    Default Mouse Keyboard combo

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a wireless mouse keyboard combo just for using with a cad program. The full size board I'm using is a bit bulky.

    I think you are using the wrong terminology. Search on "wireless keyboard with trackball".

    You can also get mice with lots of buttons available at Amazon.

    I tried using a trackball but it just didnt' feel natural to me. I know a lot of people like using them but I never could use them with any real accuracy as far as snapping to a end of line, mid point, intersection stuff like that. The only snap I didn't have to try to roll to 3 or 4 times was a center point. I guess I just can't relate the track ball to the position of the cursor on the screen.

    Agreed. Those are popular at work but they just don't seem to be as fast nor as precise as the mouse at least not to me.
    Please do not PM me with CAD questions. Post your question on the forum. Our users are the best out there and you'll get the best possible answer to your question.

    Maybe that's why I sucked at centipede.

    how many buttons are you looking for?
    my mouse has 12 on the side, 2 extra on the top and the scroll wheel has left and right as well.
    8 key maps, each with multiple profiles.
    it is not wireless, but there are some out there.
