iCue temporary profile switch doesn't work

Hi!

I wanted to do a multi key macro activation (like pressing ctrl + F1) and I read that the only way is to create a profile to activate temporary while holding Ctrl and then in the new profile put the macro on F1.

I want to do it but when I assign to a key the profile switch with the "While Pressed" checkbox active it switches to the new profile but it doesn't return to the original one when i release the key!

 

Just to be sure here are my settings: https://i.imgur.com/bmynhI9.png

I haven't pressed the "Assign action to profiles in the same folder" button btw

 

Is the application bugged (I'm on the latest version, 3.34.161) or am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks in advance

I think we have a lingering glitch left over from 3.33. In that version, any other input interrupted the macro. In 3.34, several users have reported a problem with any hold or 'while pressed' macro. If it's urgent to fix this, you'll need to go back to 3.32. Remember you can't take your current settings and profiles with you and you'll need to delete your user settings on the uninstall (checkbox option).

Another workaround would be to set a reciprocal macro in the other profile to direct switch back to Profile A. It still will not work on release and will make the trigger key act like a toggle, but that might be easier than rolling back on the software and needing to re-import profiles and settings.

i am super curious to know why they messed with the macro behavior at all - was it to fix a different bug? i picture that code base as a rat's nest with no unit or regression testing :(
