    Hi all,

    I've heard that Unity rotates the view around a selected object. However if i press Alt+LMB and move, it always rotates around scene center. I can't make it rotate around a selected object. Very annoying!

    How do i fix that?

    Thank you!

    Best regards,
    Alexander

    Select the object you want to focus on

    Hit F

    Now rotate!

    The last object you select becomes the pivot object :)

    Well, I click, click, click, click my objects and the last for what I see becomes the pivot object.

    You may have 2D mode selected. If so, it won't rotate. The 2D/3D mode selector is at the top of view, near the tab. Press it to set 3D mode, and it should work again...

    If you like to rotate around a pivot point, hold Alt and click and drag.

    that work, but for some reason RMB drag is rotating around some place off in the distance, even with an object selected. how do i set the pivot to the selected object for RMB drag?

    thanks
