Same for me, it's like a "sticky" effect, maybe to prevent moving it by accident when you keep the mouse button pressed just a tad too long?
I'm not sure I'm following you. What's that circle you're talking about?garya wrote: ↑Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:09 pmThere is an obvious circle in the middle of the cube, which is used to set one of several axonometric views depending on the current orientation of the object. If you are already looking at that axonometric view, the area appears to be non-functional. Similarly, if a single face is showing, the face appears to have no function, and I still need to drag to the edge of the cube to get it to move.
Maybe there's some misconception here. You can't actually rotate the 3D view by rotating the cube. You can't rotate the cube by itself. You can only click on one of the visible cube's face to reorient the 3D view. The cube gets rotated when you rotate the 3D view with the mouse.
Unless I misunderstood what you were saying.
Agreed. When you press and hold the left mouse button on the cube, the mouse pointer should change to a hand like other software do.garya wrote: ↑Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:09 pmA clear distinction can usually be made in terms of intent when a user presses and drags, vs. clicks (presses and releases) a mouse button (Modulo some small delta to allow for shaky hands). That distinction is apparently not being used for navigation with the nav cube.
I confirm. To enable the curved arrow, my mouse pointer's tip needs to be right in the arrow's axis, or lower; or the arrow will be inactive. It looks like if you trace a centre line on the arrow's axis, the outer region of the arrow is inactive, while the inner region works.garya wrote: ↑Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:09 pmTo be clear on the registration issue: If you place the pointer where it is in the image below, do you see a blue or a white background in the curved arrow under the pointer, and if you click does the 3D image rotate? In my case, the background is white, not blue, and the image does not rotate. Note that the pointer is well within the underlying arrow image;
