The layout of the iGesture
Numpad's keys are shown above. To the left is what
we see on the physical pad and the right shows the same keys
in the MyGesture Editor.
Keys in the MyGesture Editor
can be selected by using the mouse and clicking on the desired
key. In the picture above, the "End" key is
selected. A key may also be repositioned slightly by
dragging the selected key using the left mouse button. A
right mouse click resets the key to it default
Keys labeled "Empty" represent
hidden keys that may be programmed. In its default
configuration, the Numpad has a hidden "BackSpace" key located
between the left arrow key and the delete key.
Setting an action for a key is
done in the same way as setting a macro. In this next

perform a paste (Ctrl-V) when hit.

Notice there are currently no
events set to this key. To set an event, hit the
"change" or "add" key. The Key/Mouse/Macro Editor window
will pop up.We have
two ways to set this key to a Ctrl-V (paste):
1. Using a Key Stroke Event (like we did when we created a
2. Using a macro for paste that already exists in the

Selecting "Event Macro Ref" under the Event Type loads a
drop down box that lists all the possible Event Macros
currently available to us (see The
Macro Library on how to create a macro). We will
select the macro "Paste" and hit ok.
The hidden key now shows as being set
Finally to update our
FingerWorks with this key change, we will hit the "transfer
Mapping a Gesture, as we will find out next, is done in
a similar fashion to setting a surface key.
