Key combination bind failure - identify conflicting program?

When a key combination bind failure is reported, is there any way to identify the conflicting program so I can make a better decision as to whether to clear the current binding? Thanks.

There isn't, unfortunately. We use the Windows global hotkeys API to register the hotkeys, and when we try to register a hotkey, the API doesn't say which program currently has it, it just says "it's already in use." :(

Sorry!

Does DisplayFusion (or ClipboardFusion, which I also have) have any ability to monitor mouse cursor location in a way that I could use to trigger a function? Or does it only have the ability to monitor mouse button inputs?

Also, I know that the mouse middle button can be used like Control+Win+x - can other mouse buttons be used alone or in combination to trigger functions?

There isn't a way to fire Triggers on mouse location, no. I will add that to our feature request list though.

Right now the middle-click move works using mouse hooks, but we don't hook the other mouse buttons because they would interfere with normal operations. Sorry!

Let me suggest that you allow use of other mouse hooks in ways that would not interfere with normal operation--say, by combining them with modifier keys (shift + left click) or by limiting their use to unusual patterns (pressing both L+R at once). And/or, allow the user to define trigger using the middle mouse button + modifier keys. Even just doing that last one, which I can't think of any reason not to do, would be useful to me b/c I wouldn't have to put both hands on the keyboard.

Ah ok, that's an interesting idea for sure. I've added that to our feature request list, and we'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it.

Thanks!
