  1. while browsing the interwebs the other day i came across a few pages talking about using gaming keyboards and mice in conjunction with autocad. so i did a little bit of reading/research (things are slow at work) and found out it wasn't to difficult to do, and a new mouse was like $80. i thought why not give it a try. i took to amazon to get the logitech G600 for $49 w/prime shipping, i received it monday and tuesday i was off and running. the most difficult thing about it was choosing what commands to program on the thumb keys. it has the normal two mouse buttons and scroll wheel up, down, left and right, with third mouse button as a "shift key" for the 12 thumb buttons to make 24 individual keys, plus two other buttons with the scroll wheel that i believe select between profiles you can set. (haven't dove completely into it) after working with it for the better part of tuesday, this morning wednesday i reconfigured some commands on the thumb pad and printed out a cheat sheet to memorize. some of the commands like copy/past/cut work outside of Autocad which is a plus. it has helped in some areas of accuracy typing commands like move between 2 points (i mistype a lot) but slowed other processes down just because its new and still getting to the nuances of operation. i believe it will become second nature as long as i don't change the commands often as i feel which ones fit best or needed more. anyways i thought i would just throw this out there maybe it's something you would like to try or have some experience with or didn't know you could use. let me know if there is something else out there you have tried to work with. links: http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2015/05/why-i-started-using-gaming-peripherals-to-get-real-work-done/ http://blog.grabcad.com/blog/2010/08/28/best-for-cad-work-mouse-trackball-3d-device/ https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-G600-Gaming-Mouse-Black/dp/B0086UK7IQ/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486577758&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=logitehc+g600
