trackpoint question

Those that use it....do you use your index finger for the trackpoint and thumb for the buttons?

I am trying to use it more but I am very much an external mouse or trackpad person so I want to use it the most efficient way possible.
Thanks

Yeap thats what I do. Been using the trackpoint for ages and even beating people in Counterstrike with it. Granted not very good ones, but.. >;)

Index and thumb and I'm ambidextrous with the TrackPoint. Operating two at a time is no problem.

I usually use the left thumb for the left click

so I have done this a bit too. I’m thinking it feels better for me. I have to keep trying

Trackpoint rocks. I got a set and use the concave one.

One thing I do, not sure how unusual it is, but I use my "other" hand. I'm a leftie and mouse with my left hand. But I use the Trackpoint with my right index finger on the point and thumb for buttons. Seems like I have better control.

I’m a leftie but can’t use a mouse or track point with my left hand. It breaks my brain. My left hand is for wasd because gaming. Lol.
