ack!  I meant...

shift-click-and-drag to rotate and move the objects

Warren,

This could be really useful for me too.  On my MacBook Pro,
when I "ctrl-middle-click-and-drag" (with a 3-button mouse),
the "drag second" buttons disappear, as if I had clicked the "done"
button.

Did I miss something?
