    hello,

    i'm looking for a tiny software that would let me associate a keyboard shortcut to a mouse button.

    I used to do that in Windows with AutoHotKey and all I find on Mac OS X are complex applications.

    To be more specific i just want to generate a Apple+T shortcut to open up a new tab when pressing the fourth button of my Microsoft Arc mouse. There were no software that came with it, unlike with my Logitech mouse so do you have any recommendation ? Can Automator take charge of this ?

    Thank you very much

    USB Overdrive

    In a round about way you can do this with USB Overdrive

    You can map the mouse button to an AppleScript then have the AppleScript simulate the keypress.
