How to track navigate (side-to-side) on a Macbook Pro?

Hi,,

How do we track navigate in Maya user interface on a Macbook Pro laptop ? On windows I would have used Alt+MMB+Click ,but we do not have MMB on a Macbook Pro . SO how do we do it in Maya on a Mac ?


Thanks.,
Datta

I was not being flip about it. I really can't see how you can be the least bit productive working Maya without a 3 button mouse. I have a MBPro as well as a MacPro. That particular mouse I linked to at Newegg is small, the wireless receiver stores in the mouse and acts as a switch to turn it off. Battery lasts for months. Mac's natively want to only be one button. You can get a rt mouse button by putting two fingers on the pad, holding down click, releasing the two fingers and then draging on the pad. I know of no way of getting a middle mouse button just using keyboard/trackpad incantations. Just getting a rt mouse button is near rediculous. It is your pain but unless your only Maya time is sitting somewhere with your laptop in your lap, I'd get the mouse and save Maya time when you have a table.

you can set your preferences to 2 or 1 button mapping. then you can use command+option+right click to pan.

with 1 button mapping you won't have dollying, but you can use 2 finger drag to zoom in and out. with 2 button mapping you use command+option+right, but it is almost impossible to do because there is no 2 finger tap and drag- you have to click with two fingers and go into a drag and that's hard.

1 button works fine if you really need to go there.


edit: i started working with the 1button mapping on my laptop because the only mouse i have is a wacom tablet and it's a pain to drag it out and connect it every time. the 2 finger scroll/zoom stopped working half way through but the control+option+click started working for dollying. 1 button mapping works pretty well once you get used to it.

On my machine it was Command-option-Left and not right that performed tracking. I tried right and it wasn't doing anything...
