Customizable virtual keyboard utility.

Overview

Hot Mouse Flower is a customizable virtual keyboard utility.

The virtual key panel, the Flower, is triggered with a custom shortcut key and will appear in front of all application windows. The virtual key panel is arranged in a flower pattern centered on the current cursor position, for quick access to any of the keys. Clicking on a key will send that key to the fore-most application, simultaneously holding down one or more modifier keys will combine them with the clicked Flower key, this allows you to trigger multiple Hot Key combinations with the same single Hot Mouse Flower key.

The Flower will stay open so you can repeat click a key or several keys after each other. Moving the cursor over the Exit zone will instantly hide the Flower, without the need of a mouse click. Tapping the Escape key will also close the Flower.

  • Perfect for mouse lovers, one hand on the keyboard and one on your mouse.
  • Keeps your focus on the screen.
  • Improves productivity.

The Hot Mouse Flower app is free, and if you like using it, we’d love to receive small donations to help fund further development.

Do I understand this right - if I wanted to use this application i. e. for F12 I first have to use a keyboard shortcut to have this come up and then I have to click onto F12? Wouldn't it be easier and more productive just to press the F12 key from the beginning? I do not understand what this application is supposed to be good for.

I agree with you. This really doesn't sound like "Keeps your hand on your mouse or track pad." Once it's triggered, yes, it might be useful if you want to execute several additional commands. But the starting point works against the logic of having this. However, if it could be activated via a hot corner, then one could have a truly "mouse or track pad only" experience.

I am sure you can set the global hotkey to a mouse key like a thumb key :) ... or a 3 finger tap or whatever you can use for hotkeys on your system.

Hi guys, Thanks for your comments. Just wanted to say that I may not have described the app as well as I should. The reason I wrote that you can keep you hand on your mouse is that, in my situation, I always have my left hand on the left-side of the keyboard ready to hold modifiers etc., then I launch the Flower with the F1 key (or choose any key on the left side) and I can trigger the virtual keys with my mouse with or without any modifiers that I can hold down with my left hand. First 10 people to email me a better way to change my "keep your hand on your mouse or trackpad" description get a free promocode for the full version of the app. Feature requests also welcome! info@hotmouseflower.com
