Bluetooth mouse for ProE?


Bluetooth mouse for ProE?

I have a Microsoft Presenter mouse for my laptop, and the middle mouse button behavior in ProE is driving me up the wall. Plus the 4th and 5th buttons are inconveniently placed for Shift-MMB and Ctrl-MMB actions.

I'm looking for suggestions of a nice right-handed Bluetooth mouse for ProE use.

Standard size rather than mini-mouse

We found that we had to disable the Microsoft intellimouse software, and
tell Windows XP that we had a basic mouse with scroll wheel. The mouse
worked as expected after this change.

Hi David,
Our experience is that we could not find a full sized Bluetooth mouse other
than the Microsoft and we did not want to use that due to its spongy Scroll
wheel action.

We tried the Targa Bluetooth mouse as halfway between small and normal mice
but some stopped using it due to hesitation and battery discharge needing a
connection cable to recharge.

The Logitech V470 is an OK smaller sized Bluetooth mouse. My wife uses one
for her Macbook.

Seems very strange that firms such as Logitech make a wide range of full
sized wireless mice but do not then offer the same mice with Bluetooth.

Have not tried the latest Apple Bluetooth mouse with the touch sensitive
surface rather than a scroll wheel and if this could work with ProE. It has
a very flat form factor which seems kind on the hand in relation to RSI or
Oos problems.

Separately thanks for your presentation on admidistering ProE at the 2010
User conference
