3d connexion 3d mouse useability of zoom feature
In previous versions of Adobe Acrobat / reader you could use a 3d mouse (3dconnexion) to zoom and navigate a document. This is very helpful on larger drawing type documents where you want to move around and zoom in. I noticed that the 3d mouse does work to scroll up and down a text type document. Are there any plans to integrate zoom and pan features?
Choose View > Zoom > Pan & Zoom, or click the Pan & Zoom tool in the Select and Zoom toolbar.
Do any of the following:
1.Drag the handles of the box in the Pan & Zoom window to change the document magnification.
2.Drag the center of the box to pan across the area you want to see.
3.Click the navigation buttons to move to a different page.
4.Enter a value in the zoom text box, or click the plus or minus buttons to increase or decrease the magnification by preset levels.

Will this ever be fixed? Since upgrading from Adobe Reader to Adobe Standard, the SpaceMouse Enterprise will not control the Pan and Zoom of a 2D PDF. This functionality is CRITICAL to reviewing and marking large scale drawings while working in CAD.
I agree very much with Paul McMahon
in Adobe if you click on "fit to width scrolling" the functionality of the 3D mouse returns. I was having this issue. hope it helps
It feels like this issue has been going on for years. Some of my computers with adobe and 3dconnexion work together - others don't. it is very frustrating to not be able to pan and zoom in a .pdf with my left hand 3D mouse.

When working with large engineering prints the ability to move and zoom with a 3D mouse is a very desirable feature.
