|Summary||0008926: MIDI learn without middle mouse button (using a trackball)|
Is there a way to assign a different mouse button for mapping a parameter to a MIDI controller?
As Ardour awaits a middle mouse click on a parameter, to map it to a MIDI controller and I use a trackball ("Kensington Orbit"), that has no middle mouse button, it would absolutely make sense to be able to specify other buttons for MIDI mapping. I know, that many people use trackballs in studios, as they are more practical in terms of space requirement on a mixing desk. However, the Kensington Orbit has buttons for left click, right click and a scroll wheel (non-clickable). The ball is also non-clickable.
The most practical way would be a right click (on any parameter), while pressing the left "ALT" key on the keyboard, as this combination has no particular function in this context.
Have I overlooked an option or is this really not a feature? If the latter is true, please, add this. :))
I don't want to produce e-waste, by just buying a three-button mouse. As the trackball is fully working.
It is also more ergonomical and less likely to cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
Thank you in advance. Namaste.
|Steps To Reproduce||Using a two-button mouse or trackball and trying to use the third button. :D|
