It's always interesting to get stories about historical events like an iPhone birth. For the time being, it looks as good as could be expected by FingerWorks followers. What we can see from Steve Jobs big show is the result of a great job. Still, it is amazing how easy it is for him to claim all the...

OK, not a timing problem then. At this point, the only difference between this gesture and another that works is a missing ChordLift. Maybe a ChordHold and a Synctap cannot coexist unless a ChordLift is well defined and handled. Unless you've already checked that, a ChordLift with an Empty action ma...

As this is what i can read from your configuration file, I think we are not talking about the same gesture.

I wanted to quote the relevant xml lines but we have a bug in our current version of phpBB that makes it impossible. (portions with "lower" and "greater" symbols are swallowed).

There is a difference between your configuration file and mine: I have such a combination working as expected that has a "Minimum Hold Time" of 350ms where yours has only 125ms. You may check with a higher value there because such a short time qualifies even for a tap. Thumb+Pimky (L Spread) Hold Pu...

Yes! and I just figured out one way to explain why FingerWorks guys terminated their activity: It would be a much brighter future for the technology with Apple than without. Maybe Apple made a commitment to resuscitate the ToutchStream against their saved asses :P It would make it easier to understa...

Sure, but you have work to do for this to happen ;) It's my understanding that this trait is each application responsibility. But the way to achieve the result goes through the discovery of an already running instance. And this can be done either by a new process instance that would wake the old one...

Re: How to enable all gestures, independent of current OS Mo

Does anybody know how to make all gestures work in Mac mode as well, or will I have to forego the nice switching between Linux and Mac and just reprogram my Emacs mode for the Mac only? You have to edit your customization file: C:\Documents and Settings\ivan\My Documents\MyGestures\jwr.xml Removing...

In order to get clicked those ads have to be seen and there is only one way to do that. We have to keep the forum as buzzy as possible with refined gossip :wink: and Apple could be a target of choice. :roll:

As far as I am concerned, if those ads may help you hosting this forum, we can consider this is a fair tribute we owe Google anyway.

jwr did just that with good results! The problem is about finding which part of an array is malfunctioning, meaning that it is not as difficult as it would be with some single damaged part you can compare to a working one only if you have a spare unit to work with. You should give people who can he...
