Apple Magic Mouse 3rd Button Question

Hi, I have an Apple Magic Mouse that I use with my laptop and will use with my new iMac.

I also have applications that require for me to hold down the roller (scroll) wheel on a 3-button mouse to perform functions within the application.

My questions is how does one do that on a Magic Mouse, given that it doesn't have a roller wheel or a 3rd button (that I know of).

Granted, some applications allow you to configure the application itself for a 2 button mouse (like Blender), but others like Unity 3D don't give you the option. So, how does one use a 2 button Magic Mouse on applications like Unity and others that require the 3rd button to perform functions.

I've experimented with it a few times, but to no avail. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help,
Fulano

MagicPrefs does a good job at this. It's a free app for OSX.

Hi Madnhain, sorry for the delay. I had a lot of software to load on my new iMac.

Thank you for the suggestion. I think this was a great solution.
