Is there any way to change the orbit out of the middle mouse button, because my mouse has the wheel there and no button. However to wheel acts like a button but its hard to press. thanks

Thanx for sharing, But it is not complete. If you change your units for example to centimetres, scale will change. And strange things start to happening with zoom, viewport clipping, zoom increments, grid and so on. To cover a workaround to this will be great.

I found this very instructional and useful but a bit baffeling because I am using 3DS Max 2012. Luckily my Reseller put me in touch with Joy Voltenberg, a Multimedia Consultant who has guided me through the changes and allowed me to work through the tutorials. I appreciate her and these tutorials very much. Thanks, Randy Van Nostrand
