Description

many laptops lack a clickable middle mouse button, and there is no way to remap the controls that use it (camera pan, whack a kerbal, etc) meaning that laptop useres cannot use those functions.

I keep installing KSP upgrades, but for some reason none of them have caused my laptop's trackpad to sprout a middle mouse button!

On OS X, if you have BetterTouchTool (https://www.boastr.net/) it is possible to configure it to cause three-finger clicks to send a Middleclick event to KSP. It is then possible to pan the camera, but awkwardly: you must click the trackpad with three fingers and then lift two of them before dragging to pan. Whack-a-Kerbal also works, provided you don't mind that some of your shots go in completely random directions.

It should not be necessary to buy third-party software tools to make use of normal KSP features.

hehe. There was bound to be a couple that didn't need clarification with the bulk changes for the cleanup, but I reckon this one takes the cake.

Thanks for the update
