What are the various screen-control gestures that can be used during a Splashtop XDisplay session?

The first time you successfully make a connection on your iPad, a Hints screen initially displays.  The second page of this Hints screen illustrates the various screen-control actions you can use during a Splashtop XDisplay session. 




Tap:  Equivalent to left-mouse click.

Tap-and-hold (long press):  Equivalent to right-mouse click.

One-finger drag:  Can be used to select text, or to drag the scroll bar.

Two-finger tap:  Equivalent to hovering the mouse over the tapped area ("mouse-over").

Two-finger drag:  Scrolls the active window.

Three-finger drag:  Scrolls the entire screen.  For example, if the keyboard is open, this would allow you to view what is blocked by the keyboard.

Two-finger pinch-zoom:  Zooms in and out.

Two-finger pinch-and-drag:  Functions the same as the three-finger drag (mentioned above) to pan the screen on the iPad. 

Three-finger tap:  A three-finger tap will display the Controls menu, which provides options that allow you to adjust the video mode, turn on the sound, open the virtual keyboard, and choose the position of your XDisplay.

By default, the Hints screen appears every time you start a connection.  Tapping Continue closes the screen and lets you continue with your connection.  However, the Hints screen will still display again the next time you initiate a connection.
