Can't interact with view cube?

Hey all,

Somewhat new to onshape, but I've consistently been having a problem where when I click and drag on the view cube, I imagine that the view should rotate with me but instead the view cube just moves around the screen. Is that expected behavior? I'm seeing it in different browsers.

    Use the same button you use to rotate the view normally to rotate using the view cube. By default, this will be the right mouse button.

    So does it not work at all with a macbook trackpad? neither option-click nor two finger click works

    Yes I use it all the time - rotate is click-drag right mouse button, so on a trackpad you can set it to be click-hold-lower-right-drag-with-other-finger or as I have it which is click-drag-two-fingers. And please ignore the view cube top right, just drag in the graphics area.
