New xGestures news, plus getting xGestures to work with Chrome

Okay, time to update this blog!  It's been over a year, which is pretty ridiculous.

First, since I'm sure some people are wondering about this, I am still developing xGestures, though I haven't had time to put really any substantial work into it for the last couple of years of my life.  However, I have recently cut back my hours at my job, and with the extra time one of the things I plan to do is make a new 2.0 release of xGestures with tons of new features.  I won't say when it'll be done, because I haven't started working on it just yet and I don't know how long it'll take.  But I want it to have oft requested features such as diagonal gestures, if not complex gestures in general, as well as more gesture actions, more ability to have gestures apply to specific contexts, and things like that.  I'll be sure to update this blog as work progresses on that.  I might also release another minor update to address some long outstanding bugs, but I'm not sure yet.

Second, an issue a lot of people report to me is that xGestures doesn't work with Google Chrome.  I don't know why it took me this long to figure it out, but turning on the "Window under the start of the gesture determines the application" button in the Options section of the preference pane is what breaks things.  So if you use Chrome, you probably want to turn that feature off.  In whichever new release of xGestures I make, I'll be sure to fix that.

While I'm talking about the "Window under the start of the gesture..." feature, I'll also add that even if you don't use Chrome, you might want to turn that feature off.  It doesn't work very well --- results are inconsistent.  Looking back over how xGestures works I can see that I never really implemented that feature properly, especially since lots of gestures don't actually work if the program they're for is in the background.  I'll try to address that better in xGestures 2.0, at least by making it work consistently somehow.

Dear Brian,

Hi, I'm some random guy you don't know, but that doesn't really matter. You know that stupid cartoon you made when you were in high school? Well, The Demented Cartoon is me and my best friend's life. It's probably our favorite thing on the internet, and it would mean the world to me if you remade it. Even knowing that you've seen this comment would make our year.
Sincerely, Riley

is there any chance of an update to presbutan to support lion?

am really missing it!

Conor said...

@Ranjit Presbutan worked for me when I upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard. It stopped working when I did a clean install of Snow Leopard and then upgraded to Lion. I got it working by copying the old preference file from my backup drive to my new preferences folder. I don't know enough about preference files to know if emailing you mine would solve your problem, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

It'd be great to get an update on this, if possible - I'm seeing pretty bad CPU usage with the xGestures process on 10.7 that I can't seem to fix.

3d said...

I too would really enjoy an update on any xgestures 10.7 news! :-)

Xgestures is the BEST gestures tool for osx, and I'd love to be able to install and run(without any cpu issues) in 10.7 lion. Many of us look forward to your reply. Thank you for coding such a great tool!

Longtime fan of xGesture. Awaiting Lion OS version. Sorely needed with what I do, and even more so a beneficial asset in Lion OS!

Anonymous said...

This is by far one of the most essential productivity apps there is for OS X. I have been using xGestures for years! I hope development picks up again to keep it compatible with Lion and up, and maybe even see some new features. This is an absolutely essential app! I dread the thought of using computers without it.

walterw said...

I would really love to use xGestures with my wacom. I visit this blog at least once every month hoping this xgestures is updated. There is nothing that resembles xgestures on the mac yet.

Just wanted to say great work! for making this app for OS X. I hope you can continue the development soon. I've loved "strokeit" in windows but since I'm switching to Mountain Lion, having this app would be AMAZING.
