Mouse Button Options
SoftPlan Version:
2014 Plus

My staff came to me with a question, that I can't answer: Is their a way to change the default mouse button options? Keyboard Shortcuts, no problem, can't seem to find mouse options? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look at System Options⇒Keyboard Shortcuts. Select the Common tab. You will find Left Mouse Button and Right Mouse Button. If you have other buttons on your mouse that you want to change take a look at the mouse driver for your mouse. I use an Evoluent mouse and it allows me to map the buttons to be whatever I want on a per program basis. The Microsoft mouse I used previously had the same ability.

If you use a Logitech Mouse download the Logitech Setpoint Software.  There is an option where you can add Softplan 

so you can program your mouse's buttons how you like.  I have several buttons programmed for specific functions. The

one I use the most is the button I programmed for "Save".  It makes saving the drawing regularly just a bimp of one of the

side buttons on my mouse.

That was bump not bimp as I typed in the previous post.  


Too bad I can't program automatic spelling correction into the mouse ;-)

Where is the option to relocate the pan button (default mouse scroll button)?


EDIT: I used aftermarket software like suggested, it works well, thanks. I just figured SoftPlan would have the option.
