I am curious to see if anyone managed to figure this out. As the title says, I am trying to figure out how I can have the side buttons behave EXACTLY like pressing keys on the keyboard.
For example, I tied press the '4' key on my keyboard. It does this successfully, but with one caveat, it does a press-and-release even if I am still holding the side button on the mouse. If I were to do this on the keyboard, it would do a press-and-hold until I let go of the key.
Recording a macro wouldn't work in this situation because the time during which the key is pressed is not always the same length.
