About TAP action

In virtual touch panel mode, the normal Click action will change to Tap action. This TAP action is like tapping on the invisible touch panel. Tapping on an actual touch panel is like hitting the panel, but for this virtual touch panel mode, it is more like a Push and Pull action.
To click a point more precisely, you have to make sure the virtual cursor has stopped and then perform the tap action.
If you touch the virtual panel and keep it there, Touch and Hold action will be executed, not the Tap action. Using two hands, you can perform Pinch/Pan or Scroll action.

Hint:  Actual actions that will be perfomed by the tap event depends on each application.
Double tap is supported but it is not ready for practical use, at this point.
Hint: To use two hand operation, check Multi Touch option
Important: When using Nearest Object Tracking mode, Click action will be disabled.
Important: MultiTouch.ini setting will be ignored when Virtual Touch Panel is enabled
