How it works
The PageFlip Dragonfly emulates a standard keyboard and works with any software that can interpret keyboard strokes to navigate through digital files. The pedal emits key presses, such as up/down arrow, with each tap of the left or right pedal. Users may select among five preset modes for the four pedals. They include PageUp/PageDown, Left/Right arrow, Up/Down arrow, Left/Right mouse click, Space/Enter, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next track. Changing modes is as simple as pressing a button. Most compatible apps use the up/down arrow mode to move from page to page. Since that is the default pedal mode, the user won't even have to make a selection.
Reprogramming the pedal
The Dragonfly offers the option to reprogram the five preset modes so that each pedal can now transmit any desired key press combination or hotkey function. Simply download our free software, pair the pedal to a Windows or Mac computer using Bluetooth, and run the downloaded software to reassign the pedal functions. Just press the Mode Reset button on the rear of the pedal to restore the factory settings anytime.
