Default Tutorial - How to bind a key combination to a single key

I've been searching for information on how to do this and haven't found anything.. Until I figured out on my own today...

Currently (Unless I don't see the option) there is no way to simply rebind a single key to an alternate key combination....

Example: Bind "Shift + W" to the UpArrow. So when I hold the up arrow my character will run (Shift being the run modifier).. Attempting to achieve this using normal macro or keystroke actions I end up with the action only triggering once, nothing, or my character convulsing on the screen due to the Action repeat options....

I have found a way to fix this (hopefully this hasn't been posted before and this helps some people or allow corsair to include this basic functionality in their software)..

Basically you will want to create to macros.. A "RUN" macro, and a "RUN Stop" macro.

1. Create a Macro Action called "RUN

2. Record your macro.. Press and release "SHIFT + W"

3. Delete the pause actions and the RELEASE actions.

4. Save the Macro and ignore the warning message...

5. It should look like this...

6. Create a second Macro Action called run stop.

7. Record your macro (Same as before).. Press and release "SHIFT + W"

8. This time delete the pause actions and the PRESS actions.

9. Save the Macro and ignore the warning message...

10. It should look like this...

11. You should have 2 macros.

12. Next. Go back and Edit "RUN" macro.

13. One the right hand side you will see an option for "DOUBLE MACROS"

14. Check the box to "enable a second macro on release"

15. Chose "RUN Stop" from the Macro drop down.

16. Save the macro

17. Assign this new Action to any key you want....

18. Done

Now as you hold the key down it will act like Shift + W... but when you release the key the second macro triggers to cancel the key press..

I would expect this would work with any number of keys or combinations...

Hope this helps someone.

Be careful not to switch modes or profiles when you haven't released yet.

Will this work for combining X and W as well?

When i try to remap the X key to W i always have to double tap the key for it to register. The X key is for jogging btw.
