Disable Option + Middle Mouse to zoom

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the option to disable the zoom when pressing option and the middle mouse button. I am using an Apple Magic Mouse and when ever I press the option key (duplicating selected objects) you can very easily accidentally touch the middle mouse area on the Magic Mouse. This makes the zoom jump in and out all the time.

Would be good if there was an option to prevent this in the same way that you have an option to disable scrubby zoom etc.

 

Thanks.

Hi @eon Designs,

under 'Preferences > Tools' there is an option 'Use mouse wheel to zoom'. This turns off the necessity to press 'option' in order to zoom. This should (hopefully) do what you are asking for :)

Hello

Thanks for the reply, turning that option on makes no difference. 

The problem is that I am trying to stop zoom from happening at all with the Apple Magic Mouse. When I use the option key to duplicate any selected objects, I can very easily touch the middle section of the mouse, this causes the window to zoom in or out unintentionally. This is what I am hoping to prevent. Other navigation with the Magic Mouse is superb - swipe up or down to move pages up and down, swipe left and right to move pages left and right. Its only when using option that problems occur.

Sorry to see, that this makes no differemce for you (and your Mouse).

Then this seems to be a valid feature request.
