@StupidIdeait works really good. Give it a try and publish a beta? If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Hard pushing is very intuitive, so it's the best way to activate some gestures. Perhaps it would be useful if there is a chance to integrate a long Klick before a swipe etc? (For the beginning)

Can you explain what you mean by "make navigation support toggle One Hand Mode"?
Can you give have an example of actions you want to chain? I can't think of many case where it would be useful.

MIUI 8(or better) have function "OneHandMode". For activation this function need swipe Home and Back, or Home and Menu. But if softbar is disabled this can not be done. Can u add support for gisture-action-OneHandMode?

Does Next tab/Previous tab actions work in Firefox for anyone? Close tab and Scroll to Top work fine, but next and previous tab do not. Firefox desktop supports Ctrl+PageUp/PageDown shortcut keys, so I was hoping it would be fine.

Or, is there any way to add a gesture to send a keystroke? I couldn't find one, but if there is, I could try sending Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab as an alternative, to see if that worked.

How do you take a still of the screen with the vid cast app you're using? (Although I assume it happened the same way before you recorded it)
Oh and evaluate on release under advanced is on? And there aren't any conflicting gestures in your launcher?

Sorry that I was unclear.

With respect to my first question, I was wondering if the way you take a screen shot in your vid-recording app involves executing a gesture by any chance which might be interfering with the troublesome GMD swipe-down gesture you captured in the video. A long shot, I know, but I just had to ask. You probably take a screenshot in that app by pressing a physical button?

In my second question, I was referring to when you create a gesture in GMD, at the bottom of the page there are advanced settings, one of which is "evaluate on release". I always check this, and feel that it contributes to eliminating conflicts among similar gestures.

My third thought was about the possibility that you may have set up a conflicting gesture in your launcher, but you have shown that such is not the case.

Android seems to kick the App out of memory after a while and I have to restart it. Anyone else experiencing this?
Using OxygenOS based on Oreo 8.0 and the OnePlus 3.

Device Setup error

Hi, I use this app since I use smartphones, it's so cool.

But, I have an issue now. I'm using Resurrecion Remix Oreo (8.1) on OnePlus 3t, but no gestures are working. There is an issue with Device Setup. I tried all combinations on the Device Setup window, but no solution.

Error message says: No supported multitouch device detected! Please go to Device Setup and try to setup it manually.

I'm using Magisk root, and gave the app root permitions.

Any help?

Same here, with OOS beta on OnePlus 5T

Edit: battery optimization is turned off for GMD

I also don't know of a way how to keep certain Apps in memory even when using Xposed. There was a Module that could do this called "App Settings" but it doesn't work with Oreo.

Same problem here Oneplus 5T 5.0.3,.Magisk. Currently having to force stop GMD and restart several times a day after GMD stops functioning. (Just starting GMD doesn't fix the issue)

Actually, to be more precise, sometimes GMD stops functioning and just relaunching it doesn't fix the issue - only relaunching it after force stopping it restores it's functioning.
Other times, just relaunching GMD is enough. (The Force Stop button is greyed out in this case which I assume indicates GMD is no longer running)
Would appreciate very much if the developer investigates and resolves this issue as no other gesture type tool that I have found has the same level of functionality and usefulness for me.

    Thanks, PhilipTD, for generous donation :highfive:
    As a sigh on gratitude I built you latest development version of Gesture Control with Lollipop support. This is the first time I'm sending someone lollipop update.
    Quite a few features do not work but still it is usable :eek:
    Please let me know if you did not receive it.

    Progress update:
    I'm currently working on Spen Control lollipop support but a lot of internal thing are common. However UI part is separate and while I updated Spen Control to 'material', GC is still holo.
    I will be releasing SPen Control first with refreshed ui and lollipop support but I want to make bigger update for GC and add/rework many things that were discussed here or I just have in mind. Some things are already implemented but need to be merged into master some still need to be done. Main idea is to clean up GC so it is more intuitive to new users but more advanced features still will be available when digging deeper into settings.
    1) One good example would be path and recorded gestures. In new version I want to join them in one dialog. So user can pick from predefined set of path gestures (swipe left, swipe right, double tap, expand, pinch, etc.) or record it but entering custom path string still will be accessible. At the moment it is confusing for new users they would they want to enter path instead of recording (pinch for example).
    2) Another example is launchpad settings. Currently its confusing that you have to select which launchpad you want to configure. In new version settings will be accessible directly from launchpad instead and configure particular launchpad.
    3) Blacklist - each gesture will have option to select apps where it is active/inactive. General blacklist will be simplified where you can select if gestures are enabled/disabled in homescreen, apps, lockscreen and keyboard.
    4) Default gestures - I will remove default gestures tab and pre-create these in User Gestures for new users. Lite version will have limited number of available actions but users still can change gestures for these actions.
    5) Settings, touch consumption, Advanced tabs, Help will be moved to menu. App will be Gestures view.
    6) Touch Consumption - after user multitouch screen several times with 3 or more fingers but do not execute any gesture app will popup a tutorial explaining touch consumption with link to settings. Now quite a few new users are confused why their effort at Fruit Ninja does not give any result.
    7) Reviewing/regrouping/fixing actions - so far I was just throwing in new actions. Some didn't work on particular android versions, others didn't work on some devices. I haven't decided how it will be done but I want to clean it up. I want to add plugins support too (downloadable from play store) so some really niche things or some bigger complex thing could be moved there.
    8) Backup/Import/Export - long time promised, its time to add it.

    While such things don't add much for experienced users it will improve overall 'quality' of the app.

    Why cant I just release an old version with lollipop support? I don't have such version. I added lollipop support to half broken/work in progress version and I intend to move forward instead of backporting it. Its not just SeLinux/root issues that needed to be fixed. Some internal Api changed, recent apps work differently, etc, etc. It will be released when ready. Family > full time job > Android (4-20 hours per week).

    Thanks hasenbein1966, for donation :highfive:

    Update:
    Currently Launchpad and Blacklist are completely broken. UI is mix of material and holo. There are still some issues with recent apps. I will create alpha version G+ channel (without support) for lollipop version when I have more stable build.
