Apple magic mouse compatibility

It would be great to make Onshape more Mac friendly (and not requiring a non Apple mouse with the 3rd wheel/button) if the panning function would work by using a combination of the right mouse button (now rotate) + holding down the spacebar. I think I've experienced this kind of behaviour in some other program - possibly in Adobe Illustrator to pan around the canvases.

    I thought we could pan using ctrl plus right mouse button? Have you looked into Better Touch Tool? You can add a middle mouse click action using the middle portion of the mouse as the virtual button.

    @William_van_Beek Many of us use them here internally.  I am wondering if there is something you are missing.  Maybe enabling right click context?

    I use a magic mouse with onshape with no issues.

    Like Lou says, I have the rmb enabled in osx preferences. 

    I use onshape's settings with the zoom wheel reversed.
