Re: Are Fingerworks products essential public domain now?

IANAL, but even if that was mostly true, you'd potentially be going up against Apple's legal team if they didn't like it (regardless of whether or not any of their claims had any merit). Also, while it seems wrong to me and might theoretically be something that could be fought, Apple actually releas...

Re: Graphics should be colorblind-friendly

Torben, I can clearly see the difference between the read and unread color rings now, but I don't know if that's due to the update, a different monitor, or something else. Moreover, the fact that I can see the difference doesn't necessarily mean every person with any form of color deficiency would b...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Without reviewing the whole thread paired with no single pad experience and my FingerWorks keyboard experience a distant memory, let me say that the first portion of this post is based on an assumption. The assumption is that "it takes me not only two seconds (as usual), but instead like half a minu...

Re: Building a FW device into a desk?!

As useful as the DigiTouch is, my biggest challenge is that I don't use the US layout and I miss some international characters - I find that even the printed layout doesn't fully match and I can never find the backslash. Bottom line is that I don't really use it and it should go to a home where it ...

Re: Hello from Cambridge, MA!

Welcome to the board. Awesome that the TSLP is still going strong for you. I'm sure I'd still have mine going strong and be better off for it if it weren't for some extenuating circumstances. Good luck with the sell on the digitouches.

Re: Digitouch in Samsung 500T docking keyboard

Really neat, thanks for sharing. Is the white plastic on the edges decorative or does it hold the keyboard in place (the right one is laying on the keyboard instead of in its proper place in the last picture)?

Apparently I've been checking the forum every day, but not logged in, so not seeing new posts. Oops. Anyway, this looks great, but it doesn't look like it's going to meet the funding deadline, which is too bad. They seem to have come pretty far, though, so maybe they can do it without kickstarter?

Re: I'm Baaaaack.

Correct, they do not work natively in Win7 or newer. I haven't had my TSLP's in a long time, but IIRC, the old Java won't install, and the programming drivers aren't compatible. On the off chance that the programming drivers would work in a 32-bit environment, which I doubt, I was able to get the ut...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Thanks for all the help. I have tried the four corner touch and setting the keboard to DVORAK. It claims it has changed the layout, but the keyboard mapping does not change (it remains mapped go QWERTY). Does this work for anyone else? It worked for me, but that was 10 years ago. I haven't had a TS...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

I want to change the layout of the DVORAK keyboard I purchased back to DVORAK from QWERTY I seem to remember that there's some kind of gesture built-in for this (but perhaps it's a gesture to swap between Mac&Windows style, or something else). Do you have the reference material? Try searching the d...

Re: How do I install FW utilities on Windows 8.1?

For starters, if you have a .bin file, you don't have the Windows version of the utilities to begin with. Beyond that, I got the utilities running in Windows 7 once upon a time, but it was tricky and didn't do any good because there are no drivers for Windows 7. Here is my post explaining why it isn...

Ugh! Sorry to hear about that. It looks like it could be a standard component that you might be able to get from a local electronics store or order from digikey.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Regarding the left vs right-hand, I'm not sure because I've never had a single pad, only a dual-pad keyboard. You could definitely set each pad to have a specific action for a specific gesture on the keyboards, and I assumed you could do it on the single pad after mis-remembering what you had said a...

Or, when you're tense and not specifically trying to fix the issue, your thumb curls and then number 2 could cause the problem. However, number 3 seems possible as well since it would make sense to detect which hand at the first touch of each gesture (when there is not currently anything else touchi...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Good point on the scroll gesture being active until all fingers are removed. I forgot. Been far too long since I've had a TSLP, but that particular behavior applies to most gestures on most touch devices anymore.

No, it is actually rather short.

Since the cause is clearly not obvious, I wouldn't rule anything out. Trying five finger scrolling sounds especially reasonable if you want five finger scrolling anyway, and it sounds like you do. However, I'm curious as to whether your four finger scrolling is with your fingers together or spread. ...

Re: and another Kickstarter project with promise

Thanks for the update! Doesn't look like it will be likely to do what I described out of the box, and maybe not at all since it can't look at the keyboard from a flat position and see all fingers. ASETNIOP sounds interesting, but unlike Dvorak, it's so not-standard that knowing it would be of limite...
