Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Hi Forum, in the meantime I managed to get a nice Windows XP up and running as a virtual machine on Windows 10, see screenshot below. https://i.imgur.com/E3Ruovk.jpg I used a German Windows XP ISO that can be downloaded here: • https://archive.org/download/WindowsXPProfessionalwithServicePack3German...

Re: "Spare" (unused) keys to use for information transfer

Ok so I'm using CapsLock and ScrollLock now.

These keys seem to work very good for transferring commands from the iGesture Pad to AutoHotkey.

Re: "Spare" (unused) keys to use for information transfer

Re: "Spare" (unused) keys to use for information transfer

Hi Ivan are you still there? I have now finally tried this approach, but if I use something like: ::x3F:: SoundPlay, Guepard.wav return ...then I first get x3F typed on the screen, then it is erased, and only then the sound is played. Therefore, I'm not sure whether using hotstrings like these will ...

Re: How many of us are left? Does a forum still make sense?

How many of us are left? Does a forum still make sense? Absolutely! Please keep this forum up and running. I have half a dozen iGesture Pads lying on my shelf, and not a single one has gone defective (i.e. I'm still using the first one I bought in 2005). I would be absolutely amputated without my (...

Damn - Undo and Redo suddenly swapped

Hi forum, my iGesture pad suddenly sends CTRL-Y if I do the hand gesture for "Undo", and similarly, it sends CTRL-Z if I do the gesture for "Redo". This has happened to me before occasionally, but usually could be cured by rebooting. I hadn't even associated this problem with the iGesture Pad until ...

Re: "Spare" (unused) keys to use for information transfer

Sorry Ivan that I did not come back to you earlier :o Somehow I seem to have missed the forum notification... While I have not yet implemented this approach, I surely will do so because the current hotkeys that I am using (like PrintScreen and Pause) keep having side effects at times. Thank you David

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

The assumption is that "it takes me not only two seconds (as usual), but instead like half a minute to bring it back to right-hand mode" means that there is some sort of touch and hold function that should take 2 seconds that isn't working. In that scenario, it sounds like the problem could be hard...

As an update on this, I was only going to report that in the meantime, I see the problem as follows. It can happen that I work for like a week all day long with the iGesture pad, and it doesn't confuse left and right hand mode one single time. Then, on another day, it would erroneously switch to lef...

Hi Ivan and thanks for the reply. If I get you right, I think that this is a great idea which should make the team of Fingerworks hardware and Autohotkey infinitely extendable... Kind of like, I make the I gesture Pad send a key sequence like "x3F&8" on a certain gesture, and my Autohotkey script co...

Re: RSI and TouchStream

My RSI symptoms went away after switching to the fabulous iGesture Pad from a normal computer mouse.

Note that however I almost don't do any typing anymore, and have not done so for about a decade, thanks to NaturallySpeaking.

Hi forum, I already use certain keyboard keys to transfer information from the IGesture Pad to Windows applications, especially to Autohotkey, in order to trigger certain Windows actions by certain gestures. For example, I use the IGesture Pad to send "Pause" or "PrintScreen" keys when I carry out c...
