I have an acer w500 with windows 8. I use strokesplus and it works good, but obviously I can't use modifiers (there isen't the keyboard) with left click, so I must use the right click, holding 2 second with my finger on the screen.
does is possible adding a function, usefull for tablets, that allows to use 2 fingers for drawing gestures?
sorry for my bad english

ops, with left click and delay options doesn't work double click, so I can't open folders.

edit: mmmh, with triple click it works, very strange...

I'll think about that and see if I can come up with something that doesn't interfere or add overhead to the current operation.

oh good :)
maybe you could add a function that looks the speed of the moving cursor. so if I move fast it draw gesture and if I move normal no. this doesn't solves the browser problem but it could be an usefull function, I think

That is likely because the browser is accepting the touch messages which is probably preventing a mouse message from being generated. I agree, a touch version would be best...but it's also a massive effort which will be a while down the road.

Yes, I understand you perfectly!

mmmh, maybe it works. I've set cancel delay at 500ms, and gestures with left click. so when I simply move my finger it draws gesture, and waiting 0,5 sec cancel it. seems to be ok, but when I use browser and I go UP, it doesn't works gestures, instead it scrolls. so, when I use some software with text, I cannot use vertical gestures.
However is a good alternative, but I think 2 fingers will be the best

p.s.: really do you understand what I'm writing? my english is not very good

Also, have you tried any of the tips in this thread:

Basically, it involves using the left click and cancel timeout and unchecking Reset Cancel Delay in Preferences..not sure if it helps.

ahah. sure, windows 8 tablet is great, but strokesplus let me use it much faster. thanks for your work, I wait for a strokesplus touch version

Although, it certainly gives me a justification to get a Win8 touchscreen device

Unfortunately, S+ was written using mouse hooks. At some point, I will need to update or create a separate version which accepts touch messages.

Clearly, this is something that is becoming more common as we move into a touch world, but it can't be simply added to S+ in its current state. However, it is something that I will be working towards.

I'm moving this to the closed forum as it doesn't really fit into a request, rather a new version of S+ entirely; I'm not dismissing your request
