Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Can you guys believe that this feature from hell has pestered me like a 100,000 times now -- and I still didn't manage one single &%*$§ing time to reproduce it intentionally?

Anyway I will carry on trying very hard.

Re: iGesture with spurious keystrokes

OK thank you very much guys for your suggestions. I have a full metal desktop microphone which I touch every time after sitting down and before doing anything else. This probably has saved me a couple of my iGesture Pads alone. Regarding wireless stuff, I don't have any I am aware of at or near my d...

iGesture with spurious keystrokes

Hi forum, I already feared my beloved iGesture Pad was starting to die since it had developed spurious keystrokes quite heavily. Sometimes even the Backspace key gesture would get stuck and delete everyting in it's path until I managed to unplug the Pad. Cleaning the Pad didn't really help also. Now...

Have you guys seen the AeroTouch App for the Leap Motion device? http://666kb.com/i/cnmz84unxju9o2ll0.png https://airspace.leapmotion.com/apps/aerotouch/windows To me, this looks almost as infinitely configurable as the MultiTouch Utilities by Fingerworks.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Sorry guys for not coming back to you sooner. Somehow I don't get notifications from the board anymore. Will have to check that. I don't think the problem is hardware or ambient conditions-related because it scarcely occurs when I'm fit and alert. I tend to believe you are more tense or something an...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

This is truly a feature from hell . The thing is, and I am not kidding -- if I am tired , the iGesture pad swaps hands nearly EVERY time I touch it for pointing or scrolling. I can even FEEL it before it is going to happen -- but only unconsciously. If I try to reproduce this error intentionally, it...

Yes Torben, I already played around with the hand size setting -- however not with much success so far unfortunately.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Thanks Torben, I'll try and do as you propose (if I can find a XP installation somewhere...) Actually I don't think it is a software or hardware problem, since it happens overly often when I'm tired or in a hurry. I could be doing something wrong myself. If I only could FORCE that behavior one singl...

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Guys, this kills me.

I love my iGesture Pad, but it still does that unwanted hand swap HUNDREDS of times a day (like once every minute or so).

The thing is, i have NEVER managed to evoke the behavior intentionally. But as soon as I forget thinking about it, the behaviour surely starts again.

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Guys, I can't believe that (after like years) I'm still suffering very much from this issue all the time.

The pad auto-changes to the left hand literally HUNDREDS of times a day :? :? :?

Any ideas always welcome :oops:

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

I think you are running in XP Mode, which means the utilities are still run in the XP machine, the display of the app is just redirected to the Win7 desktop where Win7 controls the window format. Yes, Dustin, that is of course correct. What I also tried with no success: Extracted all files in the F...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Thanks for your reply, Thorben. You're correct, Windows Virtual PC also has a setting for choosing which USB devices are routed to the virtual machine. However, this doesn't seem to include mice (these are connected to both the host and client automatically, but only as standard PS2 mouse). In below...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Thanks -- actually what I've done is I've gotten rid of that Thumb/Pinky gesture altogether. It just would not work reliably (only if the hand size was set way too small for other gestures to still work).

Fortunately, I found an unused gesture that I'm now using for "Enter".

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Aahh Torben, just saw your post by chance (somehow I wasn't notified). Thanks very much, I had not thought about the hand size setting. Actually, this happens literally every minute or so (almost every second or third time I use the thumb-and-pinky "Enter" gesture) and terribly disrupts my...

Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture Pad

Hi forum, is there anything at all anyone can think of that could be done to prevent automatic left/right hand switching by the gesture processor? This happens to me literally hundreds of times a day and disrupts my work process all the time. Maybe it is due to my pinky being rather short compared t...

I welcome the advent of multi-touch interfaces on all sorts of devices, but I do hope that while the technology is still new, people will agree on certain gestures, so that they can be made common and easy to use no matter which device one is using. I think a common set of gestures (at least for th...

BetterTouchTool [...] adds all the gestures that the iGesture pad had. Is this TRUE!?? This could become a life-saver for me in the case my stock of iGesture pads runs out after like 30 years time!

Amazing new text input method - fuzzy typing

If this typing recognition method could be adapted to the FW keyboards (or even to mechanical keyboards!) -- would be great IMO.
