Posted · Print bed area on screen in 2.6.2

Hello,

I am used to using version 15 where the print area is nicely centered on the screen and I can see my work. But in 2.6.2, everything is at the way bottom of my screen no matter how tall or short I state my print area is. It's really annoying as I find it hard to see what I'm doing unless I rotate to completely vertical above the job. I feel like I'm missing something, any ideas?

Thanks!5a333d4a2384d_ScreenShot2017-07-25at10_05_10AM.thumb.png.41ecf731fabe0e028f6cb80d0a0ae319.png[/media]5a333d4a4b34a_ScreenShot2017-07-25at10_05_53AM.thumb.png.ae899b86af185f066bc64016eec4417f.png

    Press shift and drag to recenter the screen for now. The "Center camera when item is selected" option that has been disabled since Cura 2.5 will return in Cura 2.7.

    In addition to shift right mouse drag, you can also zoom in with the "+" key on the keypad and zoom out with "-" but you have to get keyboard focus on the right control for that. Usually clicking anywhere in the graphical view (for example on the part) before you hit "+" works.
