Since previous profiles can be imported does that include vibration and oled screen configurations 

Yes, everything in your current Z profiles can be carried across to the updated software.

Also when a beta comes out will I be able to test it?

When we start the beta test details will be posted in our beta test clubs.

will you be able to program a button press plus mouse movement? for example top button press+mouse movement up=1.

or is that only available for the z?

and will you be able to name what a button does with custom profiles? so that when you haven't played a game in a while, you'll be able to look in the software to see what every button does.

Right now mouse movement gestures are only available to the Z in the new software.

In the Zs "Expert Mode" names can be assigned to any mapping so profiles are always easy to understand in the new interface.

New software looks great!  The only thing I'd add in videos is "how to name", which you just described, to bridge the gap between the 2nd and 3rd videos since the 2nd has named macros.

Can I laugh at the first video tho?  I think profile switching for games is just silly as heck.  How often does anyone fire up a game and then fire up a new one 5 minutes later such that mode switching becomes something to worry about?

On the other hand, mode switching for productivity where I will be switching applications all the time is killer!  My keyboard does while my Z doesn't, so I've ended up using more keyboard macros even where a mouse macro would make more sense.  Very much looking forward to this feature.

It's a quick demo video of the feature to illustrate how it works. I don't think you should take it as a literal real world use-case.

This is a real world use-case of the feature. But if you were to show the feature in a small 30 second clip whats more exciting, gaming or an Excel spreadsheet?

I absolutely understand that.  I just find it funny that this is a "gaming feature" for every product that has it.  Every other product manufacturer displays it as a gaming feature.  It's always demonstrated with games.

But it's not a gaming feature, it's an awesome productivity feature!

Personally?  I'd geek out showing shortcuts changing as the user switches between Excel/Word, VS, VS Code, and browser for webpage they're building.  But, yeah, I'm a programmer and, yeah, that's a touch harder to show in 30 seconds.

Wait, what’s expert mode on the z? I’m really confused

Part of the new software coming (hopefully) soon.
