I use a Logitech M570 Trackball under Windows 10. I want to simply make buttons 4 & 5 send keystrokes for a specific application. For reasons I can't fathom, the Setpoint software simply cannot do this for this application (Sierra Chart).

X-Mouse Button Control however, does it just fine. The problem is that if Setpoint is running, then XBC won't work. If I quit Setpoint then XBC works perfectly, but then I lose the features of Setpoint (like smooth scrolling in particular).

I can't for the life of me figure out what the conflict is here. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? Or a possible alternative to XBC for both remapping the 4 & 5 buttons, but also for inverting the scroll direction?

  • Yes, it is required for Smooth Scrolling to work.

I don't know why this conflict existed in the first place, but I now know how to solve it. In Setpoint, buttons 4 & 5 must be set to "Other" and then "Generic Button". Now everyone plays nicely together. Thanks to the user forum for figuring this out.
