Customization of Mouse Gestures
Mouse Gestures is a completely customizable and context sensitive which mean user may have a different set of commands for sketch, part, assembly and drawing mode. However, some commands are unable to use in drawing mode as some features do not allow in drawing mode.
For instance, the CTRL key does not need to be held while holding the scroll wheel to pan since the view of a drawing cannot be rotated. Figure 1 and 2 show some example about Mouse Gestures Guide.
In customization, user can enable or disable Mouse Gestures as well as choose the number of gestures from 2, 3, 4, 8 or 12 and assign commands on each part of the Mouse Gesture Guide. To add a command to the gesture wheel, simply drag the Command lit onto the spot on the wheel where you want it. By default, mouse gestures are enabled and display four gestures in the mouse gestures guide. Figure 3 shows the interface of Mouse Gestures Settings.
Note that zoom direction can be customized in Mouse Gestures too. By default, the view will zoom in when the mouse wheel is rolled backward (towards user) vice versa. If users willing to reverse these commands, they can modify the settings in System Options and then choose the View from the list. Next, check the box which indicates “Reverse mouse wheel zoom direction” and make a change on it.
According to the above steps and explanations, Mouse Gestures significantly helps users for easier control during modelling.
