I recently bought my wife a Lenovo Yoga 11.6 inch 2-in-1, and of course Logos is the program I decided to use to kick the tires on the new machine.  Smile  In the process of doing that, I discovered the difficulty of highlighting text when using just the touch-screen but remembered stumbling across a post quite a while back here on the forums regarding the Touch Mouse Pointer (hereafter referred to as TMP), so I installed it and was very pleasantly surprised, so I wanted to say "THANKS" to those who have posted about it.

The app is mentioned in several threads, but I don't recall the title of the thread I originally found it in and since none of the threads refer to the app in the thread title, I decided to create one that did and hope I can get a question answered about using the TMP in full screen mode.

My question is, how do you go about getting the affect of left and right mouse buttons when TMP is in full screen mode.  I've gone into settings and tried a variety of things using the settings available for the "Full Screen" tab, but I haven't had any luck in figuring out how to affect L & R mouse buttons.  It's a piece of cake when using the app in "Float" mode, but I'm stumped in "Full Screen" mode.

Glad you are enjoying the app. It is a necessary evil until Logos decides to address the issue.

I am able to click/right click by just tapping or tapping and holding. If that doesn't work for you, you may have to tweak your gesture/touchpad settings. Enjoy.

P.S. Thanks for starting a dedicated thread. I should have thought of it.Embarrassed

Hey thanks for mentioned it. I don't know if I ever need it but it's there so if I do need it I have access to it. God bless you!

Thanks, Ralph!  I went back in to have another look at the settings options for "Full Screen" mode and reconsidered the "2nd tap and hold" option in the "one finger" section.  It had a checkmark in the "drag" box and I had been thinking that was referring to actually dragging/moving items (for example a file from one folder to another), but figured I may have misinterpreted the option.  The specific problem I had in "Full Screen" mode was not being able to select text for highlighting, so in reconsidering what the "2nd tap and hold" option might mean, I tapped twice on the first word I wanted to highlight and without lifting my finger after the 2nd tap I started dragging over the text area I wanted to select.  Sure enough, that selected the text area and I was then able to move the cursor to the highlight style I wanted and single tap that to complete the highlighting.  I also played around a little with the two-finger option and was able to select text for highlight by placing the cursor on the first word I wanted and then without any taps, select the text area I wanted by just dragging across the area with two fingers.

All in all, this little app is a real blessing when it comes to using Logos on a Windows 8 touch-screen device or a 2-in-1 Windows 8 device being used in touch-screen mode.

Thanks again to all who have made references to this little gem of an app in a variety of other threads.  It's a great help!

I just installed the tool and am really pleased to be able to simulate the scroll button again!
