Battling with lateral epicondylitis (tennis/mouse elbow) that I attribute mainly to zooming in and out in solidworks with the center mouse scroll wheel. Does anyone know of an easy way to map this to the keyboard? My thought was to have two keys on the keyboard assigned to zoom in/zoom out. Similar to "Z" and "Control Z", but would follow the location of your mouse cursor. I know a space pilot would be an option....just looking for a poor mans version. Would a user require a macro enabled keyboard to do this?
