What's your Mouse Gesture setup? I was talking about mouse gestures with some folks in a different thread (Glenn Schroeder,Frederick Law,John Stoltzfus) and it made me curious about how we all use mouse gestures. Now that it's easier to share a visual layout of our gesture settings (go to customize > mouse gestures), let's all share our setups, start a discussion, and learn something new!

I am trying to write my first Solidworks Add-In in C# but have faced an issue and could not find any answer for it. The connection to Solidworks works, I can create a menu/toolbar with a button but I cannot make the ButtonCallBack/MyMenuCallback work. It would be great if you can help me with that.
