Zoom While Relocating Gumball Target

In Rhino 6 when I am relocating the gumball I can drag the grip and zoom to the mouse pointer anywhere in the viewport at the same time.

I just started using Rhino 7 and I can only zoom in and out to a set point when relocating the gumball.

Is this normal behavior? how do I change this?

By this, do you mean you are scrolling the mouse wheel, or? Are you in GumballRelocate or Ctrl-dragging the gumball origin?


Ctrl-dragging the gumball while using the mouse wheel to zoom

Hello - And is the problem that zooms only to the viewport center, or? Can you please run SystemInfo in Rhino and copy/paste the reaults here?


Yes only to the viewport centre.

Hello - please disable TwinMotion and Datasmith Exporter plug-ins in Options > Plug-ins page and then exit Rhino and start a new session - is that any different? I’d also update your nVidia driver to the newest available from the nVidia website.


Hi Pascal, I have disabled the plugins and updated my nVidia driver.

No difference.


Hi Dan - hmm - are you using a standard mouse?


Hi Pascal,
I use a Logitech wired gaming mouse. I unplugged it, restarted and tried using a standard HP mouse but no difference.

Thanks, Dan

Hi Dan - OK, I’ll need to consult with a bigger brain than mine.


thanks :+1:

@user958 - there is indeed a change and I was not seeing it because my habit is to let up on the Ctrl key as soon as the gumball starts to move - with Ctrl down, the zoom goes to the current camera target-

RH-62003 Zoom: Scrolling mouse wheel with Ctrl/CMD keeps focus on view center

So the way out is to hold Ctrl just long enough to get the gumball to diplace on its own then let up. Does that do it?


Yes that’s great thankyou Pascal.
I appreciate the help.
