Hello... can you maybe add support for more than 5 buttons?

i have an mx1000 bluetooth and it works wonders compared to the bloated and buggy setpoint....

Can you add some kind of learn feature for the extra buttons... for example i press the extra mouse button and the program detects it and lets me assign an action to it?!

Thank you.
Great software, too bad it's not more widely used (perhaps it's the name... i never would have searched for \"xmouse\")

Hi

As it says in the FAQ, it is not possible to support more than 5 buttons without driver components. XMouse is not a driver its a user program the intercepts and \"reprograms\" the button functions.

I have a MX518 and believe me, I've tried to get the 6th, 7th and 8th buttons to work, but nothing I do can see any sort of message from them. I guess its because the Logitech driver handles them specially where as the first 5 buttons are supported natively by Windows.

The reason its called XMouseButtonControl is that the 4th and 5th buttons are referred to as the X (I guess for extended) buttons. :)

Thanks and sorry I cant be more positive with this one,
Phil
