Wacom tablet scroll and zoom bahavior

I use a Wacom Pen and Toch to control my computer. This causes some serious problems when controling AutoCAD.

 

Here is the way it works now. Two finger drag (which is what is normally used for scrolling) is used by AutoCAD to zoom. To scroll, I hold the option key (as there is no mouse scroll wheel to click). However, I want scrolling to be the primary function, and zooming to be the secondary, as this is the way Photoshop works.

 

Also, while scrolling, AutoCAD uses natural scrolling (as they call it in OS X Lion), regardless of my system settings. I'd like it the other way around. When I push left, I want to see what is to the left.

 

Does anyone know a way to chang these features. I'm in AutoCAD 2012 on OS 10.7.3. The AutoCAD preferences are horrifyingly simple compared to the rest of the app. Are there other menus I don't know about?

Not a user setting to change.

You can confirm it by asking in the MAC forum: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-for-Mac/bd-p/520

Meh. The scrolling vs zooming problem is a bigger issue for me than the natural scrolling, which I do not suspect has anything to do with the OS. If the bigger problem can't be fixed, the other is irrelevant.
