MacBook navigation problem


I installed Blender 2.59 on my MacBook 1.1, OSX 10.6.7.
I can’t move the viewport with my touchpad. I can only go from a predefined view (left right front back etc) to another…

Anything I missed?



I used to have a similar problem. Odd as it sounds, opening the Preferences and then closing it fixed it.

Try that

The viewport controls use the middle mouse button so you will have trouble with just a pad.

In the preferences, you can enable 2 button mouse, which will let you use ctrl or alt (can’t recall) to move the views with the left mouse button
Thanks, that’s it. I enabled the 3buttons mouse and now it works with alt.
