You can use these keyboard short cuts in the Lidar Viewer app.
Shortcuts for Navigation
This table shows the keyboard shortcuts for orbital navigation:
|Rotate by Z-axis||Left and right arrows|
|Rotate by X-axis||Up and down arrows|
|Rotate by Y-axis||Q and E|
This table shows the keyboard shortcuts for first-person navigation ( only enabled in perspective projection):
W — Forward
S — Backward
|Move left or right|
A — Left
D — Right
|Move up or down|
R — Up
F — Down
|Look around the scene (Pitch/Yaw rotation of camera)|
Up arrow — Pitch up
Down arrow — Pitch down
Left arrow — Yaw left
Right arrow — Yaw right
|Roll the scene (Roll rotation of camera)|
Q — Clockwise roll
E — Counter-clockwise roll
These shortcuts do not work in the Measurement tab.

Shift + Left or Right — Camera orbits horizontally around the point cloud. (Scene appears to stand still as camera moves externally around it horizontally.)
Shift + Up or Down — Camera orbits vertically around the point cloud. (Scene appears to stand still as camera moves externally around it vertically.)
Zoom in or out
z — Zoom in
x — Zoom out
Look at a view plane
1 — XY
2 — YX
3 — XZ
4 — ZX
5 — YZ
6 — ZY
Camera positioned in the selected plane with a line of sight to the center of the plot.
Switch between rotate and pan Spacebar — Press and hold the spacebar to switch the interaction to pan. Release the spacebar to switch back to rotate. Rotate in X-, Y-, and Z- dimensions T — Adds rotate interaction in the third dimension.
