Mouse Gestures in DraftSight was implemented by the DraftSight development team (and added to DraftSight first). Graebert has a license to use it in their distributions of ARES; DS SolidWorks owns the IP of Mouse Gestures.

This doesn't look greatly different from Autodesk's four-year-old Steering Wheel, one of the UI changes introduced along with the Ribbon in AutoCAD 2009.

I find it annoying and leave it turned off in AutoCAD, so the belated presence of something similar in competitive products doesn't strike me as particularly innovative or desirable.

There is the same round look as the Steering Wheel in AutoCAD, but the operation is quite different. The Steering Wheel is for navigating through a drawing (not sure why that is needed in LT!) but these are for accessing commands -- more like the in-drawing device used by Inventor.


Agree, more like the Inventor (Fusion) Marking Menu which I quite like using although not a frequent Inventor user. Would like to see that in other Autodesk products.
