  • You can just hit your space bar to move the grid.  I think that is what you are talking about.

    I had the same question after watching her video so I found this thread with the question.  However, her answer doesn't work for me as I don't use a mouse and therefore don't have a wheel.  I use a drawing pad instead of a traditional mouse. How do I rotate the image using either my drawing pad, or the pad on my laptop?

    Thanks Crazy_Mr_Zing.  Actually I'm trying to figure out how to rotate and skew the image like she does in her video.

    @Pampurrs You want to rotate and skew with out a mouse ?

    With a mouse its much the same as MTC left click on the shape and you will get the red arrows to rotate , skew or resize
    you might have to zoom in to see them

    You can do it with the mouse pad on the laptop left click on the red arrow and drag you finger . it a little tricky

    I've never used a drawing pad so not sure how that translates

    PCS also has a default rotate by degrees in program preference if you hold ALT while dragging the rotation will snap by the degree setting

    not sure which video your referring to

     I don't know if it can be done without a mouse that has a wheel.  Now, its been quite a while since I messed with PCS but when it first came out, I had it on a laptop with just the "pad" and no mouse.  I had some "issues" with trying to do some things (don't remember now what they were) and Andy, the developer, noted then that you really needed to have a mouse WITH a wheel to be able to properly do certain things in PCS.  As a result, I got an inexpensive wireless mouse that had a wheel that I used when I used PCS.  I think one of them was zooming in and out and changing the "view" probably others.
