The viewing commands manipulate the view in the graphics window of the active part, assembly, or drawing. You can use viewing commands to manipulate the view while performing other operations.
In a part or assembly, zooms the view so that all of the elements in the model fit in the graphics window. In a drawing, zooms the view so that all of the active sheet fits in the graphics window.
Changes the cursor into cross hairs that are used to define a frame for the view. The elements within the frame zoom to fill the graphics window.
Turns the cursor to an arrow that is used to zoom the view in or out.
Changes the cursor to a four-directional arrow used to drag the view in the graphics window.
In a part or assembly, adds a rotate symbol and cursor to the view. You can rotate the view planar to the screen around the center mark, around a horizontal or vertical axis, or around the X and Y axes. Not used in drawings.
Panning shifts the location of the view without changing the magnification, as though you were moving the image from side to side in front of a camera lens. Use the Pan command on the Standard toolbar to move the view in the graphics window in any direction planar to the screen. You can pan the view while other commands are active.
You can also pan the view using the Intellimouse. Hold down the wheel button, move the mouse in the direction you want to pan, and release the wheel button to stop panning.
Zooming changes the magnification of the view, it does not change the actual size of objects in the image. You can zoom in and out dynamically with cursor movement, or you can magnify a specific area. You can fit the entire image in the window at one time and cycle forward and back through previous zooms. To switch between detail zooms, right-click in the image, and then click Previous.
Use the Zoom command on the standard toolbar to zoom the view in the graphics window in or out to achieve the desired scale. You can zoom the view while other commands are active.
You can also zoom the view using an Intellimouse. Roll the wheel forward to zoom in, and roll back to zoom out. When zooming with the wheel, Autodesk Inventor LT View uses the cursor position as an anchor point for the zoom. As a result, if you don't move the cursor, rolling the mouse forward and then back are not reciprocal actions.
Use the Zoom All command on the Standard toolbar to zoom a part or assembly so that all elements display in the graphics window. You can zoom a drawing so that the active sheet fit within the graphics window.
Use the Zoom Window command on the Standard toolbar to define an area of a part, assembly, or drawing to fill the graphics window.
