One of the hardest things about working on a laptop is the fact that there isn't always a mouse handy. This is especially true of your a digital content creative in need of a middle click. While having force feedback on a trackpad is kind of nice, the configurator that Apple provides is lacking if you need to customise your finger swiping
Thankfully though, BetterTouchTool is available for mac users to help alleviate this problem. It is winningly free and very easy to setup, and in seconds that elusive middle click action can be yours either as a global or app specific gesture.
The configurations can also be mapped to mice, which is great news as one of our favourite mice, the Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse does not have dedicated drivers for the mac, a issue which BetterTouchTool sorted by enabling the middle click and adjusting the scrolling speed.
There are a range of other options available such as window snapping, customisable keyboard shortcuts, which can make your mac behave much more to your taste. We have been using it or a week with nothing but a smile on our face, and we heartily recommend BetterTouchTool!
