Wacom Tablet Touch Question

johnnydwicked Dec 11, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Does anyone know that a middle button exist on these touch featured tablets? I use 3d programs a lot and the middle mouse button is necessary. Assuming if I were to ditch the mouse and use the tablet full time with and without the pen, I would like to know, if it can emulate a middle button on the touch zones?

I THINK you can set it up in the driver options where you set up your express keys. You probably have to set up a gesture for it? It might make more sense to set up an express key to be the middle mouse button.

I'm talking about the Wacom intuos5 driver here. Just occurred to me you might be talking about the bamboo... Which I have no idea. :(

I believe it depends on the program. You may need to look in the help menu. I have no idea, I'd actually love to know the answer myself.

I believe it can. What 3D program are you using?

Blender, Max, Maya, Softimage, Cinema4d, and Lightwave.

The MMB will work in Blender. I don't know about the other programs.

i wonder if it'll work on the touch function on the wacom touch tablet and how do you use it? three finger gesture?
