By using:

local iHandle = acGetForegroundWindow()
acActivateWindow(nil, gsx, gsy)
acSendKeys ("{F_5}")
acDisplayText("Refresh", "Arial", 64, 200, 50, 255, 500, 650, 400)
acActivateWindow(iHandle, nil, nil)

Man!!!! now that's something else!

Strokes plus is insanely good. Found about it 3 days ago and I'm having a blast.

Note the acDisplayText command. Can I make the test to show up right under the cursor's location no matter where I am on my 3 monitors?

Steps: Utility > Run


Understood, then join the forum over there for the new version :)

BTW: This new version seems to have a much better AI to recognize the gestures.

I changed my HotKey presets from the Script Tab to the Steps tab "Send Hot Key" and works wonderfully.

I guess I just need one thing:

How do I load a folder? I used:

acShellExecute("open", "C:\\folder", "", "", 1)

I'm not sure how to do it with the Steps tab. I found "Run Program" I guess I'm close.

No rush :) I like forums (unless this one is old and unused)

And if you hop in Discord, I'm usually around to help out in real time (though I'm traveling for work this week, so slower responses than usual):

Seems like "Insert Hotkey" is doing what I want so far. Not sure about invoking folders.

Things like window focusing seem now managed by the app (good)

I JUST added Steps like less than 5 days ago. I would say use the Steps unless you're making something very complicated.
Sacco_Belmonte Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:49:52
Ok. so what would be the way to go? The Steps tab?
Rob Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:46:22
The scripts are, unfortunately not compatible :/ It was a complete rewrite from the ground up. That was another reason I was asking, before you got too far along.
Sacco_Belmonte Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:43:46
Sheesh! no...I got it from somewhere else and wasn't aware of that. Thanks a lot, I'm gonna update to that one now. :)

EDIT: So I updated. Manually rebuilt all presets / scripts but for some reason all gestures are giving errors related to the scripts. All I did was to copy/paste from the old program to the new (then close the old)
Rob Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:21:04
Glad to hear! So I have to ask, is there a reason you're using this version (older and no longer being enhanced) instead of the newer
Sacco_Belmonte Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:18:09
Brilliant! Thank you :)

I used this to be able to get it below the cursor.

acDisplayText("Refresh", "Arial", 34, 200, 50, 255, 200, acGetMouseLocationX()-50, acGetMouseLocationY()+20)

Man, this program! :)
Rob Posted - 12/17/2019 : 18:09:54
Try this:
acDisplayText("Refresh", "Arial", 64, 200, 50, 255, 500, acGetMouseLocationX(), acGetMouseLocationY())
