spin / rotate / zoom

Recommended Posts

Howdy foloks, I was having a problem I need help with.

 

I am on x5, using a plain mouse and I need to be able to open the autosnap toolbar and dynamic spin/rotate/zoom from a point.

 

I am doing some engraving and the area I need to rotate around is very small and it is a real pain to chain the letters because they are 3d and have multiple branchpoints and I need to get in close. I havent done this in a while but I could have swore you use to be able to snap to a point and rotate/spin on that point.

 

When I add buttons to the toolbar they dont seem to work while I am in the toolpath menue.

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks...

Hi Murlin.

Would the "Ignore depths in 3D mode" chaining option do what you want?

 

No sire I need to be able to rotate on a dime. The chain segments are so small between branch

points I an having to zooms in extremely close.

what about right click dynamic rotate, it asks for a specific point about which to rotate

Dynamic rotate is your friend for this unless you had a space unit.
