    please, help with a bunch of questions :)

    hello please, i have a few questions :

    - how to reverse scroll direction when zooming ? it's behaving opposite in comparison to autocad ...

    - it's required to close a contour, in order to revolve it; when creating the drawing, if i put a centerline, it won't be displayed properly, because behind it is the line that closed the countour; how to display a centerline on a drawing, of a revolving part ?

    - also, please check attached images / kindly

    All fairly easy to change with your sheet format and part formats. You'll need to make template files. Every time you start a new part or drawing it is pulling up the default SW templates.

    Options (gear symbol at top of screen), System Options, View. The "Reverse mouse wheel Zoom direction" option is at the top.

    Just draw a "construction" line on top of the line that defines your axis. Usually I draw the construction line BEFORE closing the contour for a revolved feature. I just make the "construction" line longer than the line used to close the contour. Additionally, if the construction line is present in your sketch before you press the revolve button, SW will automagically choose the construction line as the axis to revolve about. Saves a button click.
