I have recently purchased a thinkpad bluetooth mouse. Although it works fine with most of software I cannot
use it suficiently enough with Solidworks 2010.
zoom in/out is not possible when scrolling the wheel
middle button click does not work for part/assembly rotation
An MS wirelless mouse 5000 and a logitech one were working fine by default without changing any settings.
(logitech's software has been removed)
I tried changing settings through Lenovo mouse suite but didn't work.
I also tried to find some kind of mouse-setup in solidworks but no luck so far.
Any help or suggestions?

Could you try the following for me,
1. Unpair your ThinkPad Bluetooth Mouse from the laptop/desktop
2. Uninstall the Lenovo Mouse Suite
3. Update the generic bluetooth stack of your laptop/desktop
4. Pair your ThinkPad Bluetooth Mouse from the laptop/desktop with the built-in bluetooth software of the laptop/desktop
5. Test your ThinkPad Bluetooth Mouse with SolidWorks 2010
Do take note on whether the issue remains.
The next thing I would like you to do is :
1. Go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67201.html and download the latest software
2. Install it
3. Try again with SolidWorks 2010
Record your findings and reply back.
By the way, which operating system are you using ?Is the computer/laptop of yours a Lenovo system?If Yes, what's the model type?

Same problem with the latest technology! Has anyone figured out how to fix it (or has the same issue)?
I have just purchased a brand new Lenovo Ultraslim Plus Wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard works perfectly. The mouse works great too for all programs except with Solidworks 2012 sp2 (the only version of SolidWorks that I tried it with). My laptop is a Lenovo W520.
The problem (same as sebastikar ):
zoom in/out is not possible when scrolling the wheel - REMAINS UNRESOLVED
middle button click did not work for part/assembly rotation out-of-the-box. I was able to fix that issue by playing with the mouse properties (see below)
Any help or suggestions?

I fixed my own issue (above) by uninstalling the driver that came with the mouse.
But by doing that I lost some of the fancy features of the mouse (like the 2 addtional buttons clicks you get when you push the mouse wheel to the right or to the left...oh well!

Thanks for coming back and updating us on your situation, and also for the very detailed explaination of what is going on, complete with pic of the mouse control panel. As you understand, we can't control how things work with every application, but perhaps with the information from the OP coupled with your updates we can talk to engineering and see if they have some ideas about what might be going on, and if change is possible for the driver.
