Hi everybody, any suggestion for zooming with mouse scroll instad of using + and - zoom icons?

There are many ways to zoom with CATIA V5. A very easy and common method is to position the cursor in the center of the window, hold down the middle mouse button (or scroll wheel) and tap on the right (or left) mouse button, now drag the cursor up or down while still holding the middle button depressed.

Here's a good video on navigating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI44TfswWFg&fmt=18
