Change Mouse Rotation, Panning Settings


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Change Mouse Rotation, Panning Settings

How can I change the mouse rotation (right-click hold, drag) and panning (right-click hold + shift, drag) settings?


This is killing my arthritis-filled fingers.  It's especially bad on my Thinkpad trackpads that require such high holding force, and Yoga-style multi-hand, multi-finger gymnastics to do a simple pan.  No other application, not a single one, has this crazy setup that Cura has.  Or, they have it easily configurable in their settings.

 

Is there a json file I can edit somewhere for the key/mouse bindings?  Technically, I am using the AppImage version of Cura (on Linux).  but for this, I'll build a new appimage if I have to. 

 

If you do a search, there are many posts of similar confusion as this is a non-intuitive setup.  Many people starting out in Cura, and many posts asking how to do simple movements like this (I, for one, had to search to find it as well).  These posts date back all the way to 2014, and version 2.x.  Through 3.x. And it continues to 4.x.

    There is not. There is no way to configure this; it would need a change in code.

     

    The only consolation I can offer is that for panning, you can use left-click+shift instead of right-click+shift.
