Viewing your drawing - Moving around within a drawing

Using the Pan command

You can move the drawing in any direction using the Pan Realtime tool (

) on the Standard toolbar. Panning shifts or slides the view of the drawing horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The magnification of the drawing remains the same, as does its orientation in space. The only change is the portion of the drawing displayed.

To pan, you can use any of the following methods:

For precise panning, specify two points defining the magnitude and direction of the pan. The first point, or base point, indicates the starting point of the pan. The second point indicates the amount of pan displacement relative to the first point.

To pan in real time, press Ctrl + Shift and use the right mouse button, or use the Real-Time Pan tool (

) on the Standard toolbar.
  • If you have a mouse with a wheel, press and hold the wheel, and then move the mouse.
To pan by specifying two points
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose View > Pan > Point.
  3. Type pan and then press Enter.
  4. Specify the pan base point either by typing the coordinates or by specifying a point in the drawing window.
