Right Clicking

Please note that mydaEs uses in a number of areas a ‘right click’ context sensitive menu. Even though the Apple designers have sometimes done away with a right click button on your mouse, it is still possible to bring up the context sensitive menus on your MAC in a number of ways.

If you have a Trackpad, the default behaviour for a ‘Secondary Click’ is clicking with two fingers next to each other at the same time. You can of course though alter this behaviour in ‘System Preferences’ – ‘Trackpad’.

If you have an external one button mouse, you will have to hold down the Ctrl key before you click your main mouse button to trigger the right click menu.

If your mouse supports it though, you will have options in ‘System Preferences’ – ‘Mouse’ to configure what action triggers the right click menu.

Please note, that a right click menu is not only used on mydaEs, it is commonly used throughout your MAC software.
