I am in the same boat, this is a great mouse but i use the scroll click heavily.
I don’t use the back/forward gesture, is there a way i can program left right swipe to mimic a center click? i have installed the software but it doesn’t let you do much of anything.
I am open to suggestions, but without any sort of center click workaround this is going back to the store.

One more unhappy customer here. Haven't lost hope to find a way to do middle clicks (bought it just a couple hours ago). If I don't succeed during the weekend, will return it and search for something that really allows to do them.

Interesting. You chose a forward-looking, nonstandard mouse, but are unwilling to develop new techniques?
As for me, I am quite happy with this program http://ysgyfarnog.co.uk/utilities/MouseGestures/ to add Mouse Gestures to Internet Explorer (which is my browser).
When having a mouse where you can swipe left for "Back", it's also nice to be able to "Down-Left" to close...
You can define your own gestures there as well. And there is not just a 32- but also a 64- bit version.

* sigh * the limitations of the SetPoint software and not giving users the ability to override/program their own gestures without resorting to third party utils is a fail on Logitech's part. At the time of this posting the latest version of setPoint available on the public site is 6.32.20 10/18/2011. No new versions in close to a year to support feature sets specific to certain products? Really?

I'm afraid that after using this mouse for several months, the lack of a middle click is not simply a quirk of a forward-looking nonstandard mouse. It is a major, glaring defect. However, it seems to me that it's a matter of updating SetPoint to be able to re-map the surface for additional clicking zones. Don't think I can handle 3 non-physical "buttons"? Leave 2-button mode as an option. Or even 5 buttons (3 at the top end, plus 2 in the lower half of the touch-sensitive area). I know, we already have gestures to do "forward" and "back". But maybe I want to have one button emulate a simultaneous left/right click. The point is, it seems like there is a lot that can be done at the software end to make the Logitech touch mouse more competitive with its counterparts from certain competitors.

It is awkward but if you place two fingers a little ahead of the logo on top and click it produces a middle click. This is a very cool looking mouse but very awkward to use. I find the entire body of the mouse moving very strange and placement of fingers on various parts may produce unexpected actions. I will look into returing it to where I bought.
