    My setup:

    Logitech G700 Mouse



    ** Note - The mouse does not have that many buttons, but the mouse supports macros, and the switching of profiles by application detection (i.e., I have a profile for each AutoCAD, Microstation, etc.).


    ... Logitech G510 keyboard (backlit keys)



    ... And Logitech G13 (backlit keys)



    ** Edit - Guess I should add that we're not allowed to buy our own hardware, and bring in per IT policy, so everything mentioned above is purchased by my employer.

    Mouse is a Razer Naga (17 programmable buttons) and the keyboard is an ancient Gateway2000 Anykey (fully programmable with additional 12 F* keys) and yes, I have the F* keys on the left programmed as a few osnaps, my layerisolatetoggle command, a popup list of surface editing tools and a popup list of the point tools in civil 3d (snap to point number, etc.).
    The mouse is also programmed for an assortment of frequently used commands. Generally speaking, minus the random command or a one letter alias, I just use the additional set of F* keys, the number keys across the top and the mouse buttons - no onscreen buttons or pulldowns except undo, redo and and my viewport edit/creation toolbar - which i rarely use since MV (mview) creates a viewport and and they added VPCLIP to the right-click menu when selecting viewports.

    That would not go over well, I've been carrying around and using the same keyboard since my first cad job in 2000 and before that it was my gaming keyboard - I've had this thing a long time.

    It was a little tough to get used to (bit overwhelming - almost took it back) but now that I've gotten used to it, I love it and have all the thumb buttons programmed.

    Just curious if I'm the only one with this problem, but no matter what mouse I use, my pinkie just sticks out to the side... and hurts ALL THE TIME! Should I just start taping it up when I draft? Or am I going to have to learn to use one of those cyborg mice from ^up there?
