Hmm.. I suppose Ctrl + Left mouse button could work....
Seems like it would be one or the other, a scroll wheel takes the place of a middle button. And most programs use scrolling. (and scroll is 'zoom' in many art/photo apps). I'd wager more people have scroll mice, rather than three-button mice.

As it happens, I have a Logitech gaming mouse with more buttons than I can remember and I can set the scroll wheel to act like a middle button, but most probably can't.

I haven't decided if I like the click and drag box for selection, yet. It's a natural action for a PShop/PSP/etc. user, though. Thinking of that, radio buttons to control the actions of the mouse buttons are a possibility. Like changing tools in PShop.

I can open mine. Some get an error, though, but the work still seems to be there.

(When you get anerrror message, just click 'continue'. So far, nothing bad has happened.)

If haven't changed the way files are opened so Ithere shouldn't be any issues. I'll look into it.

Sorry about the mouse thing, seems a lot of people don't have a middle button. I'll sort it our tomorrow.

Hi!
I succeeded in to restore the old version 3.5.2.7,,and everything works Ok
So it's not my new Win 7 SP1 , nor the commas
Can I download the new version to continue to track where the problem can be, while keeping the old one, to work normally?

BTW the mouse scroll wheel, if pushed down, acts like a middle key, and you can drag the geometry schem..

Mosquito, can you send me (peter@leonardaudio.co.uk) one of your files that you can't load and I'll see if i can find the problem with it.

In the meantime, I'm gonna go for Left Mouse = Selection Box, Scroll Wheel to Zoom and then you can select whether you use the Middle Button or the Right Button to Pan.

By the way, teh reasoning for introducing the selection box is that some users were having trouble selecting really small elements. And like you say, it is a software standard to have a selection box when you click and hold the left mouse.

Well.. To design most enclosures you can use the program in exactly the same way as you used to.

However, to design something like a Front Loaded horn then you need to have an enclosure both behind the speaker and infront of the speaker. (So you cannot 'see' the speaker).

The below image shows the kind of enclosure you would design using this method:

Click the image to open in full size.

For Example:
- Start the default project and open the enclosure window:
- The existing element is 'Rear' i.e. behind the driver. So make this into a simple closed box, like in the image. Lets make it 12.25L (0.175m x 0.07m)

So set its length to 0.175m and its start and end areas to 0.07m

As it is now, your enclosure is just a simple sealed box, but we also want there to be a horn in front on the speaker. So you need to add an element to the front of the speaker. Right click anywhere and select 'Add Front Element'

Spin, the new (green) element around so it is facing the other way (180 Deg).
Make it open.
Make it 1.3m long
Make its start area 0.05m
Make its end area 1.66m

You should now have a horn enclosure that (with the default driver) is tuned to around 75Hz.
