In Revit 08 , scroll wheel + shift key could be used to orbit around model,

which I found to be a lot more convenient than the Ordit Wheel in 09.

Is there a way to make it work the same in Revit 09?

The Shift, Middle Mouse button still works in 2009.  You can also disable the steering wheel in your settings.

i find that if you switch your mouse driver to the standard Microsoft mouse driver and not the driver that came with your mouse, every thing works filne. i would even un-install the  Logitech Optical Mouse software. you can always re-install it.

I was searching for an answer on the orbit wheel and I saw that you don't use the 2009 Orbit wheel.  I've had the 2009 version installed since in came out about a month or so ago.  I just cannot use the orbit wheel very well.  It feels very clumsy.  I keep thinking I'm going to get the hang of it and figure it out, but I haven't yet.  So far I've been able to get by without using it in front of a client, but that will soon change.  Is there any way to get the 'old' orbit wheel back via some setting?

I don't think so, "What you see is what you get", i use <Shift> and mouse buttons, it's more quick...

Which are we talking about the steering wheel or the orbit?  The orbit has alot of advantages over just "shift-middle mouse" such as orienting 3D floor sections to the exact same position as eachother so you can stack them on top of eachother in a sheet.  There are many other things that make it very useful.  As for the steering wheel I has its advantages as well, but I dont generally use it, I think it saved camera views for me though...I hated them but now with the rewind tool of the steering wheel camera views are better in my eyes.
