Pass the unmodified mouse button, or any arbitrary mouse button

I asked a question in the Discussions & Questions forum. Since I did not receive a reply in 4 days I am assuming that what I am trying to do is not currently possible.

I would like to be able to assign a mouse button click to that mouse button click or some other mouse button click. For example, I would like to assign Button 5 as Button 5, or Button 5 as Button 3. Why? Because if a mouse button is given an assignment in "All Apps" then it applies to all other apps in the "App List" unless that specific button is given a different assignment in a specific app group. For example, if Button 5 is set as "Page Up" in "All Apps" it will act as "Page Up" in another app unless that app has Button 5 assigned to something else. If I want Button 5 to just be Button 5 in a different app, I currently have to leave it unassigned in "All Apps" because there is currently no way to assign Button 5 as Button 5. Or perhaps I'd like Button 5 to be treated as Button 3, there seems to be no way to do that, either.

Below is part of my question from "Discussions & Questions":

In my "All Apps" group, I have Button 5 set to Command Key Down and Button 5 (mouse-up) set to Command Key Up. This allows me to use that mouse button as my keyboard Command key so I can more easily use copy, paste, and other functions in nearly every app without having to do a finger-twisting tango.

However, in one specific app (let's call it AppX), I want Button 5 to just be Button 5. I have set up a group just for that app and I can set all sorts of things which apply only to that app. However, all the settings in the "All Apps" group are applied to AppX unless I specifically assign a different function to a particular button within the "AppX" group. I can't seem to find any way to assign Button 5 to Button 5. I can assign all sorts of other things to Button 5 in the "AppX" group and they will take precedence over the Button 5 assignment in the "All Apps" group when AppX is the focus. However, just getting Button 5 to be passed as Button 5 is either not possible or I can't find the way to do it.

BTT currently doesn't have the ability to do this, but I'll add it with the next update using the predefined action "Custom Mouse Buttons & Modifiers"

Thank you very much for responding and for considering my feature request!
