Hey,

I was using Magic Prefs but that doesn't appear to work anymore for a 3 fingered middle click. Anyone got any suggestions how to get this functionality back on a newish macbook?

Works on my MBP, it's a little twitchy at times, but it does work. What version OS X are you on?


I wish Houdini just allowed a user to set up something like Option-Click or Shift-Click in lieu of the middle-button, it's quite annoying that it doesn't do that, and I bet it inconveniences Windows users too on some laptops.

Hey,

I'm using High Sierra. On a new Macbook Pro.
Seems there's a note on MagicPref's front page [magicprefs.com] about Apple changing the API's and mucking up his plugin:
“TLDR if it doesn't work anymore thats it, if it still works then its just a matter of time until it won't.”

Really it's just for navigation (both the viewport and chops) that I need it. Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks

I don't understand what thoughts you're looking for? It still works fine on my MBP with the latest OS X version 10.13.5. I have it set up for 3-finger click = middle button. As I said, sometime it takes a couple of tries to engage properly but it does work.
