How can I rotate the entire 3D model in BImx. I can move it left to right or up or down, but only past a stationary viewpoint. I used to be able to rotate the model on a dime using my mouse in AC 19 but can't seem to get 'er done in 20

thanks..Tom

Pressing the F8 key allows you to rotate the model rather than moving around (through) it.
But rotate the entire model is all you can do - you can't navigate through it until you press F8 again.

Is it possible that you can no longer rotate in Bimx on the Mac? I can go forward back left and right but I can no linger rotate so I just go in a straight line out the model. How do I get the old usability back? Some clients prefer to run this on their computers and not on their phones.

Works OK for me on Mac. Just have to be sure that the menus are not displayed (hit Essc). With menus displayed, the nav keys work, but the mouse is 'locked' to the menus.

Thanks Karl, I hadn't even noticed that the menus were on. I'll have to make a note of it, that would be embarrassing at a meeting.
