Middle Mouse Button

With the middle mouse button (mouse wheel), you can:

  • Pan in all document types

  • Rotate parts and assemblies

  • Zoom in all document types

You can assign functions to a mouse wheel that override the SolidWorks eDrawings settings. It is recommended that any such special settings be disabled or the mouse wheel be turned off when using eDrawings. Specify mouse settings in the Windows Control Panel, or consult the manufacturer regarding driver issues.
