    Troubleshooting touch issues

    Some users report interaction issues such as two touch points being detected while using only one finger on the touch screen. Here are a couple of ways to address this kind of problem:

    • Deactivate TUIO or Windows native touch (HID) on your touch device. (Use your display's user manual for directions.) By default IntuiFace is listening for both kinds of touch events. This can cause a problem when both Windows native touch and TUIO interfaces are activated.
      If your device is a PQLabs overlay or a TablerTV, follow the directions here to deactivate TUIO.
    • If you don’t need to use IntuiFace’s remote control feature, you can deactivate TUIO listening in IntuiFace itself. To do this, run the IntuiFace Configuration Tool, uncheck the “Accept remote control” option then click on Save. For more about the Configuration Tool, see this article.

    If you have any trouble configuring your touch device, contact the IntuiFace Support team.
