Hey all, just got my logitech G700 in the mail today. Love it.
However, I'm having some problems assigning shift+ and alt+ to the G5 and G6 keys.
My goal is this: make it so I can press a G key on the mouse to activate the shift or alt key so I can do shift+1 or alt+1 on the mouse instead of presisng shift on the keyboard. Does that make sense? Essentially, I want shift and alt as shortcuts on my mouse so I can just press 1,2,3, etc on the keyboard and not shift/alt.
Any help? I've tried macro assignments and keystrokes in Setpoint. Thanks.
Let me clarify some. In game, I have...
action bar 1 set to: 1,2,3,4,5, etc
I have action bar 2 set to: shift+1, shift+2, shift+3, etc
I have action bar 3 set to: alt+1, alt+2, alt+3, etc
I want to be able to do, for action bar 2: G5+1, G5+2, G6+3, etc
For action bar 3: G6+1, G6+2, G6+3, etc
How do I do this? In the game, keybindings get set to one button only such as G6 or G5, actually, only those two bind but that isnt my problem now.
In game I can't bind G5+1, only G5.
In Setpoint (most current) I can set Shift+ and alt+
Thanks for the help.

Goodness these forums are almost useless. Needs more activity
Ok, I've found the problem. Setpoint 6.20 will NOT switch profiles even when I manually change profiles. Saving profiles onto mouse does not work either. To get around this I have to manually change the button layout of the "general" profile every time. VERY annoying.

I just bought one of these a couple of days ago. I haven't tried to do what you're doing, but I know you can set up the mouse to enter the gaming mode whenever you open a specific program (eg. Rift). You should be able to find the setting in Setpoint. I'll post again if I can figure out how to do what you want with the shift and alt.. If you figure it out, please let me know.

OK, I tried what you suggested (i.e. setting up one button for Shift and another for Alt) and I was able to get it to work in game without any problems. Sounds like, as you said , all you need to do is get the mouse to go into gaming mode ("Profile Manager of Setpoint is what you want). ALternatively you could just set up the default "general" setting for Rift.
