Messed up Key-Shortcuts

Hi,

I have got a problem: When I make a keystroke with: cmd+T controllermate on mac make a shift+pad+"+" out of my command.
Why?
Here you can see what I mean:

Please help! It also make those strange thing e.g. when I just make an "m" as a single key building block - I just select the "m" and it delivers a "+m".

Very useless though.

Re: Messed up Key-Shortcuts

Typically if non-programmed keystrokes are being sent with ControllerMate it may mean that the memory of the device already has macros in it before ControllerMate gets to it. Have you ever used this on a Windows machine, or perhaps purchased it used or directly from Amazon? Either of those could explain the behavior.

Do you have a Windows machine available? It would be required to clear the memory, and also to check the memory.

Additionally you may want to make sure there is no other programming within ControllerMate. All pages except the ones you are using should be disabled.

Great - thanks for the fast reply! Yes - I bought it used. So how can I clean the memory? And yes - I do have both - mac and windows.
