HidMacros question

Hello all, I have two questions about HidMacros, hopefully they haven't been asked before

Is there a reason why HidMacros doesn't recognise the difference between the left and right centric keyboard buttons? for instance if I look in the log of EventGhost with the keyboard plugin loaded I can see the following outputted when either the left or right Ctrl buttons are pressed:


but in HidMacros I see that both the left and right buttons share the same event code/number

The other question I wanted to ask was does HidMacors support more than 2 keyboards? for some reason I think I read somewhere that that was a limitation but now I can't find it, and I'm not sure where that idea came from


and thanks for sharing HidMacros :)

ad 1) no, there's no specific reason. I simply don't read the flag indicating left or right version of shift key. So it's just not implemented, but should be possible to add
ad 2) no, there's no limitation to 2 keyboards/devices. I personally use HIDmacros with 3 keyboards and 2 joysticks

So is this something that you will add in the the future then?
