S&T Keys 2010 Software main thread
Tom Bernardi
MisterMoonlight,

I see from the main thread that you only have XP. I would be happy to test on Vista if ready in the next week or so, then I will be installing Windows 7 and could also test on that if desired.

Is there a test script that you use, or do I just try to hit all the functionality blindly?

I just added it to my Vista laptop as that's the one with S&T 2010 and it loaded fine, Tom. You can probably test it on Vista right now.

Yep my old laptop is win xp only. And my new desktop... yep also

A user already reported it was working under win 7, but you may test it under vista and report your results...

I really appreciate the On-Screen Keyboard feature of S&T Keys (I know it is not new to 2010). If I use my Viliv S5 in 270 degree portrait mode, half of the native OSK is not visible. But with a click in the Keys options, I can pull up the MSFT OSK which fits and works just fine.

Well done, MisterMoonlight.

I don't use this feature myself, because my laptop does not have a touch screen interface, but i am happy to see that at least one user is needing it. So l'll try to keep and debug it correctly in the future ...

MisterMoonligh, I bet there are many more than just one user using the touch-screen interface of S&T Keys. Keep up the great work, and have a nice weekend!

I have no doubt the touch screen interface of S&T Keys (F4 popup menu) is used (i am myself using it with my mouse at home), it is more the On Screen Keyboard (OSK) function popup i was not sure any user was using at all .

Hi MisterMoonlight! Just downloaded S&T Keys 2010 and I love your program! Thanks for all your hard work. I know I'll use it frequently.
Just one question (so far). Is F8 (favorite destinations) only available when the F4 menu is open? It doesn't work when the menu is closed. (The other "F" functions seem to work fine without the menu being open. I am running Win 7 on an Acer Aspire One D250 netbook.

F8 hotkey is available when you navigate in fullscreen only. If not in fullscreen, you must press <F4> than <F8> (or the F8 touchscreen button in the menu). The reason why it is not available when not in fullscreen is that F8 is an important function that show/hide pushpin balloon information and i didn't want to remove that S&T feature by giving the key a second function.

So when you are not in fullscreen, if you are using the keyboard, just press F4 (to get the popup menu) then F8

You can see this in 2009 online manual by looking in help screen (or press F1 to get the help screen). You will see that F8 hotkey is only there in fullscreen in the help menu:

Ok, thanks! That makes sense. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a bug. I see now in the F1 menu that it is a Full Screen function. This is probably my favorite Key so far.

I can not seem to get Keys to start with the last saved map. I have checked and unchecked the box in the options menu with the same result. Running S&T on a Dell Laptop w/ Vista.

Mine doesn't either. It always starts with a new map, even with the option selected. I have my regularly used files on my desktop and also use the Win 7 "jump lists".
MisterMoonlight
For which version of keys are you talking about?

I have tried this weekend the 2009 version and it started the last map file correctly. But if you are using the trial version of S&T, it won't...

Mine is 2010 Hotkeys for MSS&T 2010.
