Rotating around small objects after modelling large one

I am modelling something quite large with small details. I can hide my large objects so that I can model my small once. Once I have pan and rotated around my large object, rotating around the small objects is a real pain - rotating becomes very sensitive. I want to know if there is an option to reset the parameters that affect pan, rotate and move?
It might sound like a dumb question, but I am not sure how to google this.

Hello - try Zoom Target (rmb of the Zoom button in the top toolbar) - that lets you reset the target - but in Perspective, view manipulation in a small bit of a much larger scene may get tricky. I almost always switch to a parallel projection for close-up work.

this will do the trick:

_-ViewportProperties _CameraTarget _Enter _Pause _Enter

(which is the same in the toolbar “set view”)
camera place target

and on pc notice that in - at least version 6 - toolbar, the command starts with an “!”
! _-ViewportProperties _CameraTarget
_Enter _Pause _Enter
remove the ! to make it nestable - so you can call it inside another command / dialogue.
hope that helps - best -tom
