Please swap ctrl click for preferences

It cumbersome to press ctrl and click at the same time, especially if you are playing keyboards. Why can't it be only a simple press and preferences to be ctrl click accessible?


So good - but just one tweak and it would be perfect

As others have said, this is a solid and unobstrusive tool, now in daily use in my studio. But please please make an update where it doesn't ask me anything. Or, maybe just once and then never again. It launches on startup, sits out of the way until needed and its perfect. Just make it stop asking me stuff. Thanks so much. It is still worth 5 stars because its so helpful. Best wishes

OK but irritating

I need a simple program like Tap Tempo to quickly analyze BPMs of songs I come across, but the program, although adequate, has some really annoying features. Every single time I launch the app it asks me if I want to "conflgure Tap Tempo to launch on login?" It won't take "no" for an answer. And then, I have to click through yet another screen on how to use the program. Every. Single. Time. For the 175th time, I've got it! If it would just shut up and work I would give it a higher rating.
