I find it impossible to use a trackpad with SketchUp! The one thing I don't like is the default pan/orbit tool on the mouse though. It's backwards from every other software I use. Orbit is middle mouse button by default, while pan is shift-middle button. Every other software I use, save the oddities of Adobe software, make pan the middle mouse button, whether in 2D or 3D. I fixed this along with the pasting behavior (to paste in place from regular ol' paste), and added a shortcut to hide all other geometry outside of a component (I used the H key). I just wish all other software (I'm looking at you, REVIT) used the same spacebar shortcut to get to a select/pointer tool.
