Roll is in and out. Hold down is rotate. On mine.
Thanks David, the scroll wheel works to zoom in and out, but holding the mmb down whilst dragging does nothing.
What David said, also if your mouse is old it won't function properly on the rotate option when pressing down. Seriously why I am considering a 3d mouse.
is this a fresh install-
has the button/mouse worked correctly before
did you import the settings
have you tried >
windows button/program menu
type- regedit and select "Regedit.exe" with rmb
run as admin
In the Registry Editor,
>SolidWorks 2017 (your version installed eg: 2014, 2015 etc)
right click your version eg: SolidWorks 2016
and rename "SolidWorks 2016 old" or "SolidWorks 2016 buggy"
launch SW and you will be like a new user
just for good measure refresh(F5) the regedit window
to see your new folder Solidworks ####(ver)
you can reclaim the old settings-
delete the latest folder-
and rename the "old" folder as your version
my best guess if it was working before
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
It is a fresh install... and Solidworks has never been on this computer before.
I tried Tools>Options>Reset, but nothing changed.
I don't have admin rights to this computer, so I will have to wait for tech to try your workaround.
1- did you swap the mouses(micez, meezes)
do you get the same result on yours and
your colleagues machines
2-try exporting the working settings
from your colleagues station to yours
I was having a similar problem, and I've solved it for me but not sure if it will work for you as you seem to be having a more severe problem.
My middle button was partially working to rotate my models. I could fully rotate left to right and right to left but top to bottom and bottom to top I could only go through 180º.
Like you I could use the arrow keys to rotate without issue.
If you right click anywhere in the main window is the "rotate about scene floor" box checked? If so, deselect it.
Hope this helps...
Make sure your MMB function is set to the same as the function set in the Solidworks keybindings settings. On two occasions I've had my Logitech MMB function mysteriously change in the Setpoint settings t something like "Back" instead of "Click 3" or similar and it caused my rotate to not function in SW.
