Other shortcut keys

Is it possible to assign other shortcut keys so that I do not need to use a mouse/touch screen?

I am looking to just have some simple buttons that the users press that for instance just prints the photo etc.

    You can set up any Button(s) you use for the key commands
    in the Settings > Keyboard section. [see attached]

    Hi John.
    Thanks for replying.  The shortcut I am wanting to set is the ability to print the photo.
    The photo has been taken and then it gives the option to print and the number but there doesn't seem to be a way of triggering the print button.

    Sounds like you are using the print copies shortcut. That only changes
    the number of print copies before the you start a photo session, so
    you if you have automatic printing enabled it will use the print
    copies you have set.

    Maybe you wanted "Reprint last photo" which will print the photo
    layout created during the last session? See attached screenshot.

    Hi John.

    Its the "OK" button I want to assign to an external button if possible? I think I could record a macro to press the button but that adds a layer of unknown.

    Having tried what seems every type of photo booth software over the last few days this is the only one that seems to come close in the functionality that I want/desire but it just seems to fall at this point.

    I realise I could send it to print automatically but I would rather give the user the option to print the photo if they wanted.

    You can trigger the OK button with the enter key press.

    But you the enter key may only work in newer versions of Sparkbooth. Your
    screenshot looks like a much older version.

    ah! I think I have miss configured something!

    I have just installed it on my computer at home and the enter key works! yet the version I am fiddling with at the office doesn't respond to the enter key.

    The screenshot I posted was from an image from the internet I found as I didn't have it installed locally here.

    I will re-install on the machine in the office and try again. out of interest do the other onscreen buttons respond to key presses?
