I'm trying to make it so that you do not need to rely on keyboard presses to manipulate a 3D graphic. I've done some searching, but I can't find a way to make it so that Mathematica will recognize something else as equivalent to a Shift or Ctrl press. Anyone have any ideas on how I could make a 3D Graphic fairly interactive with only a touchpad? (Pinch-to-Zoom, Two-Finger Panning, etc.)? Thanks in advance.

By the way, I'm running a Logitech T651 on a Mac (I am using the Mac-compatible touchpad). The Pinch feature on the touchpad currently causes all of Mathematica to be magnified, including any interfaces or lines of code. Not sure if this helps.

" GestureHandler".... check this function – Rorschach Jul 12 '13 at 16:26
OH! Yeah, I, unfortunately, forgot to mention that I tried an example from the Mathematica Documentation using GestureHandler, but it failed to acknowledge that a pinch had occurred. – Matt Jul 12 '13 at 16:27
you shall post it here...someone might help – Rorschach Jul 12 '13 at 16:29
The easiest way is probably to get for example Better Touch Tool from the App Store and map some gesture to those keys. Guaranteed to work and only takes like a minute. – Pickett Jul 12 '13 at 17:20
To my knowledge, Better Touch Tool does not support Logitech touchpads. – Matt Jul 12 '13 at 17:34
