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 (...

Re: Damn - Undo and Redo suddenly swapped

Okay I found it. The problem was related to, and solved by "Hotkey De-Scrambling for non-US Qwerty OS Input Locales".

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...

Re: Replacing USB cable?

Thanks Torben!

Will keep that in mind in case one of my precious iGesture Pad's cables should break.

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 cou...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

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...

Re: TouchStream LP Querty + iGesture for sale

I bought two iGesture Pads on eBay recently -- but probably not yours, because I paid much less :)

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

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 Autoho...

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.

Re: Custom "3 fingers search and middle click" gesture

Just for the record, since parts of this thread seemingly have been deleted for some reason. I just ran into the same problem again, and luckily was able to find the culprit according to the title of this thread.

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

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" key...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Thanks -- after trying several flavors of VirtualBox and VMLite (which all did not work for some reason; I am under the impression that they are outdated and/or more or less abandoned?), I finally got everything to work with VMWare Player. There, it is actually possible to connect like anything that...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Thanks for your inputs Dustin, Or, when you're tense and not specifically trying to fix the issue, your thumb curls and then number 2 could cause the problem. For two reasons, I don't think #2 can be the cause for the problem. First the hand swap happens thousands of times after scrolling (with four...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

:) I swear that the feature from hell just now struck me after the following gesture sequence: 1.)

Copying the selected text with the two finger copy gesture (...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

This is magic, or something. Accidentally, I felt rather energetic the last 2 hours (doesn't happen SO often here), and the feature from hell has not struck me one single time.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

so sorry if the questions about your finger length seem personal :D but here is another: Is your pinky so short that the pad could think it is a thumb in a different gesture Actually not quite * , but if it were, and if the pad would think it is a thumb, it would not scroll! So that can't be the pr...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Hey Dustin and thank you for the reply, Trying five finger scrolling sounds especially reasonable if you want five finger scrolling anyway, and it sounds like you do. Yes I think that it is very comfortable. However I still suspect that there was some weighty reason to not choose five fingers for sc...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Guys, I start to suspect that the four-finger up/down scrolling gesture is the main culprit here, because most often, the 'feature from hell' occurs just after scrolling (about one time per minute, day in year out). Therefore, I thought I'd use five fingers for scrolling instead -- this would also b...
