Swiftpoint X1 Control Panel UI - Profile Panel

Swiftpoint X1 Control Panel UI - Profile Panel

The profiles panel is where you can select which profile you want to view/edit, check or set which profile is active, enable or disable auto profile switching, and create or delete profiles.

Selecting a profile to view/edit

To view or edit a profiles button mappings or settings, just click its icon in the profile carousel. Its settings will then be displayed in the main pane below.

The profile you are currently viewing will have a white border and bold text in the profile carousel. Take note however that viewing a profile does not make it the active profile on your mouse immediately. if it does happen to be the currently active profile it will be purple and bold rather than white.

Setting the Active Profile

The profile which is currently active on your mouse is shown on the left side of the profile panel. It will also be highlighted in purple on the profile carousel.


With Active Profile set to Auto the Control Panel will put your mouse into the correct profile whenever you are using the app/game it is linked to. But if you want to set a specific profile to be active switch Active Profile to Manual. This will enable a drop-down menu where you can select any profile to make it active. This menu is also available by right clicking the Control Panel's system tray icon.
Setting the Active Profile switch to Manual will disable Auto Profile Switching. So make sure to switch it back to Auto when you no longer need to be locked to one specific profile.



Creating/Modifying a Profile


If you want to create a profile for a game or application which was not added automatically click the '+' button on the profile panel.

This will open a dialog where you can name your new profile, add an image to use as its icon, and link to an app.  Adding an image and linking to an app are optional, but recommended.



To modify any of these settings on an existing profile, simply right click its icon on the profile panel and select Modify to open this same dialog.

This menu can also be used to delete a profile, or set it as the default.


Linking a Profile to an App:

Linking your new profile to the app/game it will be used with allows it to work with the auto profile switching system. So that whenever you are using that app your mouse is put into the correct profile automatically. If you don't do this you will need to select the profile manually using the Control Panel each time you go to use that app.

In order to do this you will need to click the Browse button and find the exe/app file for the app/game you want to link to. In most cases these are relatively easy to find. But if you get stuck check here for some tips for finding the correct file to link.

Managing Predefined Profiles

Clicking the Icon at the far right of the profiles panel will open a window where you can select which of the predefined profiles you want to load.

Any profiles already loaded will be pre-selected, and you can select which to enable or disable individually.

The Detect button will automatically add ticks to supported game which are installed on your system.

Note: If you have customized one of the predefined profiles deselecting it here and clicking Apply will delete your customization's. So if you enable it again it will be restored to its default settings.






Setting the Default Profile



Whichever profile is set as default will:
  1. Be set as active on your mouse when the Control Panel is launched on startup.
  2. If active Profile is set to Auto the default profile will also be set as active any time you switch to a game/app which is not linked to its own profile.
  3. if you save your profiles to your mouses flash memory the default profile will be set as active when your mouse is plugged in; even if the Control Panel is not installed.
  4. Have a 'home icon', unless it has its own custom icon.

When you first install the Control Panel the Desktop profile will be set as the default. It is recommended you leave this as the default, and just modify it to suit your needs. But if you want to change the default this can be done by right clicking any profile on the profile carousel and selecting Use by default.
