View selector

Hi there!

Is there a setting that disables that Onshape zooms out and rotates when you select a plane view?

I would like it to stay in current position, current zoom, and just rotate to the selected veiw.

    I hadn't realised it did that, but agree it's undesirable.

    It seems the arrows surrounding the view cube just give a rotate without the zoom.

    Often I'll just click on a face and hit the "N" key for view normal to.

    @terje_berset - Hello! :)

    While there isn't a view mode that mimics your desire exactly, you can define any custom view you want and easily return to the same orientation, zoom and location time after time.
