view getting stuck while rotating with mmb


When i try to rotate around an object with middle mouse button it is really hard, because often time i just get stuck and then i have to use the numpad to move around until i get stuck again, while rotating with mmb. At first i thought it is snapping to certain degrees (45, 90, etc), but it occurs completly random and it is driving me nuts.

I also noticed this, it looks like you have to follow a curve with the mouse around the pivot point, rather than dragging left-right or up-down, but I’m not certain if it really works as fine as it should.


Yeah i did not encounter this behaviour way back in Blender 2.49.

Btw i just found out, that you can use Shift/Ctrl+MMB to make it unstuck.
Of course that is not an optimal solution, but it is already way more comfortable then constantly having to reach over to the Numpad.

I don’t recall that ever happening with rotate. Zooming and panning in perspective view gets screwy sometimes and I need to hit Numpad . to reset it, but other than that I’m not sure what issue you guys are having.
