Button chording: use keyboard keys as well?

Post by spitfire_ch »

XMBC Version: 2.19.1
Windows Version: 10 64 bit
Mouse Information (brand/model): Logitech Trackman MX Ergo
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc): Core i7-8700, 16 GB RAM
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?): no problem
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?): no problem
How long have you used XMBC?: many years
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: CH-German

Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are having problems with (if applicable).:

Sorry, yet another suggestion: Would it be possible to include not only mouse buttons but also keyboard keys in button chording - or at least some often used modifier keys? E.g. Middle Click does whatever it is defined to do, Ctrl + Middle Click slows down the mouse cursor.

Thanks for considering this.

You can sort of do that already... Use CTRL as a layer modifer key to activate another layer while held and on that layer change the button to something else. Beware though using the left button because ctrl+left click is already quite common in many windows apps!
