Hmmm I think act3d should evaluate the U.I. since its possible to ask those questions :-)

You navigate using the mouse and the keys w a s d, like in first person shooters.

No zoom, pan or rotate.

Hi Darrin and jorgensen, please read this post:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/f-a-q/lumion-2-tips-tricks-and-shortcuts

Excerpt:
(W) / (Up arrow): Move camera forward
(S) / (Down arrow): Move camera backward
(A) / (Left arrow): Move camera left
(D) / (Right arrow): Move camera right
(Q): Move camera up
(E): Move camera down
(Shift) + (W/S/A/D/Q/E): Camera moves twice as fast
Right mouse button + Move mouse: Look around
Middle mouse button + Move mouse: Pan
Mousewheel up/down: Move camera forward
(CTRL) + (H): Reset camera pitch to horizontal viewpoint

In Lumion 3, there is also a new Orbit function. Just press the O key (for Orbit) and the right mouse button to orbit around whatever is in the center of the screen.

There are more details here:

Doh :-/ I just learned something. Thanks Morten :-)

Maybe a one page getting started PDF could be an idea, like QuickStart for games :-)
