Stopping that nerving wild rotations

hansrudolfhansrudolf Member Posts: 40 ✭✭
And while I'm in the mood...
Due to (possibly) some wrong mouse clicks my parts often get in a kind of wild rotations all over the screen, when I move the mouse. Up to now I found no easy way to stop that rotation and go back to the view as it was before. What is the correct way to come out of that loop?

Thanks,
Hansrudolf

    On the view cube in the upper right hand corner, you can click any of the faces or corners to restore your view to a more standard state.  You can also hold the "alt" key while rotating to do a "tabletop" or "z-up" rotation, which some people find to be more useful for them.

    It almost sounded like it got stuck in some animation lock. Maybe I read into it too much

    If the issue is that you got into some kind of animation lock by dragging off the window and letting go, you can fix it by just going back into the window and doing another rotation, then letting go. (So for me, with default controls, a quick right click and drag  in the window should fix it)

    Many thanks, did not understand all (...animation lock by dragging off the window and letting go?), but when it happens again I will try the view cube or refreshing the browser.
    Kind regards,
