Upgrade precision touchpad

After releasing a new version of our measurement software OXYGEN last week (more about version 5.7 here), we again have good news for DEWETRON users. This time, we worked hard to further improve the user experience when working with a DEWE3-A4 which for instance includes a free touchpad upgrade to the precision touchpad newly released by Microsoft.


What about the touchpad has changed?

In short, the current touchpad configuration recognizes the touchpad of the DEWE3-A4 as a USB mouse. However, this entails that currently available gestures differ from the ones known on laptops. Due to the new upgrade to Microsoft‘s precision touchpad, that changes. In addition, the upgrade enables further features, however, it also changes some of its functionalities. Therefore, you can find an overview of the differences in the table below.

In addition to the changes explained in the table above, the new upgrade unlocks further features through various gestures such as single- or two-finger clicks, etc. So, to see the entire range of possibilities, navigate to the Windows system settings of your measurement system, go to the devices section and click on the touchpad option in the list on the left side of the pop-up window. You can see an overview in the screenshot below.
