hi,
i just got an touch screen pc and i would like to know if i can set up a n "orbit" button in the menu like the pan and magnify button.

i know you can use the orbit tool on top right of perspective window but its position at way off top right limits the amount of movement i can get within my screen.

tnx for any ideas.

sorry, should have mentioned its a tablet...Microsoft Surface Pro. so, hoping for a method using just the tablet, no keyboard.

Is it Surface Pro or Surface Pro 2 with full Win8.1

its the earlier model...there was a sale. but the update to win8.1 is free. its adequate for some quicky stuff. any ideas on the "orbit" menu button?

I have the Surface Pro 2.
On the bottom right there is a touch keyboard icon.
This is the on-screen keyboard.
You may be able to use Alt and drag.

Tnx, but there is another keyboard which you can resize. I found it by typing keyboard in the search charm. I can resize it to take just a little screen space and move it off to a corner.

But a better solution is a button in lightwave's menu....anyone?
