RapidWorks with 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator

Hello, I was wondering if anyone is using RapidWorks with the 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator.  I cannot seem to get the 3D mouse to act the same way as it does in SolidWorks.  Using a regular mouse to move objects in 3D space is rather archaic.


3Dconnexion lists RapidForm as supported software, but I wonder if this includes RapidWorks.  3Dconnexion Properties only lists Any Application.


Tilt, spin, and roll work fine, but pan and zoom do not.  Parts seem to move slow then accelerate off in space.


In 3Dconnexion properties under the App Configuration tab I tried setting Dominant, but this does not help.


In 3Dconnexion properties under the Advanced Settings tab I set the Zoom to Reversed, which helped marginally.


In RapidWorks File Preferences I changed View Manipulation Style to SolidWorks and Zooming Center to Mouse Position, but they do not help.


SolidWorks 2010 x64 SP5.0

RapidWorks 64 3.5.0

Windows 7 SP1 64bit

3Dconnexion 3.15.6


Thanks for any input.
