This is a Beta release, use at your own risk and make sure to back up your StrokesPlus.xml file. If you're new to S+, install 2.6.3 first, then replace the EXE and DLL with the contents of this Beta release.



Change Log:
- Made several significant adjustments to the TouchPad capture and abort logic.
- If you start moving with 1 finger, then touch the other 1 (or 2 for 3-finger capture) and let go of all fingers at the same time (within less than 150ms), S+ will attempt to recognize the gesture.
- If you start moving with 1 finger, then touch the other 1 (or 2 for 3-finger capture), then remove only 1 (or 2) fingers while still drawing (for at least 150ms), S+ will abort the capture.
- If you start with 2 (or 3) fingers, but while still drawing remove one or more fingers (but there is still at least one finger down), S+ will abort the capture.
- This logic is very tricky to make resilient and provide a good user experience :-)
- Note that, for me anyway, the Synaptics software sees a TouchPad gesture differently when Control or Shift are down, so holding the ignore key stops S+ from capturing, but Synaptics still sees the Control key is pressed and doesn't fire the Synaptics gesture. I changed the S+ ignore key to Alt and the Synaptics software gestures seem to work fine while holding Alt. Even while S+ isn't running the Synaptics software doesn't fire a TouchPad gesture while Control key is held, so this isn't a S+ issue. Also, S+ can't consume the ignore key or you'd never be able to use it anywhere in Windows (Ctrl+C, etc.)
