Hot Connect Settings
|Contents | Search | Support | Jarte Home|
The commonly used Hot Connect settings are controlled through the Hot Connect Options window. Additional settings for the Hot Connect feature are described here. These settings are found in the [Hot Connect] section of the advanced settings file.
Hot Connect normally transfers text between Jarte and hot connected windows as unformatted plain text, but there are exceptions where rich text is used. If these exceptions cause problems then set the Plain Text setting to "1" to ensure plain text transfers are always used:
The default value is "0":
Hot Key Delay
The Hot Connect feature is triggered as soon as the Hot Connect hot key is pressed. However, Jarte must wait for the user to release the hot key before text can be transferred from the hot connected window to Jarte. Jarte can detect when the hot key (e.g., F7) is released, but if the Alt, Ctrl, and/or Shift keys are being used with the hot key then Jarte can not detect when those keys are released. Therefore, Jarte waits a prescribed amount of time after the hot key is released for the Alt, Ctrl, and/or Shift keys to be released as well. By default, Jarte waits 0.7 seconds for the Alt, Ctrl, and/or Shift keys to be released after it detects the hot key has been released. If the user continues to press the Alt, Ctrl, and/or Shift keys longer than that then Jarte will fail to properly transfer text from the hot connected window to Jarte.
The Hot Key Delay setting can be used to increase or decrease the time Jarte waits for the Alt, Ctrl, and/or Shift keys to be released after the hot key is released. The value of this setting is specified in millisecond units (1000 milliseconds equals 1 second). For example, the delay period can be reduced to 0.3 seconds by changing the setting to 300:
Hot Key Delay=300
The default value is "700" (0.7 seconds):
Hot Key Delay=700
Jarte introduces a slight delay after switching focus between Jarte and the hot connected window and before transferring text. This delay is necessary to ensure the switch between windows is completed before the text transfer is initiated. If cases are encountered where the length of the delay is insufficient to allow proper text transfer then the Switch Delay setting can be increased to resolve the problem. The value of this setting is specified in millisecond units (1000 milliseconds equals 1 second). For example, the delay period can be increased to 0.2 seconds by changing the setting to 200:
The default value is "100" (0.1 seconds):
