Would it be possible to support for the Anker Vertical Mouse?


I'm about to buy an Anker Vertical Mouse, which often gets good reviews against the Logitech alternative that costs four times as much!

However, there are two buttons on the Anker which aren't natively supported in macOS and I wondered if BetterTouch might be able to help? They aren't mission-critical (forward & backward) but it would be cool to be able to use them as they exist.

There's a youtube on the Anker mouse here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AfAmKg3CP4 and product detail: https://tinyurl.com/yak3whrj



+1. I have been using BTT with Anker for a couple of years and suddenly it stopped working. I have upgraded recently to Catalina and I also have Karabiner Elements. I double checked i had disabled the mouse in Karabiner. BTT can no longer detect the forward and back button clicks. I tried the latest version of BTT since i had an older license and it still did not work.

An update. It might have been an issue with my old anker mouse. I got a new one and its working with btt again.

Would you be able to explain the steps you used to get the forward/back buttons working on your Anker please? Mine just arrived and I'm trying out BTT.

ATM when I press either of the "side buttons" on the mouse (the forward & back buttons) my Mac goes into "scroll mode" so I can move windows up & down by moving the mouse itself & not using the wheel.



Actually don't worry, seems to be working now!

My focus on using the side buttons or forward & back hidden the fact that I don't actually use those shortcuts very much. However, I now have BTT serving as zoom in & zoom out inside Sketch which is fantastic!

Ironically I bought this mouse for ther ergonomics not the side buttons! It's the Anker AK-UBA 2.4G if anyone is wondering whether BTT works with it.


Came here to ask if any other brand of vertical mouse is supported. - I'm looking at the J-Tech. I use the "tap" functions on the Magic Mouse for fast data entry functions. But it doesn't look like there are many features under "normal mouse". Any thoughts?
