Logitech MX Master 3

Been using Sketchup for years and do everything in it as a hobby maker. Here’s my shed for example.

In all those years I have had a thumb button which temporarily switches to “Orbit” while holding it down so the button click alone means I can orbit by moving the mouse.

If I ALSO left click while holding the thumb button, I temporarily switch to “Pan”. So that’s with the thumb switch AND the left mouse button held down.

When I release them both, it reverts to the previous tool, usually select.

It basically does this with any old mouse that has a wheel and left right and a thumb button.

Every mouse except my fabulous but currently useless MX Master 3. I am dumbfounded. I do not know how I have set this up or even if I have set it up, it has always just worked. I can’t figure out how to make the MX Master 3 perform this simple operation so I can be in select mode (for example) orbit while holding the thumb button or pan by holding the thumb button and left click.

Please help. What is the magic key combination or modifier string I need to use. Please don’t suggest “O” or “P”, that just switches tools. Also B simply switches tools which is not what I need.



There have been threads on this sort of thing before. Here’s something that might help.

Nope. Didn’t work. My old Microsoft mouse (which is losing its laser) still performs as I would hope. The MX doesn’t.

What is the actual command I need to make this feature work?

The basic action is Middle Mouse Button.

Box, thank you thank you. You are a star.

And now this puzzle turns out to be so simple, I feel like an idiot.

I am now a happy idiot! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
