Zoom Selection (frame selected)

(Leandro Oliveira) #1

Hi guys, First of all, I´m loving studing Blender! Great and powerfull tool! I´s using Blender 2.5 on Windows 7 64bit with the Maya preset. My question is: in Maya and Softimage, if I select one or more objects and hit F, all the selected objects are framed in viewport and the center of the camera orbit is positioned, automatically, in the center of this selection. It´s very usefull in a scene with several objects and for visualize the objects when I rotate de camera. How can I make this in Blender? Thanks,

The period key on the numpad

Unfortunately I don’t have a Numpad on my MacBook and the newer models don’t have Numpad emulation built into the hardware. I tried Blender’s Emulate Numpad and the regular period key, but that did not work.

View / View Selected from the 3dview header menu
In the File / User Preferences / Input tab just change the hotkey (under the 3D View / 3D View (Gobal) / View Selected entry) The Ctrl+U to save as default
