Yes, but now we have TWO mouse buttons[/quote]
or more… i personally use a 7 button mouse with rhino on my desktop.
what do you want to be able to do? i think you’d have a much better chance at getting a feature implemented in a program if you can describe a way in which the desired behavior is advantageous over an existing behavior… and even then, you’ll need some luck on your side …
but just saying “it should do something” or “i don’t like it” or similar isn’t going to go very far (imo).
fwiw, there are currently functions tied to those keys while using left-mouse button…
when dragging (left-click and hold an object -> drag), pressing the cmmd key will drag the object or point vertically.
also when dragging, tapping the option key will create a duplicate object
during applicable commands, holding the option key will suppress oSnaps…
during applicable commands, holding the shift key will temporarily toggle Ortho mode.
holding option key prior to window selecting will allow you to window select while the cursor is over an object (preventing dragging)
cmmd key is used for elevator mode
cmmd left-click is deselect an object
shift left-click is for adding to a selection.
probably some others i’m not thinking of at the moment.
those all are modifier keys to be used in conjunction with the left-mouse button… to me, it’s overloaded as is and i really don’t think even more UI controls should be tied to those three keys… making them customizable (again, in my opinion) is going to lead to a lot of unnecessary confusion with little to no benefit otherwise (but again, you haven’t actually described the improved behavior so maybe i’ll change my mind upon hearing it).
re: the control key… i think Apple leaves the behavior as is for trackpad users and possibly other input devices… as well as it just being legacy behavior.
