I am testing out Smoothboard 2.0 and I have a couple questions:

(1) Can the off-screen up and down areas be programmed to send a custom key stroke or are they hard coded?

(2) Is there any way to simulate a right click-drag operation? By that I mean holding the right button down and dragging. Works great with the left button but right button seems to be limited to clicking a single spot. Is this correct?

Thanks for this GREAT app!

Hi Cutter,

Here are the answers to your question

(1)
The outside screen toggles in Smoothboard 2.0 is fixed. However, in previous Smoothboard versions, the outside screen toggles are customizable similar to the Floating Toolbar where each area can be configured to trigger certain sets of keystrokes. However, due to lack of usage of this feature by Smoothboard users, we have decided to remove this in Smoothboard 2.0

If you would like to try out the older version of Smoothboard, you may email us and we will send you the file.

(2)
Smoothboard does indeed simulate the right click on a single spot. This was due to compatibility problems with right click drags in certain application during the early stages of the software.

For the next version of Smoothboard, we will look into this again.

You may try to use an additional Wiimote as a Presenter Wiimote, this will allow you to configure triggered keystrokes with the use of the buttons on the Wiimote. Also, you are able to use both left click and right click with the Wiimote.

Two Wiimotes can be used simultaneously which may be quite useful for presentations.

Regards,
Boon Jin
