A couple of questions:
Why is it that when I'm zoomed in to a part or an assembly then try to rotate the model it orbits out of view? How come I have to take extra steps
- zoom out - rotate - zoom back in.
Why is it that when I move the mouse pointer over to the assembly tree window from the modeling window, I have to first click within the tree window before I can scroll the tree with the mouse wheel?
And conversley to the above - Why is it that when I'm done in the tree, and move to the modeling window I have to click somewhere in the window to zoom in or out using the mouse wheel.
And related to the above - Why is it that when applying assembly relations after clicking the first part feature and I require to zoom out, again using the mouse wheel, and or rotate I have to click somewhere neutral (because if I click on a part... well you know)
Why all the extra steps?
Does no one use a mouse wheel and hence there is no user base for the functionality?
Solid works is aware of mouse movements from the assembly tree / feature tree windows over to the model window as the pointer crosses the window boundry. (it is known as the Mouse_Over Event - HELLO!! SOLIDWORKS PEOPLE!!!! PROGRAMMERS!!!!!) so why didn't the programmers act upon the event and automatically switch the active window? Who the hell navigates the tree window from the modeling window?
Is there a setting in options I've overlooked?
