I kept the data in the same
TWIDDLER.KEY file the past 12 days. It worked flawlessly and recorded 23536 characters, 3732 words, average to ~300 words/day!
While trout converted the bulk of the text, I also used the
N+S 000M Print Recorded Data feature to extract the data for comparison.
I ran into a few interesting gotchas with the playback combo:
- Halfway through the playback, it got stuck in the CapsLock mode, and printed the remaining text in all CAPS
- One day I triggered the NumLock by accident, resulting lots of gibberish. In my case, I also have the cursor movement chords in the NUM layer. This ended moving the cursor all over the previously printed text and scattered the new text among them. The good news is Untethered Record Mode literally records all chords. I plan to add a feature in a future version of trout to reference to a given config file so it can potentially reconstruct the text.
@tony In addition to switching the recorded file with a combo, a refinement to Print Recorded Data will be to filter the following keys which modifies the content during a playback:
<BackSpace>, ↑, ↓, →, ← ,
<CapsLock>. This will result a much more humanly readable print out.
