Lock mapping by default, to stop accidental right clicks

Add a lock/unlock button to the controller assignment window, which turns right-click mapping off/on. Default it to locked.


It's very easy for both novice and experienced users to accidentally right click controls on-screen (eg when in the dark in a club, using a trackpad where the right mouse button is so easy to knock) without meaning to.

This comes up so many times on the forum - where people are saying that XYZ button no longer works.

I suggest:

- Adding a lock/unlock button inside the controller assignments window

- Making the default state "locked"

- This button means that people who are happy to leave it unlocked all the time, can still do so, if they are willing to take the risk

- Everyone else can just toggle it on/off as needed, and make sure it's locked again after they've made their changes.

An alternative implementation would be something like Ableton Live does - whereby there is a toolbar button in the main window, that when pressed, activates "mapping mode", and everything changes colour to make it more obvious then just accidentally right clicking on controls.

  1. PLEASE! I am constantly screwing up my settings - I don't know how most of the time.

    I bet half of user complaints about things not working right are attributable to this easily preventable problem.

  2. This happens to me quite often. Stupid Windows machine with the right click button adjacent to the regular left click button. I now know what happened, but still have to go through the steps to fix that one errant tap.

  3. This is a great idea, maybe a confirm after the right click and map?
