IDEA: ShiftOff modification
« on: June 21, 2008, 03:14:37 PM »
Skrommel writes about ShiftOff: "Turns off CapsLock when Shift is pressed together with A-Z or other user defined keys." And it really does. I think most times when CapsLock is activated unintentionally it happens by accidently hitting CapsLock instead of Shift.

I therefore ask for a ShiftOff modification. When ShiftOffMod is active, Shift + Key should work as usual, CapsLock should work as usual, but CapsLock + selected Key should be equivalent to Shift + selected Key. In other words, CapsLock behaves like Shift in selected cases.

Yes. The code you sent makes CapsLock work like shift. CapsLock completely does not work when ShiftCap.ahk is runnnig.

I would like to restrict this behaviour to cases when CapsLock + selected Key is pressed. ShiftOff.ahk diables CapsLock when CapsLock + selected Key is pressed, but does otherwise not affect CapsLock's function. I would like ShiftCap.ahk to act in a similar way. I will try to modify ShiftOff.ahk in this way and tell.

 :) Here's ShiftOff v1.2!

ShiftOff - Turns off CapsLock when Shift is pressed together with A-Z or other user defined keys.

Also makes CapsLock work like Shift when pressed togheter with A-Z or other user defined keys.
