Question: I'd love to remap some of the key bindings in Proclaim.

For example, I'd love to remap the left and right arrows keys to the up and down arrow keys.

Any thoughts? Thanks

Hey Jered!

Unfortunately at this time Proclaim doesn't support rebinding hotkey shortcuts. 

You may want to consider maybe checking out some 3rd party programs out there. 

I'll provide a list of our hotkeys for reference:

I do want to mention though, we're actually planning to add a setting for the up/down key to be used for slide navigation in the near future. So stay tuned and ensure you're downloading our updates!

Fantastic. Since my post, I've downloaded a key binding program that allows me to rebind a key at the macro level (within windows) so that's my solution for now.

For the record, the reason for this is, most of the cheap remote clickers are programmed for page up, page down, for Windows PowerPoint and keynote. Proclaims wireless app remote option is simply too slow in its response time, so the only other acceptable options for me are either fully local control, or a wireless USB remote.

Thanks for the help!y

Thanks for the feedback! Have you tried the local wifi remote? It takes a little setup, but the lag is almost not noticeable. http://support.proclaimonline.com/hc/en-us/articles/209613913-Proclaim-Local-Wi-Fi-Remote

just did it..and yes, response time is flawless. very nice my friend. thanks for pointing me in that direction!

and to finish up, having a simple remote clicker with 2 buttons is simply the best option. I can hand it to anybody, when I'm in a pinch, and they can confidently run the slides for me if my tech guy doesn't show up etc. (as opposed to handing them my phone..touch screens are very figety on many levels.) So, remapping the key bindings would be a fantastic feature in Proclaim, so i'm looking forward to at least the remapping of left/right to up/down, for increased compatibility with the standard remote clickers used for Powerpoint etc. Thanks for the help all!

Hey Christian! Any updates on the up down buttons being available to map as shortcuts to advance through the slide show? would LOVE this feature.
