Toggle the rotation mode while sketching?


New member
Can I preset the space navigator so that the ‘toggle the rotation mode’ function by default is on ‘ON’ while sketching. Now every time I am sketching and need to use my space navigator, I have to click the ‘toggle the rotation mode’ icon to enable it.

I remember having this same problem where I used to work, but I currently don't use a SpaceBall device to see if I have the same problem.

Try contacting the 3D Connexion support folks at 3Dconnexion I remember they were pretty helpful when I called them. It might be your driver, or it might be a setting.
