HIP DigitalWatch Key Editor Plugin (Freeware)

A Self-Extracting HIP plug-in to enable easy editing of DigitalWatch keys

This plugin was created to give HIP users easy access to the Keys.ini file that is used to control the keys used by DigitalWatch.

It has several advantages, including:
The ability to define keys using your input device directly (without knowing the scan codes)
Duplicate declaration checks Edit Function Parameters Enable/Disable declarations

DigitalWatch Usage If you have HIP installed, simply copy this file to the SAME directory as HIP. Then if you open up the Application Options dialog (by clicking on the icon next to Digital Watch entry), you will have access to the "Application Properties" button.

What does it do The program reads the Keys.ini file and displays all of the valid entries which you may edit, or use the inbuilt Key-learner (point and learn) to create new definitions.

When you save the file, the original Keys.ini is copied to Keys.bak before the changes are saved.

If you are using this option with HIP, then a DigitalWatch.hpg file is also created to allow you to quickly reassign keys directly from HIP so you can have 2 configurations (one which is keyboard friendly, and another which is HIP friendly).

Note: This software is Beta, and is not supported or sponsored by the developers of DigitalWatch. Should the developer change the structure of the Keys.ini file, it may not work (although new functions may be added to the file without any problems).
