[X3D-Public] Navigation > TURNTABLE

BS Contact also has such a navigation mode now. (Maybe it's not yet in 
BS Contact Geo or BS Contact Stereo,
but it will be there with the next updates). We called it ROTATE, in 
lack of a better idea, but TURNTABLE seams
a more reasonable name to me.

Like TURNTABLE, our ROTATE mode is also similar to EXAMINE while keeping 
the viewer upright.
We use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. In both modi, EXAMINE and 
ROTATE, we made it so that using
the wheel keeps the point under the cursor to stay there, similar to 
Google Maps. In other words, you are
zooming towards the object you are pointing to.

Pressing Ctrl while doing a drag temporarily turns both modi into a 
slide operation, where one can grab the
object and move it sidewards, for example to correct if it's off-center.

Now my question is, should we rename our mode from ROTATE to TURNTABLE, 
in order to be consistent with
these two implementations?

best regards,
