I use a Mac with a Magic Mouse, are the "touch" methods of panning, orbiting and panning just as good as using the 3rd button (or alt 3 Button Emulation Modifiers)? Which is the better to use on Mac?

  • Apologies for the double post... The touch methods I've sussed out are: Panning: Shift + Swipe (any direction) Orbit: Swipe Left / Right (Up / Down and other directions don't work) Zoom: Ctrl + Swipe Up/Down (Left / Right and other directions don't work)

    Personally I don't like the Magic Mouse, but it will work, you may just need to finagle it a bit. I would highly recommend getting a standard 3-button mouse for working in Blender. You won't regret it.
