Is anyone using custom mouse actions in Palapeli?
February 13, 2012
Another inquiry post. I’m thinking about removing the custom mouse interaction code in Palapeli. The situation is that whereas most applications hardcode what certain mouse buttons do (e.g. left button = click, right button = context menu), Palapeli allows the user to configure which mouse button (or wheel) does what. For reference, this is the default configuration:
Problem is that the code behind these mouse button associations is awkwardly complex.¹ I plan to remove this mess and replace it with a sane default configuration because I feel it’s just adding clutter without providing much added value.
So if you want me to keep this code, please write back. Besides that, I also accept recommendations for a better default configuration.
