My favorite mouse until now is a Logitech Click! Optical mouse:

No worry about batteries, well suited for my hand, simple design, very robust cord and only 30$ Can.

Could always go one of those engineering/design mouses. I remember over ten yrs back they had multiple buttons. Can't remember what they were all for but. But they were win based buttons if I recall.

there is still one, it has a big ball for rotating in 3D space. 3-400 bucks. it is great for a PC running SolidWorks or ProE

I should get one, and I shouldnít have to. I hate not using a mouse that works. I cant bare to throw it out, or have it sitting their not being used. Also, I hate having to move a mouse from my tower to my laptop. I have a Powerbook 17Ē, so I donít mind spending a lot of money when necessary, but in this case, it is not since every program has or should have an Edit menu.

P.S. Contour makes a nice one for those of you with umm, big hands.

The mouse I was refering to was locally designed & made & was not that much larger I suppose. But was larger than many made at that time. Well, ... as explained the menu exists. Just need to find it. Just like the buttons on the mouse. Perhaps the menu could be advanced more but that's for developments to come .. should it become a popular request. Physio .. like exercising the wrist using the mouse sometimes. Build up the strength in 'your' favoured hand.

I'm still wondering why no one patented the optical moving extended keyboard: that would be one hell of a mouse with many buttons such as : qwertyuiop^Á1245 and many others!!!

Now, please tell me if it will ever come and if not, why!!!!!!!!!

What is the big deal? I just want an answer. I have not upgraded in a while. I will start to do so again once the Edit menu is included. No sense in paying when I donít get the product I desire. I have done so in the past to help with development, but it is not going in the direction I want.

What do ya mean edit menu? like coppy paist delete and stuff? because that doesnt seem very useful in limewire because all they got is text...

hehe--good to see this annual request for the Edit menu again.

I've asked around for while too, and apparently Java doesn't offer programmers such a cross-platform option yet (don't know about Java 1.5).

So, java programmers are apparently waiting for the developers of Java to offer such functionality.

Otherwise, each platform would need to write an Edit Menu which would be separate for each platform, with all the debugging and support writing separate platform-specific code would entail.

Since the main keyboard commands (select all, copy, paste) have been implemented, it's been easy to copy results, file names, bug reports and all the other useful data.

So, thanks to the devs for doing all they can: looks like they're making good use of the Pro support.

Cough it up gfox: time to pay ;)

btw Sam: can we please have an Edit Menu? :D
(and corrections to my misunderstandings will be appreciated too)

Ummm.. You do have an Edit Menu. Right-Click or Command (or Control?) Click.

(I feel deja vu.)

well . . . I thought that was called a "contextual menu" on Macs.

An Edit Menu would appear to the right of the File menu at the top of the screen, in the standard location all Mac apps have used since as far back as I can remember.

Was I wrong about the difficulties of implementing a proper Mac edit menu?
