scroll wheel mouse

Recommended Posts

I am just wondering if I buy a 2-button, scroll wheel mouse for my mac, will I be able to use the wheel to zoom in and out like in autocad? If anyone knows, please let me know asap, this clicking an scrolling is driving me nuts!!

Thanks

No, not like Autocad at least. It would be an extremely nice feature though.

The scroll wheel by default acts just like you clicked on the up or down arrow three times. You could reassign it to do a keyboard stroke like Command 1 or Command 2, but this is not like the continuous smooth change in magnification that Autocad provides.

The hold down scroll wheel and pan feature is also very nice in Autocad.

I currently assign the scroll wheel click to open and close the object info pallette.

VW 10 allows you to zoom in and out with the wheel.

I know it does for a PC. I'm looking into if it does it with a mac too.

I am using a Logitech Wireless Mouse, w/ 2 buttons and a scroll wheel, VW 10.1.2, OSX.2.6. Using the mouse wheel, scroll and zoom both work wonderfully, and no setup was required on my part.

A really nice touch with zooming is that the screen anchors at the mouse location, so that spot remains fixed as you zoom. Thanks NNA. It's nice.

Scroll up/down with the wheel

Scroll left/right with Shift-wheel

Zoom in/out with Option-wheel
