SteeringWheels, also known as wheels, combine many of the common navigation commands into a single interface. Wheels are specific to the context from which you view a model.
The following are the full and mini wheels available:
Full Navigation Wheel
View Object Wheel
Tour Building Wheel
Mini Full Navigation Wheel
Mini View Object Wheel
Mini Tour Building Wheel
Display and Use Wheels
The primary mode of interaction is to press and drag a wedge of a wheel. After a wheel displays, click and hold on a wedge to activate the navigation command. Drag to reorient the current view. To return to the wheel, release the button.
Appearance of the Wheels
You can control the appearance of the wheels:
Wheel tooltip, command Messages, and command Cursor Text
As you move the cursor over the buttons on a wheel, a tooltip appears below the wheel and identifies the action to perform if you click the wedge or button.
Similar to tooltips, command messages and cursor text display when you use one of the navigation commands from a wheel. Command messages display when a navigation command is active. They provide basic instructions about using the command. Command cursor text displays the name of the active navigation command near the cursor. Disabling command messages and cursor text affects only the messages that display when using the mini wheels or the big Full Navigation wheel.
