ok, Ive managed to do something. Its far from perfect, but it will speed up a lot of the usual day to day numbers that I end up typing in maya/photoshop.
These are all on Thumb + 1 Fingertip, left hand (for the moment):
. = chord tap
1 = chord hold (350 minimum hold time)
0 = rotate hand clockwise (1.0 motion speed)
tab = chord release
If I want to type 1, 10, 100, 1000 etc I just hold down slightly longer to get the 1 in front of the 0's.
If I want 20, 200, 2000 etc I use the numbers on my right hand and then slide quicker on the left to get the 0's on the end.
The tab enables me to type many numbers in different field boxes within maya ie when Ive finished the slide it goes onto the next one when I release my hand.
The fullstop is for 0.1, 0.2 etc
I already have 1-9 on my right hand which I use in conjunction with the above on my left hand.
I had to experiment a lot with 1 (minimum hold time)
and the motion speed of 0, but for now it seems to hold up without too much grief.
It would be nice to get - minus in there somewhere, trouble is the tab is enabled whenever I release which makes more than one gesture on the same fingers a problem.
This is early days, but If anyone has any recommendations or ways to improve this, I am all ears.
