Open a template and wait until the scene is loaded. To look around in the 3D space:

- Hold down the left mouse button and drag to rotate the scene. 

- Hold down the right mouse button and drag to pan the scene. 

- Scroll the mouse to zoom in and out the scene.

- Press the TAB key on your keyboard several times to switch between top, side and perspective views. Right click on the scene and switch the view from the contextual menu.

- Press the key shortcut “a” to fit the selection to your screen. If nothing is selected, this shortcut fits everything on the scene to your screen.
