MACROPAD not working with Google Meet shortcuts

by JonathanSCE on Sun Sep 26, 2021 6:04 pm

So when programing my MACROPAD using the MACROPAD Hotkeys code, the Control+Alt shortcuts do not work. For example:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
# 2nd row ----------
(0x000754, 'Chat   ', [Keycode.CONTROL, Keycode.ALT, 'c']),
(0x000754, 'People ', [Keycode.CONTROL, Keycode.ALT, 'p']),
(0x000754, 'Caption', ['c']),

The chat and people shortcuts do not work, but the caption one does. I also have a help shortcut that works as well.

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
0x04541B, 'Help   ', [Keycode.CONTROL, '/']),

The shortcuts work if I use my keyboard and the MACROPAD is sending the keycodes, Meet just won't accept them. I tried it on both Firefox and Chrome.

Is this on Windows? Since our MACROPAD Hotkeys guide was based on MacOS Safari you will probably need to play withthe CONTROL vs. COMMAND usage or other subtle key cahnges.

Does it make a difference to try this:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
(0x000754, 'Chat   ', [Keycode.COMMAND, Keycode.ALT, 'c']),
(0x000754, 'People ', [Keycode.COMMAND, Keycode.ALT, 'p']),


You could start by copying one of the examples in the macros folder. Give it a descriptive name…and, if you’ll be sharing this with others, consider mentioning right in the filename what system it’s for, since key sequences vary among platforms (e.g. COMMAND vs. CONTROL on Mac vs Windows).

It is a Windows 10 computer and other commands do work in other programs, like Firefox and Outlook. I even made a custom shortcut in another program (DisplayFusion) just to check that Control+Alt+C works from the MACROPAD.

The code you provided does not work.
