This is probably trivial to most users, but......
When zooming in and out using the mouse wheel, the increments used in zooming are rather course.
I've tried changing the windows mouse options to no effect within Inventor. I've also looked around the application settings and could not readily find any options which adjusts zooming increment.
Is there even such an option, or am I out of luck on this one?
Thanks in advance for any help offered on this. :-)
Solved! Go to Solution.
What mouse are you using and do you have the drivers for it or using a generic windows driver?
Update the driver and give it a shot..
Never use generic windows driver... They really don't work..

What happen to my Inventor :-(
Did this just start happening or has this been an issue to you for a while?
What version of Inventor are you running?

I do not have that option available to me currently. I'll ask my admin (tomorrow) if he'll load the proper drivers and see where we go from there. But yes, I am using the generic windows drivers. The admin has driver updates and other things locked out.... for whatever reason. (New Job, so still feeling things out here)
In any case...... so are you saying, there is no option within Inventor to adjust zooming increments? It's strictly OS mouse driver settings?
Scott..... it's always been like this. I've only just started this job around a month ago. We're using Inventor 2013. I last used Inventor from 2007-2009, then switched to Catia... now back to Inventor.
Ahhh the life of a contractor! :-)
I don't know a way to change the scroll wheel zoom increment.
BUT, if you need finer control of the zoom, you can hold down F3, then click & drag (left mouse button) up and down. This allows for much smoother zooming.
I understand. In conjunction with what has already been suggested you can always use the navigation wheel as well.
I find it to work pretty good. I toggle it on/off with ctrl-W.
