Panning Around Using Mouse Look

Some user's have asked me about eyepoint / panning control using the mouse so here's my settings for enabling the standard Mouse Look feature in Prepar3D (similar settings work in FSX and Steam).

First open the Controls dialog via the sim's menu using,

Menu - Options - Controls...

Key Assignments - Mouse Look (All Default except I Delete the Mouse flight control)

  Mouse - control eyepoint location (on/off)    <blank>
  Mouse - control view direction (on/off)        SPACE
  Mouse - control view direction (on/off)        SPACE        On Release
  Mouse - control view direction (on/off)       Shift-O
  Mouse flight control (on/off)                 <blank>

Axis Assignments - Mouse Look (All Default)

  View left/right axis (pan)                   Left/Right
  View up/down axis (pan)                       Up/Down       Reverse

I set the Mouse Yoke Calibration to Simple, Sensitivity 2, Null Zone 2. I don't use the mouse for flight controls so I delete all Axis Assignments for the Mouse Yoke.

Once the above settings have been made I simply press and hold the SPACE key to move (pan) the view around and zoom in/out using the mouse wheel. Release the SPACE key to return to normal operation.

Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Mouse

On my MX Anywhere 2 mouse I have assigned the Front-Side button to the SPACE key and the Rear-Side button to the Shift-O key combination. So when I press and hold the Front-Side button (SPACE) I can use Mouse Look to pan around. Similarly just pressing the Rear-Side button (Shift-O) enables Mouse Look panning mode continuously until either side button or the SPACE key is pressed.

Hope this helps.
