Hi Folks,

We are currently working on making lively ready for mobile devices. As lively makes excessive use of the right mouse button, we need a way to emulate it. We would like to hear your opinions on how to do it. Here are our thoughts so far:

Double Tap:
Double tap is fast and difficult to trigger accidentally. It can be confused with zooming in browser context, though.

Touch and hold:
Touch and hold is somehow known to mobile users, as it's used by different systems, but it can be triggered accidentally when dragging.

Not discoverable in any way, but probably not confusable with anything else.

So what do you think?
