We've had mouse-pointer feedback for a while.. since 1.3.1/1.31, in the internal functions. It jumps the mouse in the vertical direction, horizontal, all the diagonals, etc. I'm surprised FW didn't mention this.
Just go to the gesture in question and tack on a feedback function to the event list. (I currently do that for my keyboard layout quick-switch buttons.) Then the keyboard will "tell" you if the gesture you intended succeeded, ie. it registered and the keyboard sent the appropriate keystrokes. If this is all you want, then these feedback functions would be perfect.
I think, though, that the functions cause the mouse cursor to jump 2 or 3 times. It would be better for such a quick gesture to have it jump once - just quick enough for us to notice that it fired. Maybe that can be a parameter later on?
Wow! This is pretty neat. I've already attached it to the copy gesture (just to try it out, since I don't typically have too many problems from trying to tap with my thumb and middle finger), and I've also attached it to the thumb+middle CCW twist for "escape".'
I totally agree that this would be better if the number of zig-zags was settable. Certainly with the Copy and Escape/Cancel gestures, a single zig-zag would work flow better than the current 2 or 3.
