This is because they are not associated to any action by default. When you select one of those two chords, you can see that the Empty tab is there. This means that you have to bind some key, mouse or macro event for those gestures before they generate something when you activate them. Wow, I just re...

Now, it is becoming painful, here is what I got for an answer: EP130EPE is the part number you ordered. Unfortunately, we do process orders as they come in to our system. We do not change addresses and send them to the address that is is listed. As per Amazon, there is a 90 minute window to cancel a...

Hi, thenn, do you think refusing the delivery could be the best way to deal with the situation?
Ok, this looks like a smart trick to get the package sent back without RMA burden, but I am not sure it would be the best way to get kindly refund cash... :roll:

Although, I use to work with Windows everyday, I'll never call myself a specialist on the subject.

Your language selection is what makes the effective layout when you type. You can also paint the whole surface in black like this: :wink: <img title="SadKeyboard...

Logitech, shame on you

As not much happens currently on FW forum, I would submit something quite out of topic here. It has some distant relation with MyGesture Editor in some way. As an illustration of what a FingerWorks product could have been thanks to a flawed software. As a plain peripheral addict, I could not resist ...

Jan, I believe you've just made yourself famous around here. It makes a real difference to know that a TouchStream can survive to those electric shocks.

Just about plain touch-typing technique

Aside from all our stories about touch-typing on a slick surface, I would like to share some of my concerns about working at typing improvement.

Do you really think Apple hired Westerman and Elias to tinker about with such a great achievement ?
If Mulitouch technology has been hijacked, we can see it was for a mighty cause, Apple willing to help people play with their finger.
