    the middle one, which I had programmed to be the right mouse click.

    Not happy. Plus, the font sucks. Why don't they give the OPTION of changing the system fonts? That type of change smacks of idiotic Microsoft change for the sake of change BS.

    The previous font worked fine.

    Apple, fix the mouse button first.

    Been thru OS changes since Win 3.0. Getting burnt out.

    Yep, my Evoluent Vertical Mouse buttons lost their functionality, with the exception of Button 1 (left click). I tried re-installing the Evoluent software, but still no joy. I sent an email to Evoluent support but haven't received a response.

    Just received this from Evoluent:

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Evoluent support. I would be happy to help you with any questions you may have.

    Our current Mac software is not working in OSX 10.11. We don't have an ETA on when an update to our software will be available.

    In the meantime, you can either use a 3rd party program to change the buttons, or you can disable System Integrety Protection.

    Shareware drivers that will allow programming the buttons are available at:
    www.usboverdrive.com (beg ware, full features without paying)
    www.boastr.de/
    www.plentycom.jp/en/steermouse
    www.orderedbytes.com/controllermate and
    (Evoluent has no business relationship with these vendors.)

    For information on disabling System Integrety Protection, see this article on MacWorld.com:

    Thank you,

    Bradley

    I guess I'll try some of the alternatives. "Fishrrman", thanks for the suggestion.

    USB Overdrive works and now I've got my Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4 functions working again.
