Moving viewport while creating a spline?!
show user profile  Vinnydude
Most likely a very noob question to ask, but its frustrating the hell out of me!!! lol

I'm creating a spline to lathe and I want to move my viewport while in the middle of the spline, BUT, pressing the middle mouse button to move, also ends the spline!!!

So, how do I move my viewport without it ending my spline?

Thanks in advance :D

Such a frustrating little thing about max...

I remember spending ages swearing at it when trying to copy a line drawing with a spline until I finally found out that 'i' pans the screen :)

CLine is pretty cool,

I've been using it for years, still being developed and dev is still taking suggestions :)
