Lights on modifier press

Is there a way to light up certain keys when a specific modifier is pressed? For example, if I hold CTRL I want to light up the letter S (this would change depending on the active application/profile)

 

In fact, I'm looking for something almost exactly like this, but doesnt seem to be possible anymore in the latest version of the software: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=160012

 

The closest I can get is to create a Solid lighting effect and only light up the keys I want, but the problem is that the lights show when ANY of the keys are pressed, when I only want them to light when the modifier is held

You need profile switching while pressed or to use timers creatively but I would say the former is the best bet at the moment you need each modifier combination to be a profile with individual lighting you want in each application. It takes time to build properly.

 

In the Default profile make both ctrl keys go to ctrl profile with a profile switching while pressed via direct selection. Same with alt to go to alt and shift to the shift profile. Then do the combinations like from ctrl set alt to go to ctrl alt and shift to go to ctrl shift. All of these should have while pressed enabled

wow thats the only way to do it in CUE3? seems like a workaround more than an actual feature because youre going to need (at least) 4 separate profiles for each application...

 

did they remove the Mode feature?

I did not read my own quote earlier (insert heckerman meme).

 

I forgot that subsequent modes should not have while pressed enabled so that you can have the program switch back when you release the first pressed modifier key even if you do not release it in the exact same order.

 

I'm not sure I understand what CorsairJames referred to, but the modes are/were basically the same as profiles. It is still pretty great to colorize modifier key combos in your favorite applications. I only do it for photoshop currently but I could see branching out as my custom hotkeys in certain applications are getting harder to remember (outlook being probably chief among them).
