  • You can use the magic mouse very effectively as a three button mouse for Sketchup by adding a control key.

    To ensure context related menus are available set up right clicking first.

    In Preferences->Mouse->Point & Click->Secondary click -check on -Click on right side

    In Sketchup to ZOOM , ORBIT and PAN without clicking menus while designing try the following:

    ZOOM works (with any tool selected) just by running your finger on the middle of the mouse (like an imaginary scroll wheel)

    Using the 'select pointer' mode, press and hold the left side of the mouse as follows:

    to ORBIT press and hold CONTROL and COMMAND
    to PAN add and hold SHIFT (combo of CONTROL and COMMAND and SHIFT)

  • Two buttons only. If you are used to a three button mouse this is not for you. I use Sketchup and am adjusting to life using my left hand on the ctrl button. :(

  • In sketchup use keys to switch on Pan and Orbit tools. Zoom working, as mentioned.
    You can setup keys on your choice in Preferences. For example, the closest for left hand Z and X.
    It's easier than hold three buttons

  • I don't know what sketchup is but this IS NOT a three button mouse and does not currently have the capability of being programed to be.
