Hey, I have a stupid question about milkshape. I'm just now getting around to testing it out. One issue has been bugging me considerably; the zooming in. Is there a way to zoom in somewhere that isn't in the center axis or at least move so that the axis isn't right in the middle of the window? It'd be a whole lot easier to model if there were. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's not stupid, it's always good to ask questions. ;)
Anyway, you can zoom in on certain areas by using your scroll wheel on your mouse, (i'm presuming you have one?). You can also click down on the mouse wheel and drag it around to move to the area you wish to edit. Do this carefully mind, as it can be quite sensitive.
Another way to do this is to hold down the CTRL key and the left mouse button and move the model by moving your mouse the way you want your model to go. You can use the left mouse button and move the mouse to rotate the model.
Thats it! zooming without mousewheel: hold shift and move your mouse while clicking on the left mouse button.
An other new tool in ms3d 1.8 is rotating around your selection. To do this right click in the 3d view and select "rotate around selection center"
Aha, thank you much. I had been trying to just scroll the mouse wheel, but pushing it worked, as did the others. Thank you much.
