SpaceMouse Enterprise turn off screen

Post by andyn33 » Mon Mar 26, 2018 1:16 pm

Is there a way to turn off the screen, or disable the SpaceMouse Enterprise when not in use?
Would be good if this action could be linked to a macro key, or directly a button on the 3d mouse.

Thanks!

Hi Andyn33,

If you are not using any other 3Dconnexion devices, I think the simplest solution for what you are asking is simply to turn off the driver whenever you don't use the mouse (Windows=>3Dconnexion=>Stop driver), this will shut down the LCD.

I've heard before a request for having the LCD give an indication that the current app is not supported (like dimming it per application). It's an interesting request.

I added SME LCD On, Off, *2, /2 and Toggle functions for the next release.
They can be made global so they are always on the same button in every application.

Hi jwick,

thank you for your support.
Unfortunately I struggle to find the options in version 10.6.0 (mac) - are they already added?

Please inform me I this feature was plugged from the list, in which case I would consider swapping the SME for a SMP.

This is a Windows-only feature.

Do we have any idea when this feature will be available and how to find out how to actually do it when it is?
