Click Drag Hold then Release using midi button

I am trying to replicate a dragging action in a program. In the program, holding Shift-Ctrl-Option-Cmd activates the Measurement Tool then the user clicks and drags across the screen showing measurement values. These values remain visible until the trackpad/mouse is released.

I have been trying out the Move and Click and Drag action, where I am able to set the start point click, using the modifier keys, and use 'and drag to' to set the end point. I am using a midi controller to trigger the action.

Everything works but the issue I am running into is figuring out how to hold the click after it is dragged.

What I am trying to achieve:

  1. click midi button – set to 127
  2. run action – click and move and drag mouse from start to end position
  3. hold click at end position
  4. click midi button – set to 0
  5. release mouse

Is this possible with KM?

Hi, I'm trying to do something similar, but with a different use case. Did you manage to get this working?

All the best

Hi Rob. No, unfortunately, I didn't get this to work.

Ah, pity. Thanks for replying.

I'm trying to create a MIDI mouse using KM and TouchOSC, including a click+hold > move > release action going. Ain't easy :confused:

All the best
