Description

The Focus Selection command will center the current selection in the active viewport. This is useful for times when you may have rotated the camera to a position where you cannot find the object you're working on, or to quickly center a new selection in the viewport.

If you have chosen to use Framed Selection for the View Rotation Center setting in the General Settings window, then a call to Focus Selection will cause the center of the view rotation to be updated to the position of the manipulator on the current selection, where it will stay until a subsequent call to Focus Selection or Frame Selection is made.

Notes

  • If you have chosen Manipulator for the View Rotation Center setting in the General Settings window, calling Focus Selection will have no effect on the center of the view rotation.
  • See also Frame Selection, which will center the selection and also zoom so that the selection fills the viewport.
