Adobe Acrobat reader STEALS mouse button assignations.

Post by Hiroki1974 »

XMBC Version: 2.19.2
Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro 21H2 19044.1466 x64
Mouse Information (brand/model): Logitech M557
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc):
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?): No
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?): No
How long have you used XMBC?: about 6 months
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: Japanese

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).:
I assign wheel tilt, left as double click and right as close.
When open pdf file by Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, these assignments resume as normal,
Previous and Next.

Is this problem already recognized or my only problem?

Not something I have seen but I haven't used Acrobat in years. I'll have to install it again and see if it happens here....

OK Seems to be fine for me (I have 4th and 5th buttons mapped to copy/paste and they still work in Acrobat Reader DC).
Also tried setting the scroll wheel left/right as you have and that is working too. Do you have any other profiles in XMBC or just the default profile (where you set the mappings)?

Thanks for your confirmation.

I confirmed again and I have found that the problem occurred
when use both XMouse and Logitech SetPoint together.

The solution is very simple, to uninstall SetPoint... but,
I will have another problem for me.
This is no responsibility of XMouse.

Without SetPoint, my keyboard K810 function keys
turn into unnecessary one like volume up/down etc.
I have to confirm again...

I'm not overly familiar with SetPoint because although I do use Logitech mice, I don't install setpoint (or the newer version).
But I would imagine you would be able to control this behavior in setpoint itself!

Your thought is partly wrong, a small stuff but very important.

To fill my demand, I installed XMouse to assign wheel tilt button
to Close or Doubleclick function which SetPoint can't.

SetPoint can assign all of Logitech mice button to other functions.
But, at my mouse m557, it cannot assign wheel tilt button
to doubleclick or close functions! This is very annoying me.

So, I am very satisfied of XMouse, thanks again!
