    Hi Adam,
    thank you for a really great series :)
    When finishing the buttons I used the 17b-option since I’m still stuck with 2012. Turned out though I get a cleaner tree and less work adding fillets. Love the different options for adding penny-grooves and also the different ways for adding the logos.
    It would be interesting to see your wacom set-up when working in SolidWorks, I have my lower pen button for middle click and the upper one for right click. It’s taking me some to get used to using the wacom tablet but you’re right; the transfer to adobe applications is sweet.

      Glad to hear it, Peter! Yeah, as with most things, there are lots of ways of dealing with those buttons, just depending exactly what you want to do with them. That said, 17B is definitely the superior method in nearly every case :) I had avoided it initially because I thought it was too convoluted for a simple tutorial, but in the end it’s actually quite a bit simpler. Always learnin’!

      I use the upper button as MMB and the lower button as RMB, but I suppose it doesn’t matter either way. I love it!
