  • An Open Source Mouse and Trackpad Utility for Mac
    I’m eager to try this out, but you might also want to check out Steermouse[1], which is a utility it took me years longer to discover than it should have. I’m not sure how it stacks up to this open source project, but it’s definitely been worth the license cost to me over the years. [1] - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • [Rant] My Search for the One Mouse to rule them all - on Mac
    There are 3rd party apps like Steer Mouse that let you re-assign buttons/shortcuts on a Mac, but I haven’t used them in a long while, so can’t really speak to compatibility. Source: 11 months ago
  • Tip for mx mouse side buttons
    Will I use steermouse to configure the mouse. But didn’t put any specific configuration for arc. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Scrolling on macOS sucks with third-party mice, but I just found a game-changer
    Use SteerMouse instead, same developer. Indispensable, if only for the snap-to-default button feature. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Good Bluetooth gaming mouse for macOS?
    Also, whatever you decide on, I recommend skipping manufacturer software and using SteerMouse instead to adjust sensitivity, acceleration and button mappings. Source: about 1 year ago
  • MX Master terribly Issues on Macbook Pro M2
    My advice is to uninstall options+ and instead use a third party software such as BetterMouse ($5, 7 day free trial) / SteerMouse ($20, 30 day free trial) / LinearMouse (free). The lag is happening because of Options+, not the mouse itself. Unfortunately this has been a long-standing issue with Logitech's software. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Adjusting DPI on a Macbook?
    Steermouse” is a paid app (30 day free trial), but it’s easily the best thing I’ve found for customising mouse and trackball behaviour on MacOS; you can customise cursor speed, acceleration, scrolling behaviour, and all the rest. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Why do people hate the magic mouse?
    But with proper 3rd party software, you can make horizontal scrolling with any mouse. I'm using SteerMouse for that. You can use a secondary (or any other additional) mouse button as a modifier button for a scroll wheel. So it works like this:. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Third-party software for Logitech MX Master 3S Mac mouse?
    I use it’s solid and regularly updated. No issues at all and it’s vastly superior to Logitech’s software. Source: about 1 year ago
  • I want the middle click on my mouse to bring up the context menu (Basically I want what the right-click on Windows does) Is anyone able to tell me how to do this? I am amazed at how hard I have found trying to find an answer to this ! Thank you.
    What mouse are you using? - SteerMouse is a nice app that can remap buttons. - Smooze I think also had some options for buttons. Source: over 1 year ago
  • TIL macOS Ventura still has Mighty Mouse settings, despite the mouse not being used by anyone now.
    They work even better with Steermouse System Preference. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Magic Mouse Software?
    Maybe steermouse? John Siracusa was touting it for this purpose on this week’s episode of Accidental Tech Podcast. Source: over 1 year ago
  • KensingtonWorks ruined my Mac
    Just use SteerMouse. It supports almost all devices (mice, headsets, trackballs, etc) and most likely provides all functionality that all manufacturer specific software provides. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Slimblade pro Customization Questions
    As for software, I had been using Steermouse even prior to purchasing the Slimblade Pro and I really love the customizability of it. It allows many more options for reprogramming buttons, fine-tuning scrolling and cursor movement/acceleration, and chording compared to what I was able to do with KensingtonWorks. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Does anyone here use Logitech and have problems with LogiOptions+? It regularly accumulates memory until it crashes and I have to force quit. (M1Pro with Ventura 13.0.1) Probably a Logitech issue but I wanted to cross-post here.
    SteerMouse is the best out there. Test the trial, then buy the full version and forget about any issues. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ghub Broken after Ventura Update
    If you don't mind a paid fix, SteerMouse is an excellent alternative to Ghub and other Logitech software. Source: over 1 year ago
  • How to scroll on MacOS with the Ploopy Nano using Steermouse (paid app), no firmware edits or setting LED state needed
    It requires Steermouse (free trial available), which is paid software, but well worth the cost in my opinion, if you’re the kind of nerd who has multiple mice and/or trackballs you’d like to configure. I have no association with the developer, it’s just great software. Better than any of the manufacturer-provided mouse or trackball drivers I’ve used. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Anyone else experiencing conflicts between OS mouse settings and Kensington Works?
    I've recently tried LinearMouse and so far it is good. I've also been using MOS, Scroll Reverser and Karabiner for a few years now. I've heard good things about SteerMouse but I have not used it, but you should try it if you like to have one software to fully configure your pointing devices. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Full time AutoCAD operator and I hate my mouse - HELP! I am looking for a finger operated trackball and do a lot of zooming, scrolling, and click/dragging. Never used a trackball before.
    The scroll-wheel is fine but not as good as two-finger scrolling on a Magic Trackpad to be honest. I'm on a Mac, so I've gotten pretty used to smooth scrolling. To make up for it I bought an app called SteerMouse, which is very much worth the $20. It has a scroll mode that can be activated by whichever button(s) you want, and lets you use the trackball itself to scroll around. You can also assign button "chords"... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Bluetooth mouse with high polling rate
    People have found so many ways to disable acceleration on OS X. You can try UnnaturalScrollWheels and just select disable mouse acceleration. Also Steermouse is an option. And finally a paid option CursorSense. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Logi makes decent hardware. In fact, I've generally found the hardware to be quite good. Too bad the (Mac) software is so terrible.
    Enter SteerMouse. The interface is a little old-timey but VERY functional. And I get full, STABLE, use of my Logi devices. Smooth action, predictable clicks. SteerMouse has a boatload of available settings, most of which go far beyond what Options provided (not to mention Apple). Source: almost 2 years ago
