Middle click on laptops – for EAGLE

A quick trick in EAGLE is to middle-click while moving a part to mirror it, essentially putting the part from top layer to bottom layer in board view, or mirror a bottom layer part to top layer.

A friend asked me how to middle click on a laptop. Here is an answer I found on my laptop. Hope it helps you too.

Find mouse property either from control panel or bottom right corner of your screen.

  1. Click Device Setting ( the red symbol is Synaptics touch pad)
  2. Click Settings
  3. Select Tapping and expand it
  4. Select Tap Zone and expand it
  5. Select one of the zones you desire
  6. On the right side, select middle click.
  7. Click OK. You have just assigned the bottom left corner of your touch pad as middle click button. Tap it and it mirrors your parts.
