Configuring mouse centre scroll click to pan drawing

Recommended Posts

Ive got a Logitech LS1 laser mouse which is a standard mouse with a scroll wheel which is clickable.


On some machines ive got Vectorworks installed on ive had the mouse scroll wheel setup so i can pan around the drawings in the same way the pan tool works. 


On my laptop running OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 ive not been able to get this to work, it always brings up OSX's mission control view. Ive recently downloaded the settings programme for my mouse in which it gives me some options to configure various features, but im unsure what i should set the centre scroll button click to do, to enable panning in Vectorworks - Any ideas ? 


Please see attached screenshot of settings for reference.

You need the MMB = middle mouse button.


I hope if you choose "Click" or "Advanced Click" there will open an

option palette where you can select and assign a "middle Click".

Thanks Zoomer, you where correct, there is an option for middle click under the "click" settings which sorted it. 


Thanks again !
