Zoom the camera in/out in the direction of the target.

Rotate the camera around the target and auto-target an object.

Auto-targeting means that the camera will rotate around a shaded object that the WalkAbout view’s crosshairs touch. Auto-targeting will also work in Wireframe viewports if the objects have been previously shaded.

You can use the right-mouse-button drag to rotate the target around the camera, aim at an object, and then press Shift + Ctrl and click and drag the right-mouse-button to rotate the camera around the object.

If you are dexterous, you can press the right-mouse-button and then the left-mouse button and hold them down at the same time to target an object and rotate the camera.

Shift + Right mouse button drag

Pan the camera.
