Well, for anyone who is using Bimx frequently it may be easy to use the shortcut F or any other shortcuts( no doubt about that ).
For a client, who is using the software for the first time, it's another thing I think. YES, we may say the client has to do the effort of reading the control commands menu. but I still think that some aspects could easily be accessible through the UI as the one mentioned here.
Not to mention that I've seen at least one Virtual explorer with this feature.
I'd like this back, the F key for Fly mode (while in Gamer mode). This seems to have been removed from the latest BIMx viewer. I am now stuck on the ground unless I jump out of Gamer mode and right-click and pan around, ugh. This is on a pc.
VERY annoying and silly when trying to show a client the model and I can't even hardly move around.

You are right, the F button has different function in the BIMx Desktop and Desktop Legacy versions, it is the Fullscreen shortcut now. If you would like to exit the Gamer Mode please use the G key instead, which will bring you to Fly mode immediately. For more information about the shortcuts please visit this site.
Please note that the BIMx Desktop Viewer basic Navigation's default"external" system turns to an "internal" system once the camera is inside the bounding box of the complete 3D model. This means that above any Element in the 3D Model the camera view changes/moves and outside the bounding box the model itself moves (you can rotate the whole model).
I understand that this change might be confusing, thus I added a wish to bring the old function back. Thank you for highlighting this topic.

It seems actuall functionality is now missing. There is no toggle or key command to 'fly'. Users can no longer move vertically in space without directing their view upwards, while the 'V' key allows you to move down.
Can we just have the 'Fly' options back? This all seems needlessly overcomplicated while reducing movement and control. Am I missing a command to move 'up' vertically in space on PC?
