2.4.1 Navigating the Graphics View
In this step we will show you the most important skills you need to navigate the Graphics View, namely rotating the view, zooming, panning, and selecting and transforming objects.
To rotate the view, click anywhere in an open area of the graphics view with the left mouse button and hold it down. By dragging the mouse left and right you can rotate the view to the left or to the right. Similarly, by dragging the mouse up and down you rotate the model up and down. Panning works similarly as rotating, except you use the middle mouse button instead of the left. Hold down the middle mouse button and drag the mouse to pan the view. You can zoom in or out by holding down the right mouse button. Drag the mouse up to zoom in and move it down to zoom out. See section 3.1.2↓ for an overview of the different methods of changing the view.
