend so somebody can take a look at what I’m talking about.

Thanks very much,


Toggle Numpad-5.


I love this forum. Thanks, that did the trick… Although I’m still wondering if that is a feature or a bug? Normally toggling NUM5 gets me into and out of the perspective view, but I can usually move around okay.

In any case, you saved my day.
