I am working on a design with moving parts that has several scenes (SU8). The series focuses in on a specific area of the model in various stages of parts motion. I want the view to remain stable from scene to scene so the only things changing are the parts that move, not the entire model. After the scenes were established, I decided to correct a few problems that animation revealed. Among these was a decision to group some parts. In order to see the other parts in the group, I have to view "extents." That changes the view, losing the stability of the model in the scene. I am trying to find a way back to the original zoom factor and orientation of the modified scene, but if I just click on the scene, the parts that I grouped remain so, but some of them return to "hidden" status as they were prior to my modification. The blue outline of the group is initially visible, but I can't seem to find a way to edit the group to restore visibility of the hidden components. If I right-click, the group outline disappears leaving the only un-hidden member of the group off screen.
So, is there a way to save a view without creating a scene. Panning does not appear to be a function that can be constrained to an axis or given a dimension (e.g., red axis 3", etc.). I'd like to save a customized view that I could return to, which then allow "updating" of the scene in the animation.
