Orbit with Right + Left mouse buttons! AutoHotKey Script.

Came from another program where orbiting the model could be done just with the mouse and I missed that function in F360. Created a script with AHK to do just that! Just hold the right & left mouse buttons and drag mouse (the order has to be right hold and then left hold).

 

Download and install AHK: https://www.autohotkey.com/download/  -  Blue download button.

 

Download script: https://mega.nz/#!KvRikSJY!0cQCuKxGE9SgVi4MeJhcvcWGr8iUYZK8Qb7gXKEnHl4

SHA256: ccbe344ed3aec8444badb954231cbcf5a7dacf6aaff63cbfaec9cf98efd48f75

--OR--

copy and paste script from below and paste into notepad, saving as FusionOrbit.ahk

; Fusion 360 Shortcuts
#IfWinActive ahk_exe Fusion360.exe
{
	RButton & LButton::
  		Send, +{MButton Down}
  		while GetKeyState("LButton", "P")
  		{
  			Sleep, 10
  		}
  		Send, {MButton Up}
	Return
	RButton::RButton ; restore the original RButton function
}

Then just put the script in your windows startup folder:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


Hope this other people find this useful!

Oh! That's a good idea. I never cared for any of the available mouse camera movement options, but didn't think of using autohotkey to tweak things.
