Idea: launching of farr by pressing the control button twice
« on: October 24, 2006, 07:11:28 PM »
if the shift key is pressed 5 times windows turns the sticky keys or someting (i have disabled it on my machine)
googel desktop search is invoked by pressing the control key twice or someting
FARR can use similar principles. instead of using combination key presses (is use "ctrl + `") or travel over to the pause/break (accross the keyboard)

a couple of taps on the "ctrl" could pop up FARR Farrrrr faster, using either of your "pinkies"

This idea prompted me to write a new coding snack request:

TapTap was just released (Oct. 29):

Let's you map ctrl taps and other taps and other stuff to any hotkey.  For the line to use to make it work with farr as you requested see:  http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=5972.0

Great stuff!!! :beer:

Is there any plan to roll the double-tap functionality into FARR directly (being the only thing I'd use taptap for)?
