    @Vlad

     

    Thank you for the reply, and for the all of the hard work you clearly put into the project.  For the record, I have mentioned several times both publicly and in emails to you that I would happily purchase a registered, non-expiring, signed version the moment it became available.

     

    I don't have a problem paying for useful utilities that I use, but I have to be able to use them before I can justify spending money.

     

    Can you provide some more specific goals on when "not-so-far future" would be?  Perhaps also set up a donation fund specifically for the driver signing certificate?  I have been waiting very patiently since October for such a release and so far there hasn't been a  path for getting a signed driver published.

     

    Signing the driver wouldn't take any more development time or changes to the software, so the only hurdle seems to be the moderate cost for the certificate itself.  Let's set up a clear guideline for how to get that done. :-)

    Dear Vladimir, here's my report: in this beta version 3 finger dragging is improved to an extent when I can use it as the primary and only dragging method. For instance, I can now select a single letter of text with comfort. In the past I had to use 2 finger drag with click for precision work. Now 3 finger drag has the same, if not better precision.

    Thank you very much! About scrolling: yes the Windows 8,1 built-in PDF viewer scrolls just fine now. Thanks again for all of your AWESOME work! Happy new year!

    Thank you yet again Vlad for an amazing update! A big thank you...

     

    The only thing I can suggest to add to the next build is to create an option to invert the direction of two finger swipe for back/forward, the one you just added in place of horizontal scrolling, so that back and forward can be made consistent with how OS X has its directional back/forward swiping (or not if desired).

     

    I will save up in the next few weeks in order to make a small donation or two. We greatly appreciate your hard and generous work!

    Another suggestion I thought of recently. I imagine you are probably also trying to figure out how to make it possible to have two finger swipe back/forward AND horizontal scrolling at some point. Perhaps until then make a temporary option to allow the user to hold down a key (fn maybe) to be able to scroll horizontally while held down, and when released, there is normal back/forward behavior with two fingers. I only say this because I forgot how much I still use horizontal scrolling (such as on the metro screen and in many metro apps). I am almost unable to sacrifice that feature for two finger back/forward!

    Dear Vlad, no way to quickly implement a 4-finger DRAG for middle click?

     

    I'd be happy to stick with 2 finger forward/backward, 3-finger drag for left click drag and finally 4-finger drag for middle click drag.

     

    That would be heaven on my macbook!

    To get the signed certificate, you have to pay MS some cash every year? Not a one-time fee is it? That's bad

    Excellent work Vlad!

     

    I'm having a bit of trouble with the back and forward gestures, regardless which method I try. I've tried 4-finger, 3-finger and 2-finger horizontal and vertical swipe for back and forward but nothing happens every time. Every other action works except back and forward navigation.

     

    I'm currently running version 3.0b on 64-bit Windows 8.1 on my late 2009 Macbook Pro Unibody.

     

    Once again, I'm thoroughly impressed by your work on this brilliant piece of software. I don't think I'll be able to use Bootcamp without it again.

    I found an annoying little bug with this latest version. I set 3-finger drag with the "no delay" option. However, when I restart the PC or close the lid or put it in sleep, as soon as I start it back, delay comes back. The tick box is still checked though. Then I have to open the module, uncheck and recheck the box to make it work as it should.

    This version is excellent! To me, three finger dragging has always been the most valuable gesture so what I'm experiencing now might be considered as an euphoria
