    Smart; I like this. We would likely consider this as part of a larger feature request: Monogram keys as modifiers affecting other Monogram modules.

    Immediate workaround is to create two mostly identical profiles, the only difference is one has Orbiter set to tiltMode 1 or 2, one set to tiltMode 0. Switching between profiles will change the Orbiter behaviour from allowing X/Y bleed (tiltMode 1 is partial, tiltMode 2 is full) and snapping to a single axis (tiltMode 0).

    This is quite likely very doable with a Monogram key. Curious to get your thoughts: would you rather have this key work like a modifier key (ie press and hold while actuating Orbiter) or like a toggle switch (ie press to engage, press again to disengage)?

    RE the shift modifier: We likely can't do this with shift unless Creator listened for it as a global hotkey. That's dangerous as it will cause complications for folks who use their keyboard + console side-by-side (most Monogram owners). With that in mind, I think your suggestion of a Monogram key is the way forward.

    Okay, so in theory if I had two orbiters, I wouldn't have to switch between the two profiles?

    Working a Monogram key, I would prefer it t be a modifier, so only locking the dimensions while pressed down. In my work it's usually only for short, random actions that I need a dimensions lock.

    Hopefully this feature can be adapted soon! I've been looking for a reason to purchase another essential keys module.

    Gotcha! Given that a few folks are already asking about this, I'm logging a feature request for us to consider as part of a larger modifier keys implementation.

    RE Two orbiters: that's correct. Whether you have 1 Orbiter and 2 profiles or 2 Orbiters and 1 profile, the end result is that you'll have one option where the disc mapping is more omnidirectional and responsive off-axis, and one where the disc mapping is only responsive on-axis.
