Catia V5 Specify Rotation axis with Magellan (spacemouse)

Catia V5 Specify Rotation axis with Magellan (spacemouse)

Would like to know how to select a rotation axis to graphically rotate part using a magellan-spacemouse in v5.

Can it be programmed to a button on the magellan like in v4.

RE: Catia V5 Specify Rotation axis with Magellan (spacemouse)

it seems the center rotaion unlike v4 is always takes place from center of the screen via the software spaceball. but you can specify
 a new point of rotaion... by hitting
 in quick order...
 1. keyboard "shift"
 2. middle mouse button
 3. left mouse button

 this activates a perspective direction,
 new center rotaion point, and zoom all at  once.

 after you hit all these in sequence
 pull back on your mouse and you'll see a box
 come up similar to 4dnav, move the mouse to
 rotate your perspective ,hit your left m.b.
 down again to adjust the zoom.

 your cursor must be somewhere over the part
 geometry in order for this feature to work.

 good luck!
