Which control do you use?


For 3D plot controls in Modern->Graph->3D Graph, holding Shift and mouse left button then move the mouse up for zoom in and down for zoom out


For 3D plot controls in Classic->Graph, use mouse wheel to zoom.

Yeap, I have discovered it a couple of hours ago, the solution was holding ctrl or shift to move my view throught the space.

Is there a way to change the control gestures? for example change the zoom in/out controls of 3D surface to +/- buttons in the keyboard?

Zoom in/out include a combination of keyboard and mouse gestures to execute. This is hard to simulate in surface pro gestures.
