    Hold down right click, and pan as you like. :)

    The key command is either the command key + clicking the mouse or option key and clicking the mouse. I haven't used an Apple mouse in ages as I usually buy a standard mouse to use.

    If you are using Sims 4 camera the camera is always at a fixed angle, if you are using Sims 3 camera then you can tilt it by holding the control and then using 2 fingers you click and drag to tilt/turn the camera around.

    You can use the keyboard too. Enable Sims 3 camera controls in the game options then hold down CMD and use the up and down arrows.

    Turn on Sims 3 Camera mode in game options, hold the ctrl key and click and drag to tilt and turn the camera around to your liking.

    Is there a fix for the camera angle problems on a desktop Mac? I use the wireless mouse with no wheel or ball. I use the Sims4 camera (quicker zoom and turn), but I can only look down on my building, never straight on. This is not a birds eye view problem, but a camera angle problem. If I want a ground level front facing view (particularly for building), is my only option to use the Sims3 camera? I'm hoping not since I much prefer the quick spin and zoom of the Sims4 camera and having to deal with Tab or Control and the up/down arrows thing in Sims3 camera is nuts.

    It's probably an either or situation. I prefer the Sims 3 camera, but that's because I'm so used to it. I use a Logitech wireless mouse on my desktop as I prefer the scroll wheel and the left and right mouse buttons. You can always buy one to use for the Sims as they aren't normally that expensive.
