Q - question

Assigning CAD commands to a 6-button mouse.

A - answer If you have a mouse with multiple buttons you can assign them to AutoCAD (or Revit, Inventor, etc.) commands.

In AutoCAD, you can use the AUX menu section to define 4 buttons (the pick button is fixed) - see the AUX1-AUX4 items.

For more buttons (6,7,8...) and other CAD applications use either a special driver or map the additional buttons to accelerator keys in the mouse driver (e.g. Ctrl+F11) and then, in your CAD application, define/assign this accelerator key to a CAD command (typically in a Customize dialog/command).
