User Instructions for Controlling 3D Map? Mouse, Touchpad, Keyboard?

One of the challenges is when you share a 3D Map with someone who has never viewed one before, they need to be taught how they can manipulate the map.

Are there any good instructions (or can someone here please write some) on what the user controls are for manipulating the map…

  • using a mouse
  • using most touchpads
  • are there keyboard controls?

I’ve sort of figured it out with my touchpad but I want to make sure I am covering all the possibilities and describing things accurately.

hi @consultant

these vary by mode, which you can change by clicking on the little panel at the bottom of your screen. Click on the cog, and then:

Move camera: 1 finger drag or Left Mouse Button
Pan: 2-finger drag or Right Mouse Button or SHIFT+ Left Mouse Button
Zoom on object: Double-tap or Double-click on object
Zoom out: Double-tap or Double-click on background
Zoom: Pinch in/out or Mousewheel or CTRL + Left Mouse Button

First Person
Move: ↑,←,↓,→ (or W,A,S,D)
Look around: 1-finger drag or Left Mouse Button
Adjust speed: Mousewheel
