I'm trying to add a Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave keyboard to keyTouch editor 3.2.0 beta. It works pretty good, but there are 5 extra keys on the Wave that the Editor does not notice at all. These are:

- The one furthest down on the left side (Big button beneath the Zoom buttons, with three stacked windows on it)
- The one in the upper left corner (With a window and a cog on it)
- Fn+F11 (Battery icon)
- Fn+Print Screen (context menu icon)
- Fn+Pause/Break (scroll lock icon, I think)

Just wanted to let you know. It's not a deal breaker, but would be nice to have it fixed. :)

Thanks for a great app!

    I also have a Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave. Some other buttons do not send scancodes: Media Center, Camera. From what I can tell by some research, eitther the CD need to be sent some command for it to begin sending scancodes or the scancodes it does send get lost in the lower layers of the BIOS or OS. My guess is the former as some IBM keyboards are like that and this problem seems to exist with many different bios-linux system implementations. Keytouch cannot do anything with these buttons until the application layer begins to receive them.
