Bug Description

Not a bug, but a feature request:
When the user has a hand on the mouse it may be easier to click to launch a program instead of pressing the right key. It would be good if this was possible.

Thanks for the cool program!

Thanks for your suggestion. This is something I have wished myself too sometimes.

It is doable, but it's not straightforward. The image shown on the screen is currently just a picture. There is no information whatsoever as to what regions of the picture constitute which key.

I guess the easiest way would be to store key information in some memory structure in a way such that the correspondent button can be optimally pinpointed given the clicked coordinate.

Not gonna lie: it's not on the roadmap, but I'm definitely open to receiving code contributions about it. I may give it a though later, though.

Sorry for not replying earlier. Also, thank you for your comment! I'm gonna keep this open.
