LOL, I modified it to use the parent when parent is the match type (dropdown selected index = 1), I didn't actually check that the old behavior still worked as expected with anythin other than selected index 1 :oops:

Here is 2.21 Beta 22.

Its been a while, and there is some interesting/exciting (for some) new stuff in here, which I'll talk about later...

Changes since 2.21 Beta 21 (above):
  • #840 - Modified to always send VOL+/- keys no matter the current master volume slider value.
  • #831 - Fixed an error in the previous version that broke the window finder for normal window matching!
As usual, feedback welcome - especially if you find a bug! Any issues/problems, Enable debug logging, make a note of the time the problem occurs and then PM me a copy of the log file (or post a snippet of the last hundred lines or so in a code block here).

NOTE: If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only ~1/3rd of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

No portable version yet. If that's a problem, let me know!

Please keep this beta thread on topic. It is for announcements and reporting bugs in the current beta, NOT for requesting new features and/or asking about existing (non-beta) functionality!

Both Media - Volume down and {VOL-} now set the volume to zero. Was working fine in beta21.

Vol+ is fine.

Oh well :lol: It's fixed now in Beta 22 :)

@jhonGL & Phil: I also noticed that there's a problem with the volume. (since Beta 22)
- The system sound volume lowers when I send {ACTIVATE}{WAITMS:10}{x} or {ACTIVATE}{WAITMS:10}x
(using Wheel Up/Down or Tilt or any mouse button) to Firefox.
- Firefox gets the keypresses, but at the same time the volume lowers everytime.

Here is 2.21 Beta 23.

Its been a while, and there is some interesting/exciting (for some) new stuff in here, which I'll talk about later...

Changes since 2.21 Beta 22 (above):
  • #841 - Modified Sticky Hold simulated keys to remeber state per button (thus multiple sticky held keys will work at a time)
    Also allow sticky hold keys to be aborted with the press of any physical key, or mouse button, or (eventually) a specific key (not implemented yet)
    Fixed a few potential issues with repeat simkeys (particually regarding aborting them).
  • #842 - Attempt to fix reported issue with simkeys failing after resuming from sleep. Added additional debug logging if fix does not help.
  • #839 - Some enhancements to configuration of Arduino devices (still intended for internal/private testing).
As usual, feedback welcome - especially if you find a bug! Any issues/problems, Enable debug logging, make a note of the time the problem occurs and then PM me a copy of the log file (or post a snippet of the last hundred lines or so in a code block here).

In Beta 23 all 'Block original mouse input'-checkboxes (existing & for newly made macro's) are unchecked. After reverting to an older version, the boxes are checked again.

Changes since 2.21 Beta 23 (above):

Hey Phil, I think I found an easy one for once. The "Action Tags" > "Activate Process" menu shortcut comes with a stowaway. It inputs the following:

{ACTIVATEP:<process.exe>}{VOL:25}

I'm guessing the volume tag is an uninvited guest?

Thanks, as always, for the useful software. I also have a longstanding issue involving the "draw order" of the Application / Window Profiles. Often, after loading the master profile, the menu listings will load the incorrect Window Profile for each entry. Cycling through the menu once causes the entries to self-correct. I've accidentally edited the wrong entry several times and, of course, managed to overwrite the save thanks to the "Warning: If you say No" auto-save prompt (please make this prompt default to a new save iteration rather than a one-punch overwrite and you might add years to my life expectancy). The menu issue isn't new to 2.21, I think it's been a nuisance since day 1. It might have something to do with the application profile list populating before the associated profile data is finished loading.

This beta release has been remarkably stable and problem-free for me compared to previous updates, so I feel entitled to break out my "Greatest Hits" complaints! The road to hell is paved with good intentions, Phil!

Can you give me more of a step by step so I can see if I can reproduce this - it sounds like a nasty one.
What do you mean by "menu listings" do you mean the content of the profile list window (with the checkboxes) or the combo boxes or something else?
And what do you mean by self correcting by "cycling through the menu"? What menu?
I often (when debugging) switch between different peoples master profile, but I can't say Ive ever noticed this (that's not to say it isn't happening though!)
