Inform me! I'm getting the hang of it now but it does have a mind of its own from time to time.


Right click the Pad icon in the bottom right corner of the tool bar, select properties,
 from there you have the option to select how sensitive the pad will be to pressure.
You can also turn it off and just use the left button to select.
Of course my system maybe set up different to yours so this could well be utter bollix to you :-\

Pints have you not got into enough trouble for that  ;)
Only by those stuck up know it all parents who think they deserve special treatment.   
If they knew so much they'd be fit to get a few children to walk through a car park with them!

w**ker.
Why's that?
That's something I'd like an answer to.


Quote
Not surprised that you burnt the dinner twice, you come across as the type who'd be eating two dinners
If it's going...yeah why not?

I take it you have no kids; and by kids I mean toodlers - hence the name - mother and toodler spaces.  All toodlers have to by law and for safety be in a car seat, not a booster seat a car seat, very very young childern this seat gets taken out of the car and put on the pram - this requires space for the mother/father hence these spaces have the extra room round them.  Even older kids out of these seats need a car seat and invarable cannot walk yet or walk very well so when they are taken out then need to be placed into a waiting pram or buggy - especially if you have other kids to deal with.  People like yourself who selfishly take up these spaces at the expense of a mother/father and their toodler should be clamped and towed away.

I've been through this before but here goes again
1.  I've no children, doesn't mean I don't know anything about babies, toddlers or children.  I'm not going to go into my personal circumances but I know as much about children as some parents.
2.  My main objection is these spaces being at the doors.  Would these spaces not be better used for disabled people? 
3.  I have never seen or been in a parent toddler space that you would have room for a trolly along side the car.  Therefore why would you want to take children/babies out of a car at the most busy end of the carpark where's there's throngs of people, cars etc?

To believe that you deserve special treatment is quite typical of today's generation of selfish parents. 


You really are a first class w**ker - I think you'll find these spaces are along side disabled spaces but seem the type of p***k that would park in the disabled spaces as well.  Think you're attitude would change had you kids you plank.
Um I know they're beside disabled spaces  ::)
And I don't park in disabled spaces.
So we've say three disabled spaces and two selfish parent and toddler spaces - I happen to think it'd be better and make more sense to have five disabled spaces.
Why do these spaces have to be at the doors?

I will try and explain once again.  For a parent to get a child in and out of a car requires more room than the 3 inches each side of the door in a normal space; the supermarkets, shopping centres further aid the parent and child by having the spaces close to the exits/doors so that the safety of the child(ren) is put first when a parent loaded with shopping and trying to negotiate child(ren) safely into his/her parked car.  I just learned that a clamping system is being introduced by major shopping centres for people who abuse the mother/toddler spaces - lets hope you get clamped [edited by Mod3]

Yes I know why the spaces need to be wider, if I come out of the shop with a big box I could be doing with a wider space but I don't see these popping up. 
They need to be at the doors - for the safety of the children eh?  If a parent can't walk a couple of children through a car park they shouldn't have children!
How do you think a parent with no car does?  How do you think parents that don't get the 2 or 3 selfish parent and toddler spaces do?

Because a tool like you is parked in them?  They manage, we all do - for someone who has no children this argument is obviously lost on you.  By the way comparing carrying a wide box with a small human being shows just what a [edited by Mod3]

Edit for someone with no children you very opinionated; try to stick to topics you know something about.

No I don't park across 2 or 3 of them and I don't get them most of the time, they're usually filled.
If you can manage, then manage - don't be so selfish. 

It's sad you're reduced to name calling (I thought the admin was putting a stop to it?) when you have no argument.
Your edits are so much nicer  :-*

I thought it was parent and toddlers  ::)
How do I do that btw, because I happen to think the spaces would be better used if they were disabled spaces?

Ah now pints, you can't say there is no arguement for the parent and child spaces, it has been put forward by snowed under, myself and others on this and in fact on a couple of other threads as well at this stage. Snowed under has lost the cool which I have done before with your ignorant manner, that is understandable. But now you are going and telling teacher (you can't go telling mammy as she is parked at the back of the car park), that is a bit childish. Have you reported it yet  ::)

I haven't told teacher anything - I could have reported his name calling but I havent.
You and him have put across some argument about unfit parents not being able to walk through a car park that's not very convincing.

Now you calling me an unfit parent, would you deem that to be libel?

Pints, those mother and toddler spaces are close to the door for a reason. I am sure it could be quite difficult for a woman to load her car with shopping and get the kids into the car if she was on her own.
Nonsense I do it all the time.

Quote
Would you really want to see a woman struggling with a screaming toddler and a busted bag of shopping.
NO course not but I've never seen a woman like that taking advantage of a space.  It's the women that have to walk a mile home with a few children and a couple of bags of shopping that get my sympathy. 

Quote
Would it kill you to have to walk from the back of the car park, or even half way down it?
It might! According to louth exile and snowed under carparks are dangerous places!

Quote
Doesnt your Mammy still do your shopping for you? 
No of course not I'm far to old for that.

Not only an ignorant individual but a cyber world freak.  Again, having no childern how can you comment about any parent being unfit if they want to avail of the spaces made available for them by shopping centres which you choose to ignore and selfishly park in.  Hope you get clamped real soon.

I never said the parent was unfit for wanting to avail of the spaces - who wouldnt want to park at the door?
I dont buy this thing that a parent can't walk children across a car park.  As I say, I do it all the time - with children.

And toddlers? As you have no kids I will again explain what that is; a toddler is a child who is totally dependant on others; they cannot walk; cannot talk; cannot take direction; by law and for safety they need to be in certain type of car seat which the parent then attaches to a pram; hence the wider spaces; shopping centres appreciate that the parent may have more than one child and this coupled with any shopping they may purchase is the reason the spaces are near the doors.  It is quite obvious that these spaces and their intentions are treated with pure contempt by yourself; so as I say hope you get clamped real soon.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz  Yes I know what toddlers are and have had them shopping too.  Jeeze this high and mighty attitudes some parents have is unreal  :D
Most parents have a push chair or pram for a toddler so there is no issue with walking them across a carpark.
So we're back to the wide spaces which I've no issue it, just put them at a suitable location in the car park and free up spaces at the door for disabled parking.
Do you think, you as a parent, are more entitled to a space at the door than a disabled person?
