    I can't access the Tablet PC Forums site to download the latest version of 1.09. Would it be possible to post the file in this thread? Much appreciated for your help.

    Update:

    Got it working now... No need to post. Thanks.

    I have nothing to add other than: THANK YOU!

    I love the ingenuity of people who have technical abilities and get annoyed by some techie thing in their life. THIS is what makes so many other people's lives easier and more fun. Yay for geeks. :)

    Hey OP,

    I did the exact same thing - learned c++, installed the trial borland ide, and modded the code to my liking. Some things I implemented were:

    sliding (it would slow down to a stop) - makes scrolling feel VERY clean.
    circular scroll

    and... in the process I broke a lot of things but those two things are all i needed to get scrolling to feel right. Most of the code I modded is in an issue here:

    Issue 91 - two-finger-scroll - I wrote some code for two finger circular scrolling - add it in? - Two finger gestures for Synaptics TouchPads on Windows - Google Project Hosting

    If you want to look at the code and add it in, please do!

    Oh, i notice that the code didn't include slide - and the code is forever lost in a HD crash. Here's a description for slide:

    Slide works if you are still holding your fingers on the touchpad after having scrolled (couldn't get it to work for when you let go like mobile phones do). It is similar to 'keep scrolling on edges' but works whenever you stop moving your fingers but still have them on the touchpad.

    If the change in the tap deltas are 0 or close to 0, then ignore normal movement and gradually decrease the speed (speed= speed*.8) until it falls below 1 and then set the speed to 0.

    I also made a slider for the speed decrease, to allow you to choose how fast you want to slow down.

    Awesome tool, but you probably already knew that. :D

    How about adopting TFS to support some of the Windows 8 native gestures - like calling up the Charms or App-Bars, and switching through running applications?

    This is amazing. I've been dealing with the crappy Synaptics scrolling for too long. This works exactly how I want!

    While this might be a "great contribution", it also might be laced with some kind of keylogger which sends you private information to remote internet servers. The only way for us to know whether or not the code is 'clean' is to see the source code. The author is not technically obliged to do this, but there's no reason not to, unless he's afraid that (1) his code is ugly, (2) people will find out about backdoors built into the code, (3) he thinks that he won't get donations any more if he does (why would that happen, provided that he continues to develop the tool?).
