What's the secret to getting my 3D mouse working in OnShape? Works beautifully in "The other CAD software".

    Cool! Now it works just as beautifully here. Life is good.

    OK... I just installed Onshape today. Looks good so far... Then, I updated my 3Dconnexion 3D mouse driver in hopes I could use it with Onshape... No joy. Well, a bit of joy, but all I can seem to do is zoom diagonally in/out. What is the magic to getting full functionality out of my 3D mouse? Thanks!

    Well... my 3Dconnexion Space Mouse is now working! Yippee! Not sure what happened. When the newest driver didn't make a difference, I rebooted the whole computer, hoping some magic might happen. Upon startup, the 3D mouse behaved the same as before. Then, a few minutes later... Viola! The 3D mouse works just like it did with SW! Yippee!!  I am a happy-camper, now!  All that is left is to learn how to use OnShape...
