Blender 3D Macro Help?

I'm new to Razer and Synapse. I bought a Tartarus Pro to help me with the key combos used for Blender 3D, but I've run into a problem trying to create a macro for the Zoom 3D Viewport function.

Press and hold CTRL + MMB, and then moving the mouse forward or backward zooms the view. I can't figure out how to bind CTRL and MMB to be held down while I hold down the assigned Tartarus key, and then release CTRL and MMB when I release the Tartarus key.

I'm sure the answer is simple but I just don't see it. I created a macro where it captures the down keypress of CTRL & MMB, but then it never releases. I've created other macros where its repeatedly pressing the buttons, but I can't see how to match the hold of the Tartarus key with CTRL + MMB hold.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I just joined the forum and I found your question. I will try to help, even though my Synapse is in Brazilian Portuguese, I try to translate as best I can.
I own a Tartarus V2 that is practically identical to your Tartarus Pro and I also use Blender sometimes.
After some tests (and turning the computer off and on several times due to badly programmed Macros causing my keyboard to freeze) I believe I managed to set up an acceptable configuration, at least.

ATTENTION: if your keyboard locks or keys are pressed, turn the computer off and on (do not restart) and do not press the corresponding macro button again until you discover where the error is.

I will describe exactly how I did it here. The Macro is triggered in the on and off mode, the continuous pressing did not work with me, causing the problem that I mentioned above.

Macro Name: What is convenient for you

1 - Insert> Keystroke> choose CTRL (IT IS MANDATORY THAT HE IS ON THE MOUSE BUTTON IN THE HIERARCHY, AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO BELOW)

Note that 2 events will appear, one triggering and the other releasing the button. the second command must be BETWEEN these two events.

2 - Insert> Mouse Button> choose SCROLL CLICK

When doing this right, it should look something like in this order:



After you finish creating your Macro, go to the keyboard settings and choose the key to be used by it and select the option "ALTERNATE ON / OFF CONTINUOUS PLAYBACK USING THE DESIGNATED KEY" (I don't know if it is translated correctly, but I will show an image to help a little where the option is):



If everything goes well, what should happen is the following:

* One click triggers the macro and you move the mouse to zoom in / out.
* And a second click turns off the macro, causing the mouse's behavior to return to normal.

AND AGAIN, IF THE MACRO LEAVES THE KEYS LOCKED, TURN THE MACHINE OFF AND ON. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHOOSE THE OPTION TO RESTART OR IT MAY CAUSE ERRORS TO RESTART BECAUSE THE KEY IS STILL PRESSED!


I hope it helps. Anything, you can ask without problems that I try to help.
However, I still prefer to use the Mouse Wheel for zoom, wouldn't that help you too?

All the best!
