I just found out a new solution that can bypass Magic Prefs completely and appears to work quite well making Houdini instantly more useable to Mac users.

Go in your Houdini.env file (it's in your User Library/Preferences/Houdini), and simply add this somewhere in the text file:

# HOUDINI MIDDLE MOUSE PAN ENABLE/DISABLE
HOUDINI_MMB_PAN = 0

What it does is basically tell Houdini to disable the Middle Button for panning, which in turn switches panning to the Right Button. So now the Left Button rotates, the Right Button Pans…but what about Zoom? No problem, just use the 2-Finger scroll on your pad and you can now Zoom. Neat huh?

Yeah very neat. Thanks loads

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
