Over the past few months I have switched my entire workflow to be completely mobile (no peripherals) just the laptop. I was able to convert Houdini to work nicely with this set up. The only trouble I am having is being able to access the ladder when changing parameters. I am able to roll my fingers (as you would a webpage) to get through the units quickly and hold SHIFT to slow it down. However I would love access to the 00's, 10's 100's etc. Does anyone have any idea how to access this with the touchpad?

Thanks

Map one of your keyboard keys to the middle mouse button.

I use karabiner, but I haven't run houdini on osx in a while, it seems every major osx upgrade breaks this handy tool:

There's an envvar trick from Noah documented there too.
