Blender: Mouse Button Emulation


General Information

It is perfectly possible to use Blender with a two-button mouse or an Apple single-button Mouse. The missing buttons can be emulated with key/mouse button combos.  

NOTE:  It could be that a MacBook Pro running Blender 2.62 in Ubuntu VMware uses Option-Mouse for RMB & Command-Mouse for? MMB.

To Activate this Functionality

1. Open User Preferences.
