Keyboard Watcher Up/Down - A User Actor
Woland Tech Staff last edited by Woland
I decided to share this simple little User Actor that I use all the time. In fact, I use it so much that I completely forgot, (until today), that it's not actually a native Isadora actor, but a User Actor of my own creation. I'm sure other people have made something similar too, but I figured I'd share my version so that people could use it if they wanted.
At some point a long time ago, I got tired of having to put actors in front of Keyboard Watcher actors to prevent them from triggering things multiple times. To this end, I made a quick User Actor that's essentially a "single-press" variation of the Keyboard Watcher actor (and apparently started using it so often that I completely forgot that it wasn't a native Isadora actor). Today, upon rediscovering that it was actually something I made, I gave it a little update, added some comments, and here it is for all of you to enjoy.

If you’re unfamiliar with User Actors in Isadora, refer to this post on my website concerning how to set up the proper folder and how to bring User Actors into Isadora.
