ARES commander 2015 has very useful feature Mouse Gestures which is making this software different in 2D category. You can map up to eight commands to mouse gestures from the Mouse Gestures dialog box.

It’s very simple to use this: You can use mouse gestures by right-dragging in the graphics area to invoke a pre assigned tools. You will see mouse gesture on screen. You can use a mouse gesture as a shortcut to execute a command quickly, similar to a keyboard shortcut. This increases you working speed.

Now notice, one command is in white shade that is in selection, means when you move the mouse over that white area, that command will be executed.

You can enable or disable mouse gestures, and set the number of mouse gestures that appear in the mouse gestures.

You have two ways to open the Mouse Gestures dialog box:

  • Command: Gesture
  • Menu: Tools > Mouse Gestures
