Ideally, if anything is possible, this is what I’d like to see happen.
- All mouse maneuvers (rotate, pan and zoom) stay as they are.
- Selection is enabled with a left mouse click only (no move).
- The context menu is presented with a right mouse click only (no move).
- Center click only, I have to think about, maybe it could reset the spin center (in addition to double click).
To me this feels more intuitive than the current arrangement. I’ve been using SimScale for a relatively long time and its taken till today to understand why some surfaces “mysteriously” get selected.
Having said that, now that I understand what’s going on, it’s not so bad.
I would ask this question. What advantage does the current arrangement give that it’s worth the confusion to new users?
Or maybe it’s just me. Did others find it annoying that surfaces were unintentionally selected when first learning SimScale?
