Can I assign the Escape key to a mouse button?

Hello,

As a former AutoCAD user, I like being able to use the Escape key to end the current command. I already know how to allow this in Workspace>Preferences>Input.

I have also played around a bit with button assignments and can see how that works.

What I cannot see, however, is a way of assigning the Escape key to a mouse button, so that I can use a side button to end a command. Does anyone know if this is possible? I'm using V8i.

Thanks for your help.

  • Does your mouse driver allow for custom defined mouse buttons? If so, you may be able to do it there.

    Mine does (Evoluent Vertical Mouse) and I have my two thumb buttons set up as ESC and ENTER. It makes AutoCAD much easier and it does help with Microstation as well. Not every mouse will allow that, but it'sa nice when they do.
