You can use the keypad keys to navigate around the model or to move a selected display set. Set the speed setting for the model to a proper value on the Motion Settings dialog box. The speed setting determines the base rate of movement (units per move), independent of update speed. Keypad and joystick discrete controls can vary the speed around this setting. The keypad always uses the motion rate set in the Motion > Settings > Rates tab, and not the Auto adjust rate. So if, for example, you type in 1'0.000" ft., that is the movement rate that is used, even if the Auto adjust move rate option is active. For more information on the move rate, see Rates Tab (Motion Settings Dialog Box).
To use the keypad keys to manipulate the position of a display set, select a display set, and then start the motion.
The plus key (+) on the numeric keypad tilts up the view cone or display set. The minus key (-) on the numeric keypad tilts down the view cone.
The Page Up and Page Down keys to the left of the numeric keypad raise or lower the view cone or display set elevation (level) in the model when you are using the View Independent or Plant North directional mode. In View Dependent mode, they pan up or pan down within the current view plane dependent (perpendicular) to the current view direction. In Level View Dependent directional mode, the same pan motion occurs as in View Dependent directional mode but without changing the current elevation (level).
The forward backslash or divide key (/) on the numeric keypad rotates the view cone/Display Set to the left. The asterisk or multiply key (*) on the numeric keypad rotates the view cone or display set to the right. Use SHIFT+/ to rotate a selected display set to the left around the view axis. Use SHIFT+* to rotate a selected display set to the right around its axis.
The Esc key cancels the current screen update. The Insert key increases the movement and rotation rates by the amount specified on the Motion > Settings > Rates tab. The Delete key decreases the movement and rotation rates. The Home key cycles through the four Positioning modes. The End key cycles through the four Directional modes.
Use keys 1 - 9 to move through the model. Press and hold these keys to cause continuous motion. The 0 key toggles the Continuous Motion option. The period key (.) repeats the last direction one step. The 5 key toggles the step direction.
If you press more than one key at a time, the motion directions of each key are averaged. For example, if you press keys 7 and 8 at the same time, the motion direction is forward and a little to the left.
All directions and angles of motion are in relation to the selected positioning and directions modes. For more information, see Control Movement with Positioning Modes and Control Movement with Directional Modes.
As you move through the model using the keypad, the Position Control toolbar and the view cone continually update.
The keypad is reserved for motion and orientation control and sometimes does not let you use the keypad to key in numbers. To avoid any problems, use the number keys at the top row of the keyboard to enter numbers.
To use the numeric keypad for navigation, Num Lock must be on and you do not have a display set selected in the Main view. You can use the keypad for more precise movement and placement of display sets in the Main view. For more information, see Move a Display Set Using the Keypad.
The Left/Right Arrows decrease/increase the View Independent Motion Elevation Angle by the current rotation adjustment rate.
The Up/Down Arrows increase/decrease the View Independent Motion Bearing Angle by the current rotation adjustment rate.
Shift + Ctrl + F4 closes the window.
