Reverse Zoom Direction in Inventor

For a lot of people, Inventor may be your first experience with any CAD software.  For me, I practically grew up with AutoCAD, so when I loaded Inventor for the first time and tried to use it I had some difficulty.  The default direction for the Zoom feature using the middle wheel on your mouse works in the opposite direction in Inventor.  I tried to zoom in and it zoomed out and when I tried to zoom out, you guessed it, it zoomed in.  I tried to get used to it the first time, but then I figured there has to be a way to tell this to work in the opposite direction.  This is a short tutorial

Starting new files in Inventor

Getting started with Autodesk Inventor and a quick explanation on the different options in creating a new file.  Once Inventor is open, there are the typical options of starting a new project or opening an existing one.  This is an explanation of the “Create New File” popup after one clicks the “New” button.  There are additional options for templates, once you open the “en-US” folder on the left, but the standard templates will probably cover the majority of your needs.  There are even options of making your own templates as well.
