This is not really a important question, but I still wonder why the camera control with the mouse in Gazebo differs from the one in Rviz. I mean, originally Gazebo was once fully integrated in ROS.


  • left click & dragging: rotate camera
  • middle click & dragging: move camera
  • right click & dragging: zoom

Is there a way to edit the (default) camera control in either Rviz or Gazebo in order to get the same behaviour for both programs? It sometimes gets annoying when switching between the two.

So it seems that there is currently no way to change this. Thanks anyway!
