I am very new to 3D printing and have been only using Cura 4.11.0 on a Mac running macOS Mojava 10.14.6. for two days.


I would like to enlarge and view the objects, but when I enlarge the screen view to look closer at the object (using the standard two finger scroll on touchpad) I can not then scroll up or down the screen to view the object. The base plate stays at the bottom and disappears off the bottom of the screen and I can only see the top of the the object (unless I have enlarged the screen so much that the object disappears completely off the bottom. (see attached).


Is there a function that will allow this? I can find anything. Most programs have scroll bars an the side and bottom of the screen to allow this, but Cura does not seem too.


I would appreciate any comments or help.

    In Cura "panning" the camera is done by holding the shift key while dragging in the viewport (using the "left mousebutton", or just single finger dragging with the mousepad as if you were moving a model).
