ProntoEdit and hard keys (940)

Hi All,

I've just been re-tweeking my Prontos layout to make it easier to use and I've come across the same problem I always do.

I can create all the pages, learn all the codes, link everything together nicely.

But when I try to get the hard keys to link to the volume +/-, mute, etc, the only one that lets me do anything is the Vol - button.

This is highlighted in green initially. I tell it to alias to Vol - and thats fine. But then if I click on any other hard buttons they turn red and then go back to the unselected grey colour and I can't teach them anything?

I've never found a way around this problem apart from using Tonto to "finish" this last little bit.

Damn annoying!

Anyone come across this and/or have a solution?

Never come across that one, they should go red when you roll over them and then green when selected... Have you installed the latest software..?

Yup, installed latest software yesterday.

They do go red when I roll over them, but selecting them, I've tried clicking on them, double clicking on them, staring *really* hard at them, but they still stay grey.

How do you select them? Do you have the actual pronto connected and press the actual buttons themselves?

I just roll over them, they turn red, then a single left click and they turn green... Very strange... Have you tried a new .ccf rather than trying to edit your existing config..? May be corrupted in some way...

Straws, clutching at..!

Mine don't turn green.
Red on rollover.
White when clicked.
When white, click Alias, choose code et voila.

You might also remember me from such educational films as Lead Paint, Delicious But Deadly and Here Comes the Metric System!

Aha! I just figured it out!

I move mouse over the hard button I want to code, so that it turns red and then press the space bar and it then turns green and I can program it.

Odd way of doing it!

I also note that a ccf edited in Tonto, when reloaded into ProntoEdit, ProntoEdit is quite prone to crashing when I try to edit things I've set up.

Anyway, I've got it doing what I want (alibet it'll need a few tweeks :) ) via Tonto.

Sounds like a corupt file to me... That's the only time I've ever had ProntoEdit hang... Or maybe your mouse is screwed..!

Well the CCF didn't crash in ProntoEdit, I then used Tonto to add the hard key mappings, then ProntoEdit crashed a lot when trying to work with the CCF.

Go figure! :)

And the bit about pressing the space bar to highlight the buttons was with a completely empty new CCF.

The space bar works for me also, you learn something every day..! I'm clean out of ideas, but anyway as there's a workaround, I wouldn't worry too much...
