Desperate times - tried all types of devices to get precision and not wreck my hand. Tried the RollerMouse Contour- really not good choice with Adobe.
Is there a best option mouse that most users are in love with? I want to learn and create without having to work around the obstacle of a mouse not doing its job. Thank you for all input, this has become so huge that I don't want to work on any projects.
I've had good luck with Logitech.
I use the M510.
Use different tools for different tasks.
For routine computer work, have a Logitech TrackBall mouse. I switched many years ago after a long bout with carpal tendonitis and never looked back. A++
For precision drawing & painting in graphics apps, you might also invest in a Wacom Intuous drawing tablet & pen stylus.
All tools require some getting used to initially. But after you break old bad habits, new tools become 2nd nature.
Was your trackball in the middle or on the side?
I don't know if they still sell the classic Microsoft wheel mouse? But all these years I have loved using it for its comfort. I've used other but none have the same comforting control as the others.
I definitely prefer a pen tablet over a mouse for detailed Photoshop work. Wacom tablets are well known and I've heard nothing but great things. I use an XP-Pen and I really like it.
