I have an intellimouse optical with the intellimouse software driver installed. My wheel button is set to "autoscroll" and it works perfectly. By the way, I have no option to set it to "middle button" or anything like that.
Well, we discovered(as was mentioned)that setting to middle worksbut the pressure required for this particular mouseto do the spin operation(I have a pulled tendon)makes it a likely move to go back to a regular chorded optical mouse.
I have used a number of Logitech wireless mice, all with great success. I have also trieda Microsoft wireless mouse with the scroll wheel that also tips right and left. I was never able to configure that Microsoft mouse successfully. That funky middle scroll / pan wheel never worked inside of Pro. It was great everywhere else in Windows, though.
Does anyone else notice their mouse's motion / sensitivity is lowered inside of Pro? Specific versions include WF1 and WF2.
<DIV>Here is the fix foryour mouse settings, youneed to load the MouseWare drivers instead of using the default ones provided by Windows. And your mouse wheel needs to be set to 'autoscroll' , I always check the 'Use MS Office Compatible Scroll Only' button. </DIV>
<DIV>You also commented about the acceleration not working within Pro/E, this isa general behavior of OpenGL apps. Try the Advanced Settings Utility from Logitech. Inherantly, the mouse accelerators are ignored in OpenGL apps because "Gamers" don't want the acceleration in thier games. This utility lets you turn this acceleration on.</DIV>
Dose a fix exist for the new Microsoft micewhere the scroll wheeltips side to side. In WF 1 & 2 it will dump you out of spin mode if you are holding down the middle button and tip just a little bit to either side. I even tried to turn down the sensitive it dose nothing a all.
If not the old style mice will be in short supply soon.
