The navigation modes are hardcoded in C++ files that must be compiled. There is no interactive editing at the moment. Would it be possible to dynamically change? Maybe, maybe not. The 3D view
is a complex thing that handles selection, rotation, and things like that. I don't know if it can be designed in such a way that the navigation styles can be changed at runtime, or if there is a technical reason that prevents that.
Actually, @vocx wrote that not me...
A keyboard shortcut, or macro, or something?
I'm actually a bit surprised there is nothing like this available. I poked around a bit for a macro or even keyboard shortcut to the navigation style dialog...
Inventor navigation suits me just fine when not in the sketcher. Once in the sketcher, then CAD mode is much the most convenient. I keep having to close a sketch, and go across to the model tab, and change to CAD, and then return to the sketch. Editing sketches in 3D is, as yet, a bit advanced for me.
Best of all would be a way to configure a "default" navigation mode per workbench, with ability to change to any other from within the workbench.
I see this as a way to much confusion for me...but, I tend to like consistent behavior, i.e. I don't want to have to think which button to use between workbenches. When I use Blender, my mind knows to use Blender navigation, in FreeCAD, FreeCAD navigation, in AutoCAD, or whatever use that style.
It's basically muscle memory for the currently active tool. But, that's me, I don't even bother changing desktop backgrounds etc. ...mostly because, I get really annoyed because when an update comes along I have to remember (or it's been so long that I have to research) how I changed things. I have better ways to spend my time.
