How to speed up zoom to in issues

The Zoom-to or Quick zoom option helps you to quickly retrieve heavy viewpoints which contain a large number of components or when working with heavy projects. When Quick zoom is enabled, only the camera position will be moved to the issue position when you double click on the issue. The GUIDs of components which are saved in the issue will not be looked up, and other display settings of the viewpoint like colors and annotations will not be taken into account. The currently visible geometry and the way they are displayed will not change. The best way of navigating to a viewpoint, depends on the number of components in the issues, the performance of your computer and the patience you have.



Retrieves all the viewpoint information, like visible elements in the viewpoint and color overrides. This can take longer when you are working with issues where a large number of components are linked to the viewpoint.


When you have viewpoints that take a long time to load because they were created with a very large number of components, you can enable the Quick zoom option. This function will only use the camera position and (if any) place the section planes. It does not take the information of linked components into account, so it allows you to quickly jump to the correct location.


You can enable and disable the Quick zoom option beneath the issues list.
  1. When Quick zoom is activated, the button will appear blue
  2. When Quick zoom is disabled, the button will appear grey
