I'm using mac as well, for me using ctrl works fine, sorry. But I got a proper mouse anyway, so -yes get a rightclick mouse!
I'm thinking of getting a new mac soon, so what mac are you running maya on and how's the performance? thanks

thanks for the responses. Ctrl doesnt work for me. And simply plugging in a right click mouse...didnt occur to me haha.

I just got a 24 inch imac desktop and its super fast and handles maya really well. My PC would crash all the time when I ran Maya. When you buy a mac online you can pick the features you want and one of them was larger graphics memory especially for 3D, so if you get a mac make sure to choose the higher gig graphics.


good luck!
