SteerMouse is indeed the ultimate tool for configuring mice on macOS

It looks like it didn’t take me long to get to SteerMouse.

I continued to ask questions about the Evoluent Mouse Manager and learned that there are no plans to support application-based mappings in the macOS Evoluent Mouse Manager.

Next I tried BetterTouchTool which is my tool of choise when it comes to configuring the touchpad, or an Apple mouse, or even the touchbar. While BetterTouchTool supports the idea of multiple configurations, switching between them is a manual process. What this means is there isn’t an easy way to maintain and switch configurations for multiple mice.

These attempts finally brought me to try SteerMouse. And so far it provides exactly the functionality I’ve been looking for:

  1. recognizing different mice and being able to switch configurations accordingly
  2. recognize all the extra buttons in my mice (e.g. Evoluent VerticalMouse, Anker vertical mouse, Logitech M705, and Logitech MX Performance)
  3. ability to configure different behaviors for the mouse buttons based on the active application.

Based on my initial experience, SteerMouse seems indeed to be the BetterTouchTool for mice. And I haven’t even tried yet its chording operations.
