Programmability of the Swiftpoint ProPoint

Recommended Posts

I'm a happy owner of a Swiftpoint GT and was considering getting the ProPoint for the 3rd button, but wanted to confirm the extent of its programmability. Can I set the 3rd button to run a key command? I have a Logitech MX Anywhere 2S, and I love the fact that I can individually program it to run a key command (in my use case I have it auto-open a clipboard manager) with a single click. 

I've played with the Configure tool on the GT and didn't see any kind of option and wondered if it was any different on the ProPoint. Any clarification you can provide would be great, and keep up the great work!

Unlike the GT, ProPoints software does allow you to bind custom keyboard shortcuts. 

They can't be set to the buttons directly, but there are a variety of "Tilt Gestures" which they can be assigned to.

For example tilt can be used as a modifier for both the center and rear buttons on ProPoint (Right click and middle click). So that if you tilt then click either button, your custom shortcut will activate.

The same is true for the scroll wheel, and you also have two sets of four gestures activated by tilting the mouse, holding the center or rear button, then moving the mouse left, right, up, or down.

The screenshot below shows an example of one set of gestures assigned to custom shortcuts.
