Spread 2 Fingertips tap registering when hold is being used

Hi Ivan, I am having problems with Spread 2 Fingertips.

When I use the hold gesture it usually activates the tap gesture as well.

Have you encountered this problem?

Can I send you my current gesture file?

cheers,
lee

It would be the best thing to do!

This sounds familiar to me, though it might have been the tap action being used (along with the slide action) when a slide was issued. Either way, it was a long time ago on the old forum, so you might want to search there to see what people discovered (wasn't my issue, though I was able to replicate it, but I really don't remember what came of it).

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 PunctPad On
  • ChordHold Properties tab
    Minimum Hold Time = 125

Thats strange, Ive just checked mine and it says 300ms. Maybe it is not registering as 300? It feels like 300....

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).

ah yes. It looks like the chord I am talking about is called:

Word Transpose

Its near the bottom of the gesture editor for the right hand.

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 may do the trick.

Also, any uneventful action could replace the Empty action if this one does not make it any better.
