# How can I select edge loops with Magic Mouse on a Mac?

I’m on an iMac with a Magic Mouse (no scroll wheel or RMB). I use RMB selection, via ⌘ command LMB. I have enabled Emulate 3 Button Mouse.

I'm trying to figure out how to select edge loops. The usual method is Alt LMB, so for me that would be Alt ⌘ Command LMB, but that does nothing.

I tried adding this preference (and tried all the mouse action types: Any, Press, etc.), but still nothing.

How can I select edge loops with Alt ⌘ Command LMB?

• Blender is designed to work with a mouse with left, right and a middle (scroll) button . While it is possible to work around it it IMHO is a lot easier to get a cheap 3 button mouse and actually enjoy working on Blender the way it was desined to be used... – cegaton Aug 11 '15 at 4:10
• here are some little helpers for the magic mouse, but totally agree with @cegaton – Dan Apr 14 '16 at 11:31
• @cegaton I tried using a 3-button mouse, but it's hard to use with my physical disability. Would be much easier from an a11y perspective if I could figure out how to compensate using Alt Command LMB. – Aubrie Jul 2 '16 at 23:58

Figured it out! Whoo hoo. Turns out this is what I had to do:

1. Select an edge (using CommandLMB)
It seems that Alt LMB emulates the Middle Mouse Button. Not only that, mesh.loop_multi_select was the input I wanted, not mesh.loop_select, as I'd originally thought.
