Hi, Antony, sorry if any misunderstanding. I mean, there are currently two
interaction method, one of which is called "click-style interaction"
(according to wiki here: According to Wiki:
What I was proposing is an option to disable it for those who barely use
that. That's it. :)
So that when they mis-trigger the wrong keys (or wrong pies, which is more
likely to happen when more pies are defined), all they need to do is simply
to release the key, then the pie will disappear in a flash without having
to click one more time to close it.
