Zoom out not working when close to object

I have from some time dificulties in zooming out the viewport when I am very close to an object and selected one face. The zoom-out wheel just dosn’t work anymore. I need to deselect the surface to regain the zoom-out function again.

Hello - - the scroll wheel works in the same view if no object is selected and it does not work if an object (or sub-object?) is selected, do I have that right? Is this the case in any view or is it a perspective view thing?


Try holding down the Alt key when that happens. That will push the view target point along with the viewport camera point like it works in parallel projection views.
