Well, if the only thing preventing the viewpoint button from being removed is the lack of a middle mouse button alternative for zooming, why not add an option to where it's done by holding both left and right mouse buttons?
sounds good

Oh, well in that case lower my percentage of useage to 10% because I never noticed that... I guess I use Alt more often than I thought.

is this universally true?it seems to be performing as expected for me unless i'm missing something,which is always a possibility. :)
enclosed vid shows me using arc rotate in viewport mode without any obvious setbacks. unless as i say i'm not understanding.

captaindrewi, the issue is with using the rotate tool in viewpoint mode, which is supposed to do the same thing as the arc rotate's rotation function. Go in viewpoint mode, click on the Rotate View button (<r>) in the left-hand toolbar (not the arc rotate button in the top toolbar), and try rotating around.

Another option is to add three icons onto the viewport/workspace (top right corner, probably), where you click and drag on one and it pans the view, click and drag on another and it rotates the view, click and drag on the other and it scales the view.
sounds suspiciously like a variation on the theme of widgets 8)

it adds more noise to the workspace
am tempted to say "what if they only appear when you activate Arc Rotate", but i'm sure somebody would come back and say that isn't newbie-friendly... which is probably true :(

Responding because of V1.0 Beta.

Please do not remove it. Or at least make it enable-able from some options mode.

Please also add optional middle mouse rotate to match the functionality of some other 3d editors. Middle mouse scroll already can zoom, please add rotate too.
