Button Held: SHIFT / CONTROL gets stuck

Post by covaxn »

2.19.2:
Windows 10:

Hi all, hi Phil :)
I've got some little issues with my settings:

Layer 1:
Left Button: Button Held (custom)

Button Held Time depended Action:
Normal Click: Left Click
Held For: 175ms, Simulated Keys: DURING {SHIFT}{LMB}

It works fine: Normal click, Shift+Click after 175ms. Perfect.
except that the Shift-Key stays stuck after releasing the mouse button.
I tried everything, all known commands like {CLEAR} won't help.

How can I solve this problem?
thank you a lot :)

Thats odd, I just did a little test here and it appeared to work.... Until I turned on "Wait until physical button is released before sending final action" - With that turned on it does not work and shift gets stuck - which I guess is a bug and I will have to investigate further and attempt to fix it.

However, without it turned on, it seems to work fine - what have you got it set to?

exactly. Thats exactly the issue.
With "Wait until physical button is released" turned on, it gets stuck.
It seem thats also the whole command gets stuck, not only the shift or control key.
{SHIFT}{LMB}{OU}{RUN:C:\Program Files\myprogram\myprog.exe}
-> when releasing LMB, the program does not open

well, I use your godgiven piece of software :) for almost any program installed on my computer and for some, I need control+lmb or shift+lmb

In this case, its photoshop.
When clicking mouse button 4, XMBC sends "ctrl+t" for "transform" and jumps to Layer 2.
In Layer 2:
normal click/hold = normal click = scaling by keeping aspect ratio...
click+hold175ms = shift+click = scaling without keeping aspect ratio...

it would be awesome, if you could fix that (B)

Its on the bug list. I'll get to it eventually but it wont be quick at this stage - I'm already way way behind in doing anything with XMBC.
I'll let you know when I make some progress - it will probably get into the next beta (but I don't yet have any planned timeframe for that).
