Possible to create a new "Key" with a keyboard that has g keys?

Currently almost every key on my keyboard is binded to something, and i am running out of keys to do stuff with. I currently have 12 g keys though. Is it possable to create new "keys" with the g keys? Currently all i am able to do is bind the keys to another key or a key combination. I think i am explaining this right

I'm assuming you are referring to the keyboard in your system specs. Do you have the utility for the G110 installed? If so, you should be able to use it to create macros for just about anything you want on the G keys. I used to use the G110 and had the G keys programmed to print special characters, such as , , , etc. from the character map and website URLs. I also have the G keys on my current G510 programmed to do the same, plus shortcuts to various drives in my computer. You should also be able to program them to open up programs.

I am having a problem getting the special keys into this keystroke box



When i CTRL-V it registers the keystroke as CTRL-V, and i'm getting no option to paste it in when right clicking.

EDIT: I've tried looking for the configurations files to manually paste the right character but i couldn't find it.

What are you trying to assign to the key?

—, , i have tried all of these. Also using the alt codes in that box also doesn't work. The problem isn't what i am trying to type i believe, the problem is HOW do i paste it into the box?

You don't want to paste characters into the utility since they will be limited to only one font. Instead of using keystroke, you need to use multi-keystroke and record the character code for the character you want (you can get characters from the character code map). For example, to get the em dash, you would first select Multi Key. Then you would type the name of the character in the Name: field; you can use CTRL V to paste the character itself in that field but only there. Then you would click on Start Recording, press and hold the ALT key down while typing in 0151. After typing, release the ALT key and click on Stop Recording. Leave the delay set at 25 milliseconds. Then press OK
