SOme mice have more buttons and more gestures that a standard 2 button mouse.
There is some support for th addition middle button in scrolling, but outside
that there seems to be little or no support for the additional buttons
I would like to associate the middle button click with additional actions,
I have a 5 button mouse, and the 2 addional buttons are used in windows
applications typically as as forward/back pair
I cannot associate the clicks on the additional buttons to the back/forward
actions in NB
I believe that this should be configurable in a similar manner to configure
the keyboard shortcuts
Netbeans *does* support mouse related shortcuts (CTRL+click = go to declaration...) but these shortcuts are not supported by the keymap editor.
they keymap editor is ... a *keymap* editor ;) and is designed as such. Sadly the SPI towards individual components (ie editor, navigator, explorer, menu) does not support the notion of mouse gestures, it's designed around keystrokes, sadly.
I agree that it could be generalized into a "shortcut editor", accepting even mouse clicks/gestures or even potentially some weird gestures if a tablet/touchpad is used.
Not a task for 8.0

Screenshot of Options -> Keymap screen
I noticed this menu when your choose 'Edit...' or 'Add alternative'
maybe it would be an easier solution to add mouse4 and mouse5 (back and forward mouse buttons) to this screen ?
