Really basic zoom question ...
show user profile  sweetlemon
Hi guys, I'm using 3DS Max 2009, and usually, when I press "Z" on a viewport, that viewport kind of maximises zoom on the object (say a teapot). However, I think I pressed something, because now everytime I press Z, ALL 4 viewports zoom in on that teapot, which is undersiable - I only need the active viewport to.

I haven't touched any of the user interface shortcuts....

What did I do? Thanks

to avoid that, maximize (alt w) the viewport you want to zoom in on first, or (shift z) the other three viewports afterwards

Hi there ... mm yes that works, but I definately recall I could once just press "Z" on ONE viewport and only zoom in on that viewport, without the other 3 being affected .....

Ah ... I think that did it..... thanks guys ... I'm not sure why my hotkey of Z changed to 'zoom extents all,' instead of zoom extents
