3Dconnexion SpaceMouse in 2D viewports

Hi there,

I started using the 3Dconnexion mouse, and was wondering if there is a way to change the zoom behaviour for 2D viewports only.

In 3D it makes sense for up/down to move the camera on the Z axis, but in a 2D view (regardles if XZ or YZ) it would make more sense to make forward/back the way to navigate “up and down”.

The solution to this issue is found within the Advanced Settings of 3dconnexion app (see screenshot), called ‘Zoom Direction’. Simply change this setting to ‘Foward/Backword’.

But this also changes the mouse behaviour in 3D…

Unfortunately yes but that’s the only caveat I could find with this solution and it works well enough for me in adapting to the process of changing the setting when changing viewports.

Possibly someone could automate this process…
