    Default Shift/Click Mouse Button for backspace

    I would like to use a shift/click combo to get a backspace using the mouse.

    I have currently run out of mouse buttons..........

    I have: undo, escape, ortho, osnaps, alt/tab for drawing switching

    No more buttons left for backspace.

    How would I achieve a shift/click combo for this????

    Why not put the undo on the button and OSNAP back on shift-right-click?

    Shift with right click does not turn off running object snaps............I am looking to speed up drafting by keeping some items on the mouse.

    maybe its just me, but I dont understand how doing a shift+click (two actions) is better than just hitting the backspace button (one action)...

    I am using keyboard with the number pad on the left and a right hand mouse. I can do everything I need to do with the mouse except "backspace". I would not have to let go of the mouse if I could execute a backspace.

    I tried to remap a button on the keypad (near my left hand), but did not have much luck.
