Hi again.. :) Didn't know whether to put this in hardware or software.. Hmm.

I have a 3 button Wizard Developments mouse that used to work with all 3 buttons back in the day.. But TBH I can't remember what I used to use the middle button for! Now, decades later, the right mouse button is temperamental.. Is there some way to remap the middle button to be a second right mouse button?

I tried using a tool from Aminet called MButton but I can't for the life of me understand its documentation, haha. I know, that's dumb.. Maybe there's a more logical, modern way to do things?

I'm running 3.1.4 on an A1200..

That's a pretty cool looking mouse. I imagine only a scant few programs even supported such a thing, but I'd imagine something like Lightwave would be a possible contender.

Usually button mapping is handled at the specific software level, so you seem to be on the right track. If it were my mouse, though, I'd probably remove the shell and see if swapping the microswitches is even a remote possibility. That would get the whole thing back into shape if successful.
