Orbit on middle mouse button

I need to be able to work back and forth with sketchup, and revit. Unfortunatly the orbit and pan commands in revit are the exact opposite of sketchup( mmb = pan in revit) (mmb = orbit in sketchup) (shift + mmb = orbit in revit) (shift + mmb = pan in sketch up) 


these commands are ingrained in my muscule memory and going back and forth is like writing one sentnce with your left hand and the next with your right. it is totally dibilitating. 


Is there any way to customize these in revit? Can i change the MMB to be orbit and shift+MMB to be pan ?

Hello and Welcome to the Disussion!


Currently - not that I know of... 

I know on some logitech mice, in the setpoint controls you can assign certain functions to the different mouse buttons.


Otherwise - unfortunately no.

You can't think AutoCAD and run Revit.
