Two finger pan on Magic Trackpad

Recommended Posts

I seem to recall being able to use two fingers on an Apple Magic Trackpad to pan the display in some previous version of CA for Mac.  I don't seem to be able to do this any longer.  Is there some setting to allow this?

Thanks

It might have to do with force touch. Prior to force touch things were quite different. Every time I get on my wife's 2012 MBP it drives me nuts trying to remember which gesture did what. As far as I know the touch gestures now are universal. The only setting I'm aware of is control of the mouse scroll sensitivity in preferences, which is a great feature.

It’s in

> settings

> accessibility 

> Mouse & Trackpad

> Trackpad Options

• Enable dragging (three finger drag)

 

The great thing about this is you can use your track pad and draw lines, walls etc and you don’t need to hold down the track pad. Just click to start line, wall and drag freely with three fingers wherever you want and then click a second time to complete draw. 

Saved my life kind of tip.

I just realized I miss understood your question. 

For panning I enable “sticky keys”

I then press CMD button once and then I’m in pan mode and only need one finger. 

Otherwise you have to hold down the CMD button while you pan with the trackpad.
