I know there is a Freeze function that ignores input from the optical sensor (or disables the sensor, as the case may be) while a button is pressed and a Toggle function that will do the same once a button has been pressed until it is pressed again, but I would actually benefit from an Unfreeze function, so that I need to be holding the button down in order to use the function while Toggle is in the off position. I tried using the Freeze button thinking it might work vs Toggle the way Shift does vs CapsLock, but that did not work. My use case would be for mousing arrow key presses, where having the feature always on is a pain and a toggle will work, but Unfreeze could allow better precision. I can see where such a function could be equally useful for mouse motion. Is this something that is on the roadmap or has been previously requested?

If the aforementioned feature were built, it would also be useful to be able to program the default state of each sensor so that Toggle wasn't needed after each re-plug and/or update, but it isn't too big of a deal to manually Toggle each time those events occur. Regardless, I'd also like to know if this is on the roadmap or has been requested.

Finally, while typing all of that, it occurred to me that it would also be nice to be able to program the default "Mouse Speed" (formerly "DPI"?) for each side. So, is that a roadmap or requested item?

@Dustin You are right, the "Mouse Freeze" should act more as a shift that temporarily toggles mouse enabled/disabled status while held down. We will fix it. We will also fix so they remember their enabled/disabled state. I hadn't noticed that it wasn't doing that, but it should. We could add settings to "save" a default speed and enabled/disabled state to the devices in the future, but for now the easiest way is to just program a key to switch speed (formerly DPI) and enabled/disabled state (will work when it remembers when unplugging/plugging back in). Mouse speed does currently survive power cycles.
