Gesture Shortcuts - STROKESPLUS for Cintiq Users

Post by Svengali » 12 Nov 2015, 17:46

Strokes Plus -For Windows Cintiq Users - shortcuts without keyboard?

Here is a Windows-users-only utility that lets you define a family of single stroke-gestures that invoke shortcut keys. This could be very useful for Cintiq users who want to avoid having to use a keyboard when working in TVPaint or other software. Set one of the buttons on the Cintiq to activate StrokePlus, then use gestures to trigger your control-keys.

I haven't tried the utility yet so I can't testify as to how hard or easy it is to set up. But it seems worth a look for users who create scripts . 8)

Below is a link to the website where Windows users can download the FREE StrokesPlus utility and learn how to set it up.

Also, here are two links to Matt Kohr's website "CtrlPaint.com" where he explains (in two short tutorials) how he uses the StrokesPlus Gesture Shortcuts with Photoshop.

Thank you Svengali, it's pretty useful. By the way a somehow similar app for OS X is xGestures, but it costs 5$.
Another difference is, that you don't need to script, which surely has some advantages and disadvantages.
