Update: January 7, 2019
FreeCAD 0.17

On initial settings, if you release mouse right button in rotating 3D view operation (drag with pressing mouse middle and right button), the displayed object will continue to rotation.

You can stop this rotation by pushing mouse left button. But you may want to disable this auto-rotation function to avoid mishandling. This auto-rotation function can be enabled/disabled by following steps.

  1. Open preferences dialog from [Edit]-[Preferences...] menu.

    Preferences menu
    Preferences menu
  2. Toggle "Enable animation" on "3D View" tab in "Display" panel.

    Preferences dialog
    Preferences dialog
  3. Click OK or Apply to apply the settings.
