Femap in Windows 10

Femap in Windows 10

Femap in Windows 10

Hi all

I have a question regarding using Femap in Windows 10, it is something that bugs me mad smile.

Say that you have a model open and you use the Modify-Edit-Node command or basically any command that opens a dialog box "Entity Selection".
In Win 7, when I press the middle button on the mouse (The wheel) and move the mouse the model rotates on the screen. And when I roll the wheel I zoom in the model. Femap has worked like that for, I don't know how long. But, in Windows 10, when I roll the mouse nothing happens.

I can zoom in the model with the dialog box open by pressing "shift" and then moving the mouse but I like the wheel.

Has anybody a similar experience? So far I only have Win 10 on my home computer but is there some setting in Femap or could there be a driver update or ......?

Any help would be appreciated.


RE: Femap in Windows 10


Yes, that did the trick. I wonder if it has any other (negative) effects. But I will find out with time.

Thanks for your help.
