    Hi all,
    After weeks trying to find out how to middle click on a surface pro 4 using Autocad, I finally found a solution.

    Using AutoHotkey the following script seems to work fine. At least It's working fine in my case.


    $RButton::;HoldRButtonfor400ms to hold MButton down.
    KeyWait,RButton, T0.4;Ajust time as needed.
    if errorlevel
    { send {MButtonDown}
    KeyWait,RButton
    send {MButtonUp}
    }
    else send,{RButton}
    return

    For some reason I cannot copy and paste with the right formatting, so, should you need the script, you can find it at:
    Right mouse click+hold=hold middle mouse button (REVIT PROBLEM WITH MAGIC MOUSE MIDDLE BUTTON SOLVED) - Ask for Help - AutoHotkey Community

    I am currently using with the touchpad on the latest keyboard.

    Hope this will help someone like me who likes to use autocad on the Surface, and would like to keep using the middleclick button.

    Just posting as I was unable to find a way to middleclick on a surface in this forum.

    EDIT:
    As I am a left handed it is more confortable if operated with the left click, so I modified the script just changing the word RButton to LButton.
    It works even better as I can hold the left click with the left hand while panning with the right hand.
    Seems confortable to me :)




    Cheers

    Marco
