Naga Hex V2: Does it support "Switch Keymap" button assignment?

    I know from research that the MMO Nagas allow you to assign a button to switch keymaps. I'm trying to find out if I can do the same with the Naga Hex V2. But I'm getting conflicting info from Google.

    • Basically, this review says that you can, although I wouldn't be surprised if they're wrong, as they incorrectly state that there are 9 additional keymaps (are only 8) and I've come across pretty uninformed reviews from them in the past.
    • In an oversight, only after ordering the mouse did I check the manual, which clearly does not show "Switch Keymap" as one of the button assignments. Weirdly, the manual (all the way back from 2012) for the first-gen Naga Hex actually has it.
    • Then I found this Reddit thread that says it does not support keymap switching buttons, but one of the commenters said that their mouse has it.

    I'm looking for a definitive answer from someone who actually has the Hex V2 with the latest firmware, Synapse software and drivers on Windows 8.1 or 10.

    More generally, can you set a button to toggle a keymap only while it is held down, such that it acts like a modifier key to access a secondary function layer? (This would essentially replicate such features as Logitech's G-Shift and Roccat's Easy-Shift, but with up to 8 function layers, as opposed to only 1 in the others.)

    In general, yes. You can set a keymap button to revert to your default keymap (or whatever keymap you're on) once you let it go.

    As far as the Naga Hex V2 specific question, I don't know. The Naga Hex is the next mouse I'm looking at getting, just to get more awesome Razer mice. I currently have the Naga Epic Chroma, and if you're looking for more buttons anyway, this one (and the wired non-Epic version) is specifically designed for MMO play.
