Microsoft Mouse

By wesley.chin ·
A user has gotten a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000. This person works with AutoCAD frequently, and he says that there is a pan feature that he is missing. According to him, he was able to press the scroll wheel in AutoCAD and then be able to move around in the AutoCAD window.

Is this something that this mouse does not allow?

He was using one of the 5 programmable functions before. Or the 4-way scrolling?
Here is a link to the product info.

I doubt this question is still an issue, but for the benefit of others with the same problem the answer could lie in an AutoCAD setting called 'mbuttonpan'. Setting it to '1' allows panning when the scroll wheel is pressed. Setting it to '0' allows the object snap (OSNAP) menu to be displayed on the screen by default. If this does not work we have some related VBA and AutoLISP macros that might help.

That's a zombie update. But it's your own question, that's OK!

Did you just need to install the correct drivers for the mouse?
