Does the PageFlip Cicada work with all Windows and Mac software? The PageFlip Cicada dual pedal emulates a keyboard that emits two key presses. The function of those keys is determined by the ﬁve mode but- tons. Any software on a PC or Mac will be able to interpret these key presses, whether they were triggered by tapping the pedal or any com- puter keyboard.
Notepad, to make sure it’s working properly. Does the PageFlip Cicada work with the Amazon Kindle? The PageFlip Cicada works with Kindle Fire HD. The older Kindle hard- ware does not support Bluetooth or include a USB port. However, Kindle software for the PC and Mac works with the pedal.
Therefore, if you have any particular switch that you prefer over the PageFlip Cicada’s integrated pedal, then by all means plug it in! Why are the LEDs not lit when I turn on the PageFlip Cicada? Make sure to install two fresh AA batteries in the pedal. The Page-...
An LED is lit next to the current mode setting of the pedal. Simply press a different mode button to change the setting. The LED will turn off once the PageFlip Cicada enters sleep mode after 30 minutes of inactivity (on version V5). Sleep mode is entered after 10 minutes of inactivity on ver- sions V1 to V4.
Bluetooth devices. Where can I store the optional Bluetooth dongle? No dongle is included with the Cicada pedal. You can purchase a Blue- tooth 3.0 dongle separately and place it in the convenient storage com- partment within the battery well on the bottom of the PageFlip Cicada.
Bluetooth support so they are the only candidates for using the dongle. Does PageFlip Cicada turn pages at timed intervals? No. PageFlip Cicada turns a page only when the user triggers it by tap- ping a pedal or activating an external switch. When is the Autorepeat mode appropriate? Turn on autorepeat if you are interested in fast browsing or scrolling.
Why the name "Cicada"? The pedal derives its name from the cicada insect. The sleek design of the dual pedal is inspired by the graceful shape of the cicada wings.
