Hey there,

I'm totally new but just saw the forum is not that active anymore. However, As I'm Playing around with my setup I finally found a way to use gestures with my IR Pen. As I've tried the search on this forum to see if you guys found anything, I'm sure other people will do the same one day. So Here's my sollution for it:

I've installed Smoothboard for my Pen and activated the Smart menu when I hold.
When you get the smart menu, you see a Dial with options but also some sort of D-Pad as an option. This option is like holding the middle mouse button.

With the StrokesPlus software you can select what causes to trigger gesture recognition. For this, select 'Middle Mouse Button'.

Now, When you go to smart menu and select the D-Pad, middle mouse button is triggered and you'll be able to make any gesture work.

Good luck

Hi RodiV,

Thanks for sharing the tips. :)

StrokePlus does look like a great match with Smoothboard.

What are the shortcuts that you have set?

By the way, if you have any feedback for the Smoothboard software, please do tell us. Thanks!

I use the Smoothboard toolbar for keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+z, ctrl+c, ctrl+v
Gestures I use to run certain programs.
'P' = Paint
'G' = Google Chrome
'R' = Roll20 website

that's it for now, but then again, my setup is very new and I'm still trying to solve problems I have, which are:
- holding shift button while clicking things, which is needed for software I use
- the ability to hover the mouse somewhere, so dropdown menu's can actually drop

Also I still haven't tried certain things yet, like using multiple pens. Maybe I can do something with that to solev my troubles.
