As mentioned by Rich here: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/21629/162367.aspx#162367

We need a "Use Gestures - Yes/No" option in the the Program Settings (probably in the Accessibility section).

I agree. Though they have never interfered for me, I could see how they would if someone uses a track pad.

Thanks Todd. I was contemplating making my suggestion a new topic. Glad you did.

Yes, I do think there should be an option to turn these off. In fact, I think that for the sake of tech support, they should be off by default (see the above post for some of my reasoning).

I voted for this in the other thread, and I am serious enough about it that I will vote again. "Vote early, vote often"

YES - my vote too. Yes

Maybe settings of OFF, Small, Large.

On Large, it never triggers for small movements. You have to really mean it, before the detect kicks in.

Not trying to cause an argument, but why would this be a problem. Just don't hold down the right click button and drag. When does this accidentally happen? I can't imagine when it would, but I'm probably not thinking of some use case where it would.

it would be kinda hard to highlight text without doing this, or select text for copy/pasting.

Actually, one uses left click and drag to select text.  Right click is used for gestures.  But I still think an off-switch is needed for accessibility purposes.

Thanks Todd. There i go meddling into beta territory with a sense of paranoia. You are correct! (loose track sometimes of which button i'm pushing on a touchpad on my laptop) 

Edit: apologies Kevin, guess none come to mind.

The two scenarios I presented above are for someone with a shaking hand (e.g., Parkinson's disease), or someone who is trying to do something with the right-click button that triggers the gesture without even realizing there is such a thing as gestures. The first case would be one that I believe Logos would want to address (they do want to make their software as friendly as possible to the disabled). But either case presents a problem that would require tech support time and money.

Will these right click gestures interfer with the right click gestures used by Morris Proctor in Camp Logos presentations? I use and relay on the same program in the classroom.

I can not not check this because I am not doing this beta series due to too many "production" needs.

You've pointed out some good reason here Rich.  Personally I'm not to fussed either way about them but based on this reasoning agree that have an off option is a necessity.
