So, I've been working around this issue for a long time but now I really need a way to make this work properly since it's taking certain functions from my reach.

I use a magic mouse from Apple, and have both the 3 button emulation and 3D view presets corrected in User Preferences. However, when it comes to actually needing to scroll the wheel as a means for numeric selection, it simply doesn't work. For instance, after click ctrl+b (bevel) and potentially using the wheel to set the number of segments. Same thing happens with creating loopcuts for example.

I find it so strange that I couldn't find anyone referring to this problem but I'm hoping there's a quick solution out there and this is very frustating since in the case of bevelling I can't even find a keyboard alternative.

Thank you!

Instead of a mousewheel, you can use the - and + on the numpad. Hit ctrl-B, draw the bevel and hit - or + to add or substract. This also works for adding ring-cuts and to make the size of the Proportional Editing bigger/smaller. I work with Mac and use a Wacom-pen so i use this and works well. Just give it a try, hope this helps for you as well.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. However my keyboard doesn't have a numpad, I have the emulation turned on, which leaves me with no idea where the + or - end up. I tried the default + plus but it didn't work... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I believe that you then have to press fn-key and +key. Default doesn't work. $\endgroup$

go to your user preferences - input - seek and change the bind of every thing that uses wheel up or wheel down.
