(as you might already know…) The usual behavior of Microsoft Windows and touch screens is this: the Microsoft operating system sends to the app (sends to SuperLab) a “Left Mouse Button Down” signal when a screen tap occurs.
Considering what the usual expected behavior is, and considering what you are experiencing instead, this all leads me to wondering about the following:
~ Does the Yoga 2 laptop model somehow come configured for a behavior other than the “tap-is-synonymous-with-left-click” behavior?
~ Is there something about how you touch the screen on an experiment that is signalling something else (like perhaps a “drag” or “pinch” action) instead of a “tap”?
~ Is there something about your system setup or operating system version that changes the “tap-is-synonymous-with-left-click” behavior?
I am glad you included the information that touching the screen does appear to work during Preview. However, the contrast in behavior between the Preview screen and the running experiment is not enough to lead me straight to a diagnosis just yet.
Please let me know the following information so I can research this issue further:
What is the precise version of SuperLab 5 being used? 5.0.0? 5.0.3? 5.0.4? (You can find the precise version in the “About” menu.)
What exact version of Windows operating system is being used?
(just to be certain), did the old laptop have a touch screen? (I am guessing that it did not, but i would like to confirm my understanding.)
Can you attach a sample sl5 experiment file to this forum thread? Attach any experiment you have that is failing to respond to a tap when you run the experiment.
There is one other question I have, and it relates to the “matrix” of possibilities that you have tried, by testing on various combinations of old-laptop/new-laptop and old-superlab/new-superlab. There is one combination that would be particularly interesting, and I do not believe you have commented on this combo yet:
- Have you tried running SuperLab 4.5 on the new laptop? (old-superlab & new-laptop)
Even if you have no remaining 4.5 licenses, you could download 4.5 in 30-day trial mode (from here: http://www.superlab.com/v4/downloadit.htm ), and try to create a touch screen experiment in 4.5 on the new Yoga laptop. The outcome of this could be instructive.
Finally, I would see if you can achieve any change in behavior by manipulating your Control Panel settings. On the windows Control Panel, you should be able to search for:
“Pen and Touch” settings.
“Press and Hold” settings.
Perhaps adjusting the speed and sensitivity for certain touch gestures might make a difference? The problem may indeed run deeper than a simple fix to the settings, but it is worth trying.
