The company said in a statement that a new CRAFT software developer kit was also available, making it possible for developers to add to the user experience of those using the CRAFT keyboard by adding application-specific controls to the creative input dial.
Called the Crown, the touch-sensitive aluminium input dial recognises the application in use. A light touch is enough to access context-specific functions.
“We’ve received extremely positive feedback about the CRAFT keyboard since launch, but wanted to support more apps, with more customisation options, for an even deeper and more engaging creative experience,” said Art O’Gnimh, global head of keyboards at Logitech.
“We have now added support for Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and also released a SDK so developers can help us make the Crown even more useful for all users.”
The updates allow for the use of the Crown as follows:
- Adobe Reader DC on Windows: Zoom, change the page and scroll horizontally.
- VLC Media Player on Windows: Skip forward and backward while watching a video, or adjust the volume.
- Preview on Mac: Zoom, change the page and scroll horizontally.
- Quicktime on Mac: Skip forward and backward while watching a video, or adjust the volume.
- Safari for Mac: Navigate between tabs.
- Spotify for Mac and Windows: Play and pause your music, change the volume, or change songs.
The CRAFT updates are available through Logitech Options 6.8 which can be downloaded free from this site.
