Orbit using Keyboard

Hey all,


   I've just started using Inventor Fusion and I can't get into a rhythm because this one thing is driving me crazy. I know the manual says that F4 is the shortcut key for the Orbit function but that doesn't seem to work on my Macbook Pro. F4 is a global command key that brings up the launchpad. I've tried to disable this feature in hopes that F4 will work with the orbit function but have had no success. Its kind of annoying since I got this program straight out of the mac store, but I can't really complain since it was free! I'm hoping someone could give me a workaround.

  Yeah I read that in the manual but I'm using a Macbook and it doesn't work using a two finger swipe (which is the equivalent of the middle mouse button on the trackpad) It just zooms in and out. Is this a glitch or is there a workaround?

Thanks for your time
