Logitech products have the ability to set program specific actions for the mouse buttons

Yes they do, but it won't let me reprogram left, middle or right mouse buttons with Aspire

I purchased a Logitech gaming mouse, and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to program a macro that will click on a specific screen coordinate or otherwise choose the line tool based on a different method. How do you do this??????? If there's already a keyboard shortcut, no problem, but for a tool that doesn't have a shortcut, I can see no way to choose that tool. please please please help.

You can't without using a scripting program which is then called by the mouse macro. That can either be a 3rd party one or Logitechs own scripting/SDK system. There is more information on the Logitech site - ... 9797161532

It's often simpler to write a gadget in VCarve/Aspire and then use the built-in keyboard shortcut system to call that.

The shortcut for the last used drawing tool (in V9) is the spacebar.
