Delete Mapping in 3dxware 10.1.0

Post by spainman » Sun Jun 08, 2014 5:54 am

Simple question: How can I remove a button mapping? I want to assign 'nothing' to certain buttons. Can't find how to do it...
Thanks in advance.

Hello spainman,

currently this is not available. Can you explain why you need this possibility?

Thanks,

That's bad. Hope you add it in future releases!
It's simply a function that was there in previous releases and that I really miss with 3dxware 10.
Not all buttons can be set to functions that make sense for all possible applications. Setting a certain button to do nothing in a certain application is a normal thing to do! Actually WHY a user could need such a simple to implement option is the wrong question - the question is WHY remove the feature - specially when it existed before. I can't imagine that you guys don't see the use case yourself...

You can probably do this yourself with notepad. The 3DxSmartUI GUI can't help you.
Assign the button to something you can recognize, e.g., 3Dconnexion->Decrease Sensitivity.
Then edit the Cfg file (in %appdata%) with notepad.
Find the button you just made and null out it's Output/ActionID:

Code: Select all

        <Button>
          <Input>
            <ActionID>HIDButton_14</ActionID>
          </Input>
          <Output>
            <ActionID></ActionID>
          </Output>
        </Button>

Thank you for the suggestion. It's not very practical but at least there is way to do it :-)

There is now a "Disabled" option in the Buttons panel to disable a button (does nothing).
