Enterpad mistakenly reprogrammed
Hi! I have a problem an enterpad was mistakenly reprogrammed. We don't have the original file. Is it possible to copy the file from a working enterpad and load it to the malfunctioning enterpad.

You can use the keys of the working Enterpad to send the programmed string for each key to a new configuration file.

That’s all, if the programming of the working Enterpad only contains strings. If it contains non-string codes (e.g., Shift, Ctrl, F1, Enter), you will need something to translate them into strings for the configuration file. The following utility will translate common non-character codes received from an Enterpad or from a regular keyboard into strings:

The utility (KBTranslate) generates the following strings (for the corresponding non-character codes): “<shift>”, “<ctrl>”, “<alt>”, “<win>”, “<app>”, “<bksp>”, “<esc>”, “<prt>”, “<tab>”, “<cap>”, “<scrl>”, “<num>”, “<enter>”, “<eenter>”, “<F1>” to “<F24>”, “<eIns>”, “<eDel>”, “<eHome>”, “<eEnd>”, “<ePgup>”, “<ePgdn>”, “<eUp>”, “<eDn>”, “<eLf>”, and “<eRg>”.

KBTranslate also generates the string “<space>” for each space received. So, if something looks like a space in the output document, it is not a space; it is a non-character code not recognized by KBTranslate. You would have to investigate.

You can see how KBTranslate works using your regular keyboard and a text document.

To stop KBTranslate from running, right-click the ‘H’ icon in the taskbar and choose exit.

Use the latest EPConfig (v5.16+) to load the new configuration file into an Enterpad.
Enterpad: For those who need more than a few shortcuts.

The software works very well. Thank you so much!
