First time use, how do I swap "Wheel Click" and "Right Click"

(1/2) > >>

Elok:
Basically, default control of Altium are counter-intuitive for me and it would give me a huge help to swap Middle and Right click of the mouse. I've been searching this on google for some time without success.

And please, don't try to convince me to use the default settings.

As in for pan vs. zoom view?

I don't think you can...

AutoHotKey might be able to capture and redirect inputs, not sure.

And for reference... so, PDF viewers typically click-and-drag pan with left button (grabber hand tool thingy).  A lot of programs use middle click.  Altium uses right click.  No consistency whatsoever. ::)

Yes,  I would like to assign Zoom In/Out to Wheel Up/down and Panning to middle-click (or wheel click).

And I cannot use a software to swap middle-right click since I'll lose access to properties with right-click......

Quite a shame, to have a program so complex and so many option but didn't allow this simple change.

T3sl4co1l:
You can filter click type in AHK as well -- it's not just about inputs, but it's a complete scripting language as well.  Worth looking at, just in general, for all those things "you didn't realize you need"!

It would be so much easier, so it would seem, to have put it in as a configuration option.  But alas... this is Altium we're talking about...

I've got scroll wheel click assigned to ALT + Left and in Altium with both Right and Left mouse buttons clicked Scroll will zoom.

Trackman 2 button mouse
