Peripedal Stealing Focus

Postby DMPG » Thu May 28, 2015 8:21 pm

Hello All:

Is Peripedal supposed to constantly steal focus? It appears that even if I have another application in front of Peripedal, or when Peripedal is minimized, it steals any key commands (I use VLC to watch DVDs -which uses key commands to resize the video). The only way to stop this is to close Peripedal and reopen it when I am finished with the other application(s). Have other people experienced this?

This is a side affect of the hot key functionality in PeriPedal. This allows you to use keyboard key presses to perform action. Details here:

That said, I could probably release that functionality when PeriPedal is no longer in focus. I will consider that for a future version.
