    Hello boys and girls!

    Right i was lucky enought to get a new Logitec MX1000 mouse for xmas which is awesome. Only problem is that i cant get it set up like i want it to be how can i specify custom commands for instance assign ctrl + space to a button, also stuff like command + tab?

    Sure it can be done but not sure how and if i need something other than OverDrive.

    Overdrive is all there is unless the Logitech Control center is compatible with your mouse (It isn't with the Mx518 which I have)

    There's a program called USB Overdrive that maps out individual inputs for any mouse. I've used this program with my MX1000 for about 3 months, works like a charm.

    It's shareware, but nothing is left out, and there's no time limit.

    Check it out :mac:

    edit: Just started thinking that maybe this is what you were referring to by saying "OverDrive"...if so, to answer your question, Yes, this program can map out keyboard shortcuts to mouse keys.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Basically, open up the pref pane for USB OverDriveX and set the "device" to "mouse".

    Select the button you'd like to customize.
    On the far right drop down menu select "keystroke".
    For the "ctrl-space" that you want for the button, simply select the "ctrl" modifier and find the "space" in the keystroke pull down menu.

    That should do it, I can't remember if you have to logout for the changes to take place, but probably not. :mac:

    edit: You posted right before me on that^ post. haha

    For "Cmd+Tab" just set the modifier key to Command and the objective key to Tab. For Expose just set one of your buttons to F9 or F11.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
