One of the buttons on my Z is not working.

One of the buttons on my Z is not working.

If there is no obvious physical fault with the button (e.g. no audible "click" when you press it), it is possible that this is just a configuration issue.

To test if this could be the case import the attached profile into the Swiftpoint driver, then set it as active on your mouse.

The "Button Test" profile is configured to display the name of any button on the OLED screen while it is held down. So once you have it loaded onto your Z press a few different buttons one by one to make sure the profile is working correctly. Then check how the button you are having problems with responds.

If the OLED is displaying the name of the button consistently there may just be a problem with its configuration in your profiles. Or perhaps the application you are using does not recognize the key you have it set to.

However if the OLED does not display the name of this button while you are holding it. There could be a physical issue with the button itself, in which case please submit a ticket with details on your findings.
