“TracXcroll is an auxiliary device that converts the function of a commercially available trackball into creator use. In addition to replacing the ball function with vertical and horizontal scrolling and shortcut keys, you can also replace button functions with shortcut keys. Furthermore, by registering the application to be used, it also supports automatic profile switching.”
“TracXcroll hacks the function of trackball. TracXcroll works as a keyboard and mouse. You can not select applications such as illustration creation or movie editing. In Photoshop, you can utilize trackball by assigning brush size change and screen movement.”
