Can Deep Click be an independent button that doesn't press the normal click along the way?

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I just got The Z and I love it, but I have one issue.

I will explain it on middle button example. I've bind middle mouse click to 8 and deep click to 9. When I just click middle button it works as intended, pressing 8, but if I use Deep Click, both 8 and 9 are pressed, meaning that normal click is pressed before I "reach" Deep Click, which is not my intention, I just want to get strait to Deep Click without pressing normal click along the way, which is meant to be a different key

Is it how this Deep Click works or am I missing something in config?

Tilt for example doesn't do that, if I bind 8 to Tilt Left 1.8 and 9 to Tilt Left 3.0, mouse knows when I intend to press just Tilt 3.0 and it doesn't also activate Tilt 1.8 because it was on a way to "reach" 3.0.

I hope my explanation is understandable.

Thanks

EDIT: The same issue seems to be with pivot. If I for example bind something to Pivot Left 7 and different key to Pivot 11, and then move the mouse to press Pivot 11, Pivot 7 will also be pressed along the way. Why only tilt doesn't do that?

That is exactly how it's meant to work, even tilt, one way to have multi output do single select output button is to use button releases instead of presses.

You could also add vibration to the press of the output to know which output you are giving, not nessesary for the regular tap but for the deep clicks. Also you'll need to block further outputs when doing this so you don't output the other outputs also, not nessesary to add this to the regular tap, again.

Hope that's clear enough, though if not let me know and I can take some screenshot to clarify it.

Thanks for your answer. I suspected that this is how it meant to work, just wanted to make sure.

If you have some time though you could post some screenshots to clarify what you mean by using button releases instead of presses and blocking further output. I know about these options but don't fully understand how to use them the way you described.

So here's a simple example with two outpts, so if you just tap the button, so it doesn't reach the 50% force treshold for the deep click, it will output number 1 and when deep clicked it will output number 2 and skip number 1 on button release. Also worth a notice that there won't be any other outputs until you release the physical button, that is how the stop further outputs works.

How the release looks, notice the checkbox to stop further outputs:

And here's a screenshot with four outputs with increasing vibration force to tell yooou which output your getting(you could also add or replace the vibration with led screen output to tell you at which output you are at):

Thats a great info, I will test all of that, thank you!

Could you also look into my other thread here and see if you can help?
