Mouse buttons mapping

Experimenter

Is there another way to "accept" a selection other than using the middle mouse button?  I've got a bad finger and it hurts to press the mouse wheel as the middle mouse button.  I am using a 3Dconnection space ball and I'm wondering if that can be mapped.

Doesn't help directly, but 3Dconnexion has a true 3 button cadmouse now, which I really like....but I go back to the days of 3 button mice, before the wheel.

I use a 2 button SpaceNavigator from 3Dconnexion and using the 3Dconnexion Properties dialog box I set the Right button to act as the "Middle Mouse" button. So technically I'm still using the middle mouse button to accept a selection, I just defined a button on my space ball to act as the middle mouse button.
