You can read more about it [on Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_keys). +Mouse keys supports two different modes to move the cursor: -The default speed for controlling the mouse with the keyboard is intentionally slow. You can adjust these parameters by adding these settings to your keymap's `config.h` file. All times are specified in milliseconds (ms). +* **Accelerated (default):** Holding movement keys accelerates the cursor until it reaches its maximum speed. +* **Constant:** Holding movement keys moves the cursor at constant speeds. -``` -#define MOUSEKEY_DELAY 300 -#define MOUSEKEY_INTERVAL 50 -#define MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED 10 -#define MOUSEKEY_TIME_TO_MAX 20 -#define MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_MAX_SPEED 8 -#define MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_TIME_TO_MAX 40 -``` +The same principle applies to scrolling. -#### `MOUSEKEY_DELAY` +Configuration options that are times, intervals or delays are given in milliseconds. Scroll speed is given as multiples of the default scroll step. For example, a scroll speed of 8 means that each scroll action covers 8 times the length of the default scroll step as defined by your operating system or application. -When one of the mouse movement buttons is pressed this setting is used to define the delay between that button press and the mouse cursor moving. Some people find that small movements are impossible if this setting is too low, while settings that are too high feel sluggish. +### Accelerated mode -#### `MOUSEKEY_INTERVAL` +This is the default mode. You can adjust the cursor and scrolling acceleration using the following settings in your keymap’s `config.h` file: -When a movement key is held down this specifies how long to wait between each movement report. Lower settings will translate into an effectively higher mouse speed. +|Define |Default|Description | +|----------------------------|-------|---------------------------------------------------------| +|`MOUSEKEY_DELAY` |300 |Delay between pressing a movement key and cursor movement| +|`MOUSEKEY_INTERVAL` |50 |Time between cursor movements | +|`MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED` |10 |Maximum cursor speed at which acceleration stops | +|`MOUSEKEY_TIME_TO_MAX` |20 |Time until maximum cursor speed is reached | +|`MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_MAX_SPEED` |8 |Maximum number of scroll steps per scroll action | +|`MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_TIME_TO_MAX`|40 |Time until maximum scroll speed is reached | -#### `MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED` +Tips: -As a movement key is held down the speed of the mouse cursor will increase until it reaches `MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED`. +* Setting `MOUSEKEY_DELAY` too low makes the cursor unresponsive. Setting it too high makes small movements difficult. +* For smoother cursor movements, lower the value of `MOUSEKEY_INTERVAL`. If the refresh rate of your display is 60Hz, you could set it to `16` (1/60). As this raises the cursor speed significantly, you may want to lower `MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED`. +* Setting `MOUSEKEY_TIME_TO_MAX` or `MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_TIME_TO_MAX` to `0` will disable acceleration for the cursor or scrolling respectively. This way you can make one of them constant while keeping the other accelerated, which is not possible in constant speed mode. -#### `MOUSEKEY_TIME_TO_MAX` +Cursor acceleration uses the same algorithm as the X Window System MouseKeysAccel feature. You can read more about it [on Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_keys). -How long you want to hold down a movement key for until `MOUSEKEY_MAX_SPEED` is reached. This controls how quickly your cursor will accelerate. +### Constant mode -#### `MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_MAX_SPEED` +In this mode you can define multiple different speeds for both the cursor and the mouse wheel. There is no acceleration. `KC_ACL0`, `KC_ACL1` and `KC_ACL2` change the cursor and scroll speed to their respective setting. -The top speed for scrolling movements. +You can choose whether speed selection is momentary or tap-to-select: -#### `MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_TIME_TO_MAX` +* **Momentary:** The chosen speed is only active while you hold the respective key. When the key is raised, mouse keys returns to the unmodified speed. +* **Tap-to-select:** The chosen speed is activated when you press the respective key and remains active even after the key has been raised. The default speed is that of `KC_ACL1`. There is no unmodified speed. -How long you want to hold down a scroll key for until `MOUSEKEY_WHEEL_MAX_SPEED` is reached. This controls how quickly your scrolling will accelerate. +The default speeds from slowest to fastest are as follows: +* **Momentary:** `KC_ACL0` < `KC_ACL1` < *unmodified* < `KC_ACL2` +* **Tap-to-select:** `KC_ACL0` < `KC_ACL1` < `KC_ACL2` -## Configuring the Behavior of Mousekeys with 3-speed constant movement +To use constant speed mode, you must at least define `MK_3_SPEED` in your keymap’s `config.h` file: -In your keymap's `config.h`, you must add the line: -``` +```c #define MK_3_SPEED ``` -Then you can precisely define 3 different speeds for both the cursor and the mouse wheel, and also whether speed selection is momentary or tap-to-select. -For each speed, you can specify how many milliseconds you want between reports(interval), and how far you want to it to move per report(offset). -For example: +To enable momentary mode, also define `MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL`: -``` -#define MK_3_SPEED -#define MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL // comment this out for tap-to-select acceleration -// cursor speeds: -#define MK_C_OFFSET_SLOW 1 // pixels -#define MK_C_INTERVAL_SLOW 100 // milliseconds -#define MK_C_OFFSET_MED 4 -#define MK_C_INTERVAL_MED 16 -#define MK_C_OFFSET_FAST 12 -#define MK_C_INTERVAL_FAST 16 -// scroll wheel speeds: -#define MK_W_OFFSET_SLOW 1 // wheel clicks -#define MK_W_INTERVAL_SLOW 400 // milliseconds -#define MK_W_OFFSET_MED 1 -#define MK_W_INTERVAL_MED 200 -#define MK_W_OFFSET_FAST 1 -#define MK_W_INTERVAL_FAST 100 +```c +#define MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL ``` -Medium values will be used as the default or unmodified speed. -The speed at which both the cursor and scrolling move can be selected with KC_ACL0, KC_ACL1, KC_ACL2 for slow, medium, and fast. However, if you leave MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL defined then there is no need to ever send KC_ACL1, since that will be the unmodified speed. +Use the following settings if you want to adjust cursor movement or scrolling: + +|Define |Default |Description | +|---------------------|-------------|-------------------------------------------| +|`MK_3_SPEED` |*Not defined*|Enable constant cursor speeds | +|`MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL` |*Not defined*|Enable momentary speed selection | +|`MK_C_OFFSET_UNMOD` |16 |Cursor offset per movement (unmodified) | +|`MK_C_INTERVAL_UNMOD`|16 |Time between cursor movements (unmodified) | +|`MK_C_OFFSET_0` |1 |Cursor offset per movement (`KC_ACL0`) | +|`MK_C_INTERVAL_0` |32 |Time between cursor movements (`KC_ACL0`) | +|`MK_C_OFFSET_1` |4 |Cursor offset per movement (`KC_ACL1`) | +|`MK_C_INTERVAL_1` |16 |Time between cursor movements (`KC_ACL1`) | +|`MK_C_OFFSET_2` |32 |Cursor offset per movement (`KC_ACL2`) | +|`MK_C_INTERVAL_2` |16 |Time between cursor movements (`KC_ACL2`) | +|`MK_W_OFFSET_UNMOD` |1 |Scroll steps per scroll action (unmodified)| +|`MK_W_INTERVAL_UNMOD`|40 |Time between scroll steps (unmodified) | +|`MK_W_OFFSET_0` |1 |Scroll steps per scroll action (`KC_ACL0`) | +|`MK_W_INTERVAL_0` |360 |Time between scroll steps (`KC_ACL0`) | +|`MK_W_OFFSET_1` |1 |Scroll steps per scroll action (`KC_ACL1`) | +|`MK_W_INTERVAL_1` |120 |Time between scroll steps (`KC_ACL1`) | +|`MK_W_OFFSET_2` |1 |Scroll steps per scroll action (`KC_ACL2`) | +|`MK_W_INTERVAL_2` |20 |Time between scroll steps (`KC_ACL2`) | diff --git a/tmk_core/common/mousekey.c b/tmk_core/common/mousekey.c @@ -171,28 +171,31 @@ void mousekey_off(uint8_t code) { enum { - mkspd_slow, - mkspd_med, - mkspd_fast, + mkspd_unmod, + mkspd_0, + mkspd_1, + mkspd_2, mkspd_COUNT }; -static uint8_t mk_speed = mkspd_med; -#ifdef MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL -static uint8_t mkspd_DEFAULT = mkspd_med; +#ifndef MK_MOMENTARY_ACCEL +static uint8_t mk_speed = mkspd_1; +#else +static uint8_t mk_speed = mkspd_unmod; +static uint8_t mkspd_DEFAULT = mkspd_unmod; #endif static uint16_t last_timer_c = 0; static uint16_t last_timer_w = 0; uint16_t c_offsets[mkspd_COUNT] = { - MK_C_OFFSET_SLOW, MK_C_OFFSET_MED, MK_C_OFFSET_FAST + MK_C_OFFSET_UNMOD, MK_C_OFFSET_0, MK_C_OFFSET_1, MK_C_OFFSET_2 }; uint16_t c_intervals[mkspd_COUNT] = { - MK_C_INTERVAL_SLOW, MK_C_INTERVAL_MED, MK_C_INTERVAL_FAST + MK_C_INTERVAL_UNMOD, MK_C_INTERVAL_0, MK_C_INTERVAL_1, MK_C_INTERVAL_2 }; uint16_t w_offsets[mkspd_COUNT] = { - MK_W_OFFSET_SLOW, MK_W_OFFSET_MED, MK_W_OFFSET_FAST + MK_W_OFFSET_UNMOD, MK_W_OFFSET_0, MK_W_OFFSET_1, MK_W_OFFSET_2 }; uint16_t w_intervals[mkspd_COUNT] = { - MK_W_INTERVAL_SLOW, MK_W_INTERVAL_MED, MK_W_INTERVAL_FAST + MK_W_INTERVAL_UNMOD, MK_W_INTERVAL_0, MK_W_INTERVAL_1, MK_W_INTERVAL_2 }; @@ -254,9 +257,9 @@ void mousekey_on(uint8_t code) { else if (code == KC_MS_BTN3) mouse_report.buttons |= MOUSE_BTN3; else if (code == KC_MS_BTN4) mouse_report.buttons |= MOUSE_BTN4; else if (code == KC_MS_BTN5) mouse_report.buttons |= MOUSE_BTN5; - else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL0) mk_speed = mkspd_slow; - else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL1) mk_speed = mkspd_med; - else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL2) mk_speed = mkspd_fast; + else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL0) mk_speed = mkspd_0; + else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL1) mk_speed = mkspd_1; + else if (code == KC_MS_ACCEL2) mk_speed = mkspd_2; if (mk_speed != old_speed) adjust_speed(); } diff --git a/tmk_core/common/mousekey.h b/tmk_core/common/mousekey.h @@ -64,42 +64,54 @@ along with this program.
