1.Viewer Menu Items
1.1 Important Menus
1.1.1 Advanced Menu
The "Advanced" menu is probably one of the most useful menus you can find. There are all kinds of interesting settings you can play with. But be warned. These may be confusing at first! If you don't see the "Advanced Menu", don't panic. There is a short cut that will toggle it. Just hit the Ctrl+Alt+d keys and presto!
What you want to do now is set "Camera constraints" to off. This will allow you to zoom out further. And zoom in closer. Both will be invaluable in the future.
1.1.2 Build Menu
The "Build" menu will become your most used menu if you want to look good, and not like some newbie with various items slapped on without any further thought. Not that I have anything against newbies. Because I don't. I used to be one when I was a day old. :p
