i thought i had a pretty decent mouse (logitech mx revolution) and i'm using the modified uberOptions for it - but it doesn't appear to do on the fly (toggling) of mouse speed or acceleration.

i'd really like to be able to press a hotkey (or mouse button that i'll associate with the hotkey) to toggle the speed of the mouse - but only whilst the hotkey is pressed (or maybe press the hotkey again to return to the alternate speed).

as usual, i've had a quick scan through the autohotkey forums and i can't decide if this is something near impossible or quite trivial. i know the cursor can be made to move by autohotkey - but toggling the systems mouse speed/acceleration - well, i really don't know.

anyone up for this snack challenge.

thanks.

(mouser has persuaded me that an accelerated cursor is a good idea to travel across multi-screen setups - but i need the non accelerated/slow cursor movement for design work, i.e. two toggling cursor speeds would be help me).

Maybe my MAT (Mouse Acceleration Toggle) program will work for you?

yes, that is perfect. i've not tried it with my mouse buttons to activate it (toggle) yet but it looks like it will do it.

it also does more than i could ever have hoped for - with the extra speed control. that opens up so many more levels or control. brilliant.

(i'll let mouser know - he might like this on his system too.)

Sweet.  =]  I'm glad it'll work for you.

As an aside, you'd be shocked at how little code there is in this app.
