    Cursor jumping and skipping around MacOS

    My cursor just jumps around after mid-movement like every 10s. It isn't much, but say on a 13" screen, if I move fast, it can jump 5cm. I use a Mac Mini M1 and Logitech G Pro wireless & MagicMouse (they both have the same issue). I disabled the mouse sharing with my iPad, just in case that...

    Mouse: How can I middle click without scrolling?

    I am using a Logitech MX Master 3 and just started learning Blender. In Blender you use middle-click a lot. Unfortunately, the scroll-wheel (which is also the middle button) is super sensitive and every time I middle click I also scroll (zoom) a little, which is incredibly annoying. Is there...

    Setting up the Studio Kinda Sucks (Updated)

    Today was supposed to be fun, and interesting. Instead it was disappointing and frustrating. I “tore down” my 27” iMac setup. Reran all the needed wires, cleaned, etc. Then I set the Studio in place, then the monitor. Powered it on, and let it get through those first boots. Then I plugged in...
