About the Trackpad Navigation Discussion category

Trackpad Navigation is a new feature of SketchUp for Web to improve multitouch gestures for trackpads so users without a mouse can more successfully navigate in SketchUp. You will now be able to pinch-to-zoom and two-finger swipe to orbit and pan.

To try it out, load SketchUp for Web and open App Settings (from the ‘hamburger’ menu in the top left corner). Select the Navigation tab, then change your device from Mouse to Trackpad. Learn about all the settings on our Help Center page for this Labs project.

We’re introducing this capability with a SketchUp Labs designation because trackpads and mice behave differently across devices, operating systems, and even web browsers. If you run into problems, please share what device, operating system, and browser you are using. We’ll be listening eagerly for your feedback!
