How It Works

your fingers to scroll.

While open, switch between
horizontal/vertical scrolling by
lifting a finger to reorient.

Release or click to select. Boom.

Why Thimble?

As creative designers, we spend entire days working in great apps like Photoshop, Sketch and SketchUp... but often find them tedious, especially with a trackpad:

  • Mousing across large screens to select menu items takes time, and gets fatiguing in long sessions.
  • Mousing across the smaller screens means cluttering your screen with menus.
  • Memorizing keyboard shortcuts is hard, and they're easy to forget.
  • Shortcuts for similar features aren't consistent across design apps.

Thimble makes selecting app buttons and menu items better: Just rest your thumb on the trackpad, and scroll to quickly open app buttons & menu items. Thimble's gesture interface can even be customized for the commands you use most often.

And! Thimble remembers your recent actions, making repetitive design steps much faster.
