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

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

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

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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...
