My autocad crashes sometimes when I try to orbit in a viewport. Any suggestions? AutoCAD 2013. Some days, it's constant. I obviously have stopped testing the situation. he orbit wheel still works but I cannot do the shift, scroll wheel method.
This has been a bug in AutoCAD for as long as I can remember. I couldn't tell you how many error reports I've sent in regarding this issue. Autodesk knows it's a bug, but they either don't know how to fix it, or don't want to expend the resources to fix it.
I feel your pain. I've gotten in the habit of always saving before moving a drawing in a viewport. I very seldom need to spin into 3D mode, but the problem always arises for me by accident when I'm holding shift to drag a drawing orthagonally within a viewport.

I don't have it and I don't know it as a bug.
For me (for a lot of releases and different AutoCAD-based products) <SHIFT>-<WHEEL BUTTON> works and worked as designed.

I've noticed this across multiple computers, operating systems, and versions of AutoCAD.
It's a timing issue with the middle button and the shift key. I figured it out at one point in one of the error logs I sent, but I can't recall the specifics now.
I too have had this crash whilst orbiting using 2012 not previous versions. I have not had much of a play with 2013 as yet. With 2012 in preparation of a project I set up named views of the areas I wanted to view regularly whilst modelling - This worked for me in the work that I am currently doing.
