Title: laptop mouse pad
Post by: captaindrewi on February 13, 2009, 02:42:09 pm
don't know if this relates to some of Tanzims problems....

I tried to follow the easy eyes tutorial also, my abilities related to figures and sequences have been a bit hit and miss.
and following the tutorial  i  couldnt get things to work.
On a whim decided to try it on another computer and accidently realised that the functionality of my laptop is to blame.
The other computer has a mouse and adds much more functionality to moving the bones  to where i want them etc
In the 'easy eyes tutorial' the right mouse button is the area where my laptop mousepad lets me down.
Clicking what should in effect be the right mouse button has no effect.....no wonder my figure/sequencing progress has been a bit stuttered.
Is there a way round this laptop based drawback ?
i suppose i could plug in an external mouse.

that's probably the way forward.  if you don't have one, dabs.com will sell you one for as little as 3.41, apparently.
