I don't think it will do it, but you still have options.

KeyBoardstudio from www.betainnovations.com (http://www.betainnovations.com) will let you do "on press" and "on release" mappings (with 16 functions per!!!).

Autohotkey from (www.autohotkey.com (http://www.autohotkey.com)) will allow you to do things no stick programing software will let you do, but it requires basic programing knowlege.

If I were to recomend one over the other, it would be autohotkey because of its flexibility, but because of its complexity, its not for the average joe.

Are you reffering to the pinkie switch being used as a "shift" key?

I know what you're referring to:

For example, press button A, go to zoom view, press button A again, back to norml view. You can't do it with the stock drivers from Saitek, but there are third party drivers / profiling software that allows it. The drivers can be downloaded from http://vega.dyndns.org/x36/ , you wan't the file named x36usb2105d.zip

The profiling software is seperate and you have 3 choices. They are:

Hazardscript (http://www.mindspring.com/~haphazard/HazardScript/)
XDProfile (http://xdprofile.freebirdswing.org/)
Biped (http://elex.amu.edu.pl/~mjarek/)

I recommend Biped or XDProfile. The Biped site is often down, but I have a copy I can supply if you're interested.

For more information about these alternatives you might like to have a bit of a browse through SimHQ's Saitek Help Forum (http://www.simhq.com/simhq3/sims/boards/bbs/ultimatebb.php?ubb=forum;f=79)
