How do you move the 3D aea freely?

Is there a way to freely move the 3D area freely without the num pad. Sometimes the num pad doesn’t quite put things in view for me and I can’t get things positioned so I can see them just the way I want.

Can you essentially grab the “world” and move it as needed?

I believe holding down the middle mouse botton and moving the move is what you want.

Works. Thanks. Gotta stop using my WACOM pen and use that mouse after all.

alt-left-click does the same thing if you don’t want to put down the pen.
