Looking for a program that uses mouse movements as hotkeys

13 Feb 2015, 20:02

I am looking for a program that can recognize a mouse movement, like a zigzag up and down five times in two seconds, and then execute an abritrary script. In other words, like AHK but uses mouse movements as hotkeys.

I seem to recall this being a standalone program you could download at one point, but I can't find anything - at least I don't want to search far into google, so I will see if anyone here knows it.

The reason I want this is because sometimes I just want to use the mouse, usually when I am reading, but have to periodically do actions switch documents or something.

You can use AHK as well http://ahkscript.org/docs/scripts/MouseGestures.htm - just google mouse gesture autohotkey for a variety of other scripts. Strokeit might the name of the program you were looking for.

In this link the user pajenn made a variation of the original script. Works that variation of the script?
I think he wanted to paint the path on the screen but it is impossible for me to run the script.
Everything is possible!
