    I think that would be down to your mouse software. That's the place to start looking.

    I now use AHK (auto hot key) which allows me to assign key and mouse combinations to LW shortcuts. For instance, shift + mouse wheel up/down expands/contracts loop selections.

    Stick this into your browser and look for the threads where users have created their own AHK scripts. You maybe able to assign such combinations to your side mouse button:

    Oooooo, now I'll have to check AHK out.

    All I want is "wheel-zoom", that should be easy, no?

    I now have a setup (big thanks to Erikals for bringing this to my attention) whereby my left hand doesn't need to move across to the right hand side of the keyboard.

    Using single, double and triple key presses assigned to my favourite hotkeys, coupled with shift and ctrl + mouse button and wheel combination, I have seen an increase in my modeling speeds.

    Example (S - single, D - double, T - triple):

    C key:
    S=Copy
    D=Rotate Snap (LWCAD)
    T=Drag Weights (LWCAD)

    V key:
    S=Paste
    D=Knife Tool (LWCAD)
    T=Knife Tool (native)

    B key:
    S=Bevel
    D=Bridge
    T=Bandsaw Pro

    D Key:
    S=Display options
    D=Cut
    T=Divide

    G key:
    S=Center Viewport
    D=BandGlue
    T=Not assigned

    T key:
    S=Move
    D=New Tranform Tool
    T=New Tweak Tool

    No.1 Key:
    S=Edit Edges
    D=Not assigned
    T=Not assigned

    No.2 Key:
    S=Align X
    D=Align Y
    T=Align Z

    No.3 Key:
    S=Quick Cuts - single
    D=Quick Cuts - double
    T=Quick Cuts - triple

    No.4 Key:
    S=Mirror X
    D=Mirror Y
    T=Mirror Z

    I also have X assigned to drop selection (saves me having to go across to the / key)

    Mouse works like this:



    I've just tried assigning the > and < keys to zoom in and out and it works perfectly in Modeler.

    Cheers,
    Ricky.

    Thanks for the overview, it just gets more and more attractive!

    I think a robust keyboard that can take a lot of pounding would be a good investment with those triple keypresses.

    I really need to unearth my Logitech G-13: I like it, when I remember to use it. I do require the cheat sheet to be visible, but that's what the bottom of the 2nd monitor is for.....

    Lol. Mini post-it notes cover the left side of my first monitor... you know, for when senility finally gets me.

    For the G13 I made a PShop template of the SHAPE of the keyboard. Then for every keyset I have one printout: Modeler, Layout, and Bioshock.
