Use Gestures to Navigate a Drawing
October 4, 2019
AutoCAD on the Mac supports gestures for both
the trackpad and Magic Mouse. For example, to specify a command or select an object,
use a one-finger click on the trackpad or a left click on Magic Mouse.
To open a shortcut menu, use a two-finger click on the trackpad, or a right click on
Magic Mouse. Different shortcut menus are displayed, depending on whether you’re in
a command or have an object selected. To pan the view of a drawing, use a two-finger
swipe on the trackpad, or a one-finger swipe on Magic Mouse. You can also pan the drawing
by pressing the Spacebar and using a one-finger swipe on trackpad, or by moving Magic Mouse.
Pinch your fingers together on the trackpad to zoom out to see more of the drawing, or
apart to zoom in to see more detail. On Magic Mouse, you can swipe one finger up or down
to zoom in or out. For viewing 3D models, hold the Shift key,
and use a two-finger swipe on the trackpad, or a one-finger swipe on Magic Mouse to orbit
around the 3D model. In the upper-left corner of the drawing window
are the Viewport Label menus. Here you can control the number of viewports, toggle the
display of the ViewCube, select a named or preset view, or select a visual style.
