Hi radioman,

Is there a way to remove the ALT or SHIFT key for the area selection ? I want to select a zone from left click (for that, with DragButton, no problem) ONLY

Thanks :)

Ok, so there is no other solution other than recompile your dll for that (and create my own branch) ?

Hopped that there's an other solution, for easier update with the latest builds

explain what do you realy want, and i'll put some property to disable/enable something...

Oh, thanks, it would be very appreciated :)

I want to have a switch with options "move" or "selection". 

If you click on "move", you can drag the map with left click

If you click on "selection", you can select your area with left click

Choosing the left click is OK with dragbutton, but selection of an area always requires a key entered in the same time.

So, I think enable/disable need to press the default button (or ability to choose a key -including "no button") for selection would be helpfull. Especially for the touch devices, but not only ;}

Thanks a lot radioman :)

Sorry, I mean "move" the option on my switch

Second try :

I want to have a switch with options "A" or "B". 

If you click on "A", you can drag the map with left click only

If you click on "B", you can select your area with left click only

So, I think enable/disable the need of pressing the default key (or ability to choose this key -including the "no key" choice-) for selection would be helpfull. Especially for the touch devices, but not only ;}

I this more understandable ?

ao a is curent default, and B would be the feature enabled?

to select with left mouse key without holding alt?

May 3, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Yes, A is current default

B would be the feature enabled.

And the goal is to select with left mouse key without holding alt, exactly !

radioman.Boost = false; // ;}

No, radioman.Boost is readonly and already set to true ;)

DisableAltForSelection tested today, it works like a charm.

Again sorry for the extra workload
