Magic mouse zoom


Zooming with the Magic mouse with Mac studio, sonoma 14.2 is too fast.


don't see any responses as i am also trying to figure out how to use apple magic mouse to pan left/right. i looked at the archicad 22 post but still don't see anything that shows a bit more detail for archicad 27. especially since the magic mouse has no wheel?

You should be able to change the zoom

speed in the mouse settings. Try also turning inertia to off. 

Unfortunately there is no middle mouse click on the Magic Mouse. Not very magic really and it’s still quite unbelievable that Apple still haven’t included this. Especially when the Mighty Mouse used to do it. 

You can get an app called Middle which enables the middle click and in turn pan on the Mac.


It would also be worth providing feedback to Apple about this. The more we do it the more likely they are to introduce it.
