How to setup LR 4.2 to use forward/reverse mouse buttons

Dec 5, 2012 5:02 PM

I recently had to reinstall LR 4.2 due to a hard drive failure. Previously, I could cycle through my photos by using the forward or reverse buttons on the side ofmy Microsoft mouse. Now I cannot. How can I get LR to respond again? I have set the mouse to 'enable program specific settings',  but it did not help and I do not think I had to do this step in the past. Thanks.

    After further inspection of the Microsoft mouse settings in the control panel, I found that each button can be programmed to a keystroke. I just made the front side button the right arrow key and the rear button the left arrow key. It works as it should now to cycle through the images in the filmstrip and the Grid view.
