Comfort Keys 7.2 has been released

Changes in this version:

  • New: The order of words in the word autocomplete window depends on the statistics accumulated by application. The application initially has predefined data on word frequency and word order for the most popular languages. These data are stored in the Common subfolder. When you type any text, the application memorizes the words that you use, so that later it can place the most frequently used ones in the beginning of the list. Which words are suggested also depends on the previously typed text.
  • New: The ability to set a label to an action assigned to a hotkey has been added.
  • Improved: Text cursor position tracking has been enhanced.
  • Improved: The detection of password entry in the active field has been improved.
  • New: Gestures support has been improved. Now the user can assign various actions to gestures.
  • New: An option named "Hide the on-screen keyboard when typing on a physical keyboard" has been added. It works as follows:
    The on-screen keyboard disappears when the user presses a key on the physical keyboard.
  • The on-screen keyboard appears again when the user touches the touchscreen, or calls the on-screen keyboard by pressing a hotkey or clicking the keyboard icon.
  • New "Pinch or stretch to zoom when using a touchscreen" option has been added. To zoom in or out, touch the on-screen keyboard with two fingers, and then move the fingers toward each other (pinch) or away from each other (stretch).
  • New "Touch with two fingers to move" option has been added. To move the on-screen keyboard, touch it with two fingers, and then move in the same direction.
  • New: A volume control has been added in the "Sounds" section of the Options dialog box.
  • New command line parameters for the application have been added: /HELP and /?. They instruct the application to display the list of accepted command line parameters in a message box, and then exit.
