I'm really keen on the caps lock/hyper key functionality. But if I enable this, do I lose the normal caps lock function? Just pressing and releasing caps lock doesn't lock caps for me when it's set up as a hyper key.
by default yes, worth the latest alpha you can configure the hyper key action to trigger a named trigger if it was pressed alone, see THANK YOU for Capslock -> Hyper! A small request... - #4 by Andreas_Hegenberg
You can then assign the "Toggle Caps Lock" action to that named trigger.
Brilliant - thank you!
I just updated to 3.552 and I can't make Toggle Caps Lock work with Hyper key.
- I created a named trigger and assigned the "Toggle Caps Lock" action to that named trigger. I also added a HUD message to see when the named trigger gets triggered.
- I configured Caps Lock to Act as Hyper Key
- I configured the Act as Hyper Key action to trigger the "Toggle Caps Lock" named trigger.
Actual Result: I press the Caps Lock key and release it. I see the HUD message pop up from the named trigger but the Caps Lock state is not toggled.
When I press the Caps Lock key down the green light in the key blinks once, when I release it it blinks once again. It does not stay illuminated.
Expected Result: I press and release the Caps Lock key and the Caps Lock state gets toggled.
When I execute the named trigger using some other key combination then the Caps Lock state gets toggled properly. It's just the Hyper Key itself that can't toggle it.
Same issue with me. Exact same setup along with a HUD to test!
you are right, could you try again with 3.553?
Toggle Caps Lock works as expected in 3.553
