Hi Matt,

Thanks so much! It was super exciting to get the Mailbox Peak release out. Thanks for the feedback - people were asking for it the other way (that it changed to), but you're absolutely right, it makes you dependent on using a keyboard now. On a laptop, using the right-click option is a huge pain, but on a desktop, having to use the computer keyboard is probably equally annoying. I like the idea of a checkbox you can toggle (that might even help if you're switching to work on World Machine between a desktop and a laptop). I agree it doesn't sound like it should be too hard to implement, but you never know how these things might go. :) I'll definitely look into it - enjoy using Mailbox Peak!

Hi, congratulations on the release of Mailbox Peak! Its great! One small request:

The default left-mouse drag action is now panning instead of box-select. I actually much preferred the old behavior of the default left mouse drag action being box select, as right-click dragging already covers panning. This old behavior relieves basic selection and panning from requiring keyboard buttons. It seems trivial to include a checkbox option to switch between the two behaviors.
