1. MOUSE MODE:

 

Enables click-pad and touchpad with physical buttons to act like a mouse with three left, right and middle buttons and pointing the cursor. 
 

Note: Click-pads
Click-pad has only single button under the whole touch area. So, the touchpad bottom area is divided into three parts for the buttons left, right and middle.

 

BUTTONS:

Left button      :   Performs Left click
Right button    :   Performs Right click
Middle button  :   Performs Middle click
You can configure middle button for different actions from Mission Control in "Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts" as shown in below picture.

For Middle click:
Click-pad: Press and click at middle of the touchpad button area
Touchpad with physical left and right buttons: Click both left and right buttons same time

 

Customization:

You can control buttons with the following plist options. Located at IOKitPersonalities->Smart-Pad->Preferences->Buttons in the plist.

  1. ClickpadVirtualButtons (Yes/No) : Enables virtual buttons for click-pads by dividng the bottom area into three parts, otherwise only one button "Left" will work default.
  2. ClickpadVirtualButtonsArea (Value 0 -100) : Sets the % of touchpad area (bottom) used by the virtual buttons.
  3. DisablePhysicalClicks (Yes/No) : Enable/Disable physical buttons.
  4. VirtualMiddleButton (Yes/No) : Enable/Disable virtual middle button for click-pad.
  5. 2FingersClickAction (Value 0 - 23) : Configures the gesture 2 fingers button click action from supported actions list in click-pad.

 

POINTING:

This driver tries to provide extensive control over pointing the cursor to give a smooth feel in acceleration. Following are the plist options that controls the pointing. Located at IOKitPersonalities->Smart-Pad->Preferences->Pointing in the plist.

  1. AccelerationPrefValue (Value 0 - 4) : These are acceleration tables used by apple for their devices. Each table has different acceleration curves, so try them and choose which its for you.
  2. PointerCustomAcceleration (Value 0 - 20): This value controls the dispatch rate of the pointer position and by doing so its can alter the acceleration level. Increasing the value will reduce acceleration and decreasing will speed up.
  3. PointerResolution (Value 100 - 3000) : This is the resolution of the pointer used by OS X. Increasing the value will smooth the acceleration by reducing its speed and decreasing will speed up but reduces smoothness.
  4. PointerSmoothLevel (Value 1 - 20) : Controls the smoothness of the pointing. Increasing the value will smooth the acceleration by reducing its speed and decreasing will speed up but reduces smoothness.
  5. PointerSmoothSamples (Value 0 - 10) : Number of samples to used to smooth the pointing. Increasing the value will smooth the acceleration by reducing its speed and decreasing will speed up but reduces smoothness.
  6. EnhancedAccelerationLevel (Value 0 - 15) : It extends the acceleration of the pointer for speeds of the pointing higher that Minimum delta key.
  7. EnhancedAccelerationMinDelta (Value 0 - 255) : It sets the minimum delta needed to apply extend acceleration.
  8. SlowMoveNoiseMaxDelta (Value 0 - 30) : Some touchpad's generate noise (random x and y delta) during slow moves which causes the pointer to move like a wave. Use this value to ignore those noise data.
  9. Sensitivity (Value 0 - 255) : Sets the sensitivity (Pressure or Z value) of the touchpad.

4. SCROLLING

 

Need to enable the options "Use two finger to scroll" and "Allow horizontal scrolling" in Trackpad prefpane for enabling scrolling.

Note: You have to change the Scroll speed value from the Trackpad pref for the first time after installing the driver to work.

  • Two Finger scroll: 
    Swipe two fingers either horizontally for horizontal scroll (or) vertically for vertical scroll.
  • Edge Scrolling: 
    Swipe one finger vertically on the right edge of the touchpad for vertical scrolling and horizontally on the bottom edge of the touchpad for horizontal scrolling.

Scroll Acceleration modes: (v3.8 or later)
There are four modes of acceleration for scrolling in my driver, which can be set by editing the plist entry "2FScrollAccelMode" for 2f scroll and "EdgeScrollAccelMode" for Edge scroll.
They are:

  • Optimized Acceleration (mode 0) : This is optimized mode which works best across all the touchpads same.
  • Fixed acceleration (mode 1) : This mode has fixed acceleration/speed and varies only with scroll speed value.
  • Extended acceleration (mode 2) : Its an extended version of optimized mode with more acceleration.
  • Super acceleration (mode 3) : This mode reflects the acceleration of your fingers and works based on that. It doesn't depend on scroll speed values from Trackpad prefpane but you can use it extend the speed even more for high resolution touch pads.
  • Super Extended acceleration (mode 4) : This is same as mode 3 but extends the acceleration.

NOTE: Additional controls
Hold "Left shift" Key for reversing the direction of the scroll
Hold "Command + Control" keys to speed up the scroll 2x
Hold "Command + Option" keys for Auto scroll (as alt function) when both Inertia (primary function) and Auto scroll are enabled.
 
SCROLL EFFECTS

  • Auto scroll:

​         Use the finger(s) to flick (doing a quick swipe and removing the fingers from touchpad) for scrolling in the direction you want to get  
         the auto scroll (speed depends on the flick strength).

  • Continuous scroll:

Scroll the direction you want and hold the finger(s) firmly to get the continuous scroll in the direction you've scrolled.

  • Inertial scroll:

Use the finger(s) to flick (doing a quick swipe and removing the fingers from touchpad) for scrolling in the direction you want to get inertial effect (speed and motion depends on the flick strength).

  • Sling scroll:

Do the vertical scroll and hold the fingers at the very top/bottom of the touchpad between 1-2 secs then release, which will do scroll in reverse direction quickly to scroll back.

  • Circular scroll with Edge scrolling:

Start the gesture on the edge and do some scroll before moving the finger to the center of the touchpad, now try to draw a circle around the center of the touchpad which will do scrolling continuously as long as you draw the circle in clockwise (or) anti-clockwise for either horizontal or vertical scroll.

 

Customization:

You can control scrolling with the following plist options. Located at IOKitPersonalities->Smart-Pad->Preferences->Scrolling in the plist.

  1. 2FScrollAccelMode (Value 0 - 5) : Sets the acceleration mode to use for 2 fingers scroll.
  2. Inertial2FingScroll (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables Inertia for 2 fingers scroll.
  3. Continuous2FingScroll (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables continuous for 2 fingers scroll.
  4. Auto2FingScroll (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables auto for 2 fingers scroll.
  5. Sling2FingScroll (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables sling for edge scroll.
  6. 2FContScrollMaxDelta (Value 0 - 200) : Sets the max delta allowed to trigger continuous scroll.

 

  1. EdgeScrolling (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables edge scroll.
  2. EdgeScrollAccelMode (Value 0 -5) : Sets the acceleration mode to use for edge scroll.

This is meant for those who need scroll level greater than 6 at boot, because there is a bug in OSX prefpane which is not saving the speed level above 6. Value 0 disables this and will try to load prefpane value at boot.
  5. ScrollLevelFactor (Value 0 - 10) : Sets the scroll speed multiplier. This will increase the speed levels of prefpane by multiplying.
  6. ScrollLevelGranularity (Value 0 - 100) : Sets the granularity of the scroll speed to get precise scroll levels. This will provide more control over the scroll speed by multiplying against the value we get from the combination of ScrollLevelFactor and Prefpane scroll speed. Default value is 70% of the value we get from ScrollLevelFactor and Prefpane scroll speed.

5. SWIPES

 

Performing swipe gesture triggers the functions configured to them. The functions can be configured by editing plist file with the value from the the available "Supported OS X action values to config gestures" list above.

 

Three Fingers:

  • Swipe Left and Right:
     
    Performs backward and forward functions in Browser, Finder and others. (ISO keyboards need keyboard layout config in keyboard plist)
  • Swipe Down: Performs Application switch
  • Swipe Up: Opens Launchpad

Four Fingers:

  • Swipe Left: Hide/show Dock
  • Swipe Right: Shows Properties/info for the selected file/folder
  • Swipe Down : Minimize app
  • Swipe Up: Close App

 

Edges:
Its is performed using one (or) two finger(s) by swiping from the edge of the touchpad to the middle (Swipe IN) 
(or) middle of the touchpad to the edge (Swipe OUT). And Swipe OUT works only after swipe IN in reverse without finger lift.

  • Left Edge Swipe:
    Performs Left and Right Desktop/App Switch for IN and OUT swipes (Apps will switch only when they are in Full Screen).
  • Right Edge Swipe:
    Opens (Swipe IN) and Closes (Swipe OUT) Notification centre.
  • Bottom Edge Swipe:
    Default disabled.
  • Top Edge Swipe:

7. ROTATION

 

Rotation works on photos to rotate them and in browser to reload page. We can do rotate in three ways:

 

  • Arc Rotation : 

Place a finger on the touchpad in a fixed position either at Left (or) Right corner and draw an arc at the corner opposite to the fixed finger position using second finger. Left arc does left rotate and right arc does right rotate.

  • Swipe Rotation :

Place a finger on the touchpad in a fixed position at middle of the touchpad vertically and swipe the second finger from up to down for rotating Right or from down to up for rotating left.

Place a finger on the touchpad in a fixed position at middle of the touchpad horizontally and swipe the second finger from left to right for rotating Right or from right to left for rotating left.

  • Circular Rotation : (Only for ELAN v3 hardware)

Place two fingers on the touchpad vertically and move them to right horizontal position to rotate right.

Place two fingers on the touchpad horizontally and move them to left vertical position to rotate left.

 

Customization:

You can configure rotation with the following plist options. Located at IOKitPersonalities->Smart-Pad->Preferences->Others in the plist.

  1. Rotation (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables rotate feature.
  2. CircularRotate (Yes/No) : Enables/Disables circular rotate feature.
  3. RotationDelta (Value 0 - 500) : Sets the delta (movement) needed from moving finger to trigger rotate. 
  4. RotationMaxCFDelta (Value 0 - 500) : Sets the max delta (movement) allowed for the fixed finger in detecting rotate. Some high sensitive touchpad might need higher values to work better.
  5. PinchRotateMinSamples (Value 0 - 10) : Sets the minimum number of samples needed to detect rotate. 

NOTE: I did my best to get this working as much as possible and works very well if you do the gesture like i explained. And you have to keep the first finger on the touchpad for 1-2 secs before rotating with other finger which I've used to avoid conflicts with other features. Will try to improve this in future as far as possible.
