Draftsight Tutorial: Using the mouse gesture

30 July, 2010


The Mouse Gesture is a way of combining pointing device movements and clicks which DraftSight recognizes as a specific command. Mouse gestures can provide quick access to common functions of a program. They can also be useful for people who have difficulties typing commands. To access the Mouse Gesture wheel, hold the Right Mouse Button down, and move the mouse in the desired direction.  To cancel the Mouse Gesture, release the Right Mouse Button while the pointing device is within the inner ring. In DraftSight you have the option of having 4 or 8 Mouse Gestures available.  Or, you can disable Mouse Gestures all together if that’s what you want.  The default commands when using 4 Mouse Gestures are: Zoom Bounds, Line, Save and Open.  The additional default commands on the 8 Mouse Gesture wheel are: Trim, SimpleNote, Move and Offset.

The great thing about the Mouse Gesture function is the commands used are easily customized, so you can choose any combination of 8 commands that you commonly use.  To access the menu for control of the Mouse Gesture, simply click Options>Mouse Gestures… You do not have DraftSight?

  • Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “Feeling passionate about something is like getting a peak at your soul smiling back at you.” by Amanda Medinger.
