PowerClicks - Control Panel that uses the keyboard to replace your mouse button
Version: 1.2The mouse button key is useful if you have to use your PowerBook in a very silent environment, where even a trackball click is too loud; since the keyboard is a lot more quiet than the trackball button, you'll be able to use your trackball while other people are reading or even sleeping. You may also use this option to temporarily replace a broken mouse button on any Macintosh.
Operating System: Mac OS X
The button-toggle key is useful if you want to use your PowerBook trackball with only one hand. I find it hard to move the ball while keeping the button down, and I often release the trackball button before the dragging is over. This can be very annoying when you are selecting a command from a menu (releasing the button makes your fingers move so the cursor slips away). Using the button-toggle key should make your life a lot easier: strike the key once and move the cursor where it should be, then take your whole hand away from the trackball and strike the key again.
The graphical effects lets you see where both real and virtual mouse clicks occur.
Many extensions and control panels create virtual mouse clicks to gain control over the environment - take a look at Now Utilities' Super Boomerang for a good example.
Here are some key features of "PowerClicks":
· it can make a key combination act just like the mouse button;
· it can make another key combination toggle the mouse button on and off;
· it can assign graphical effects to mouse clicks.
