Using CTRL modifier

Post by lefty » Sat Apr 08, 2017 4:06 pm

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I did not find a solution.

I am one armed and have a 7 button EX-G trakball mouse. For one of the software packages I use frequently at work, I need to do a CTRL-left click. My thought was that I would program one of the buttons to hold CTRL while I clicked. I tried this:

{CTRL} as the custom key and set it to option 3 During. Then, I hold the button I am modifying and click left once.

It doesn't seem to give me the desired result of CTRL-click. Any thoughts?

Hi Bryce,

That should work. There are several things to try. Firstly, you could trun on debug logging that will tell you (or more likely me) what is happening - if the presses are being seen and remapped as expected. Repeat the action a few times and then send me the log (post a snippet here, PM it to m or email it to me).

You could also try setting the custom key to {CTRL}{LMB} to send both the CTRL and the left button (presuming the left button is the one you need to click), but if {CTRL} isn't working, maybe that wont either.
