Microsoft Intellimouse wheel problem...

I have this problem using the wheel button in archicad...

with my previous logitech mx300 mouse pressing the wheel would instantly activate the "pan" feature...

with the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 it appears a lag of about one second between the wheel pressing and the activation of the "pan" feature...it is very annoying as i am used to working very fast...

please help...

Thanks. That's good to know. I only used that mouse foe one day. It's now on sale on Craig's List. I have used a Logitec Mouse for many years.

I just migrated to an Intel Mac in our office from my G5 and now my microsoft optical trackball that runs off intellimouse won't pan either. Arghhh!

Time to go shopping, I guess...

For the mac you can try Steermouse

AFAIK it will recognize trackballs also.

PS, do not use Logitech's drivers on Mac OS X they cause to many headaches.
