    I was using a logitech mouse with my mac in which I could customize the tilt left/right functions to do whatever I wanted. I now have a Microsft Natural Laser 6000 mouse and it has the tilt functionality but I can't seem to customize it to do what I want; to be able to flip back and forth through spaces by tilting my scroll wheel left or right. I could do this with the logitech by setting tilt left/right to ctrl > or ctrl <.

    If I can't figure out how to do this, I'm just going to switch back to the logitech. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    I have done that already. The Intellipoint 6.3 software doesn't allow me to do what I need. It only allows me to set the standard buttons. No left/right tilt customization besides horizontal scroll speed. Pretty lame, eh?

    That is pretty annoying... not sure what you can do about that though.

    Logitech drivers allow for customization more than MS drivers do.

    I have not tried this, but...

    Back in my powerbook days, i used a utility called sidetrck to give me extra functionality. it gave me more buttons, and all the wonderful things we have today. maybe it will work for you eith an app like this?
    let us know, I am interested in those mice as well. Although, my experience with 3 Microsoft wireless mice says, their batteries last 2 weeks. my logitech ones, go like 3 months.
