Have you tried using the touchpad for navigation?

Hey, Windows users!

A few weeks ago we added the ability to navigate your viewport with the touchpad. We’ve been getting quite positive feedback about the UX we created for the Mac’s trackpad in the past year, but due to the diversity of the hardware and the way touchpads are handled by the OS we had to implement a new, different approach on Windows.

I’d like to hear your thoughts about it – have you tried it? Did you find it usable? Do you perhaps even prefer it to using a mouse (as many of our Mac users do)? Or was it confusing and horrible?

Hey Pascal! Great feedback, as usual, thanks.

With the Windows CAD programs you use the most, do you ever run into a situation though when you’d want to use the app but your mouse is not available to use? I’d imagine situations like when you hop onto a meeting, visit a client, waiting at an airport…
