"Untrusted App" Warnings

When trying to run the app, your system might complain about this software being untrusted. This is because I haven't had the code digitally signed, which costs hundreds of dollars a year.

Feel free to review the code, you can also run directly with Python3.

For Windows 10, click More info and then Run anyway.

Profile autoswitching is based on a list of rules.

To create a new rule, click New rule... button:

A new window should pop up:

Each rule contains application name, window title, and the profile number to switch to.

Type in the keywords you want to match in the text box. They are case-insensitive, leave blank to match all.

Current active window and a list of all windows are provided for reference.

Click Save when done.

Back to the main window, duckyPad should now automatically switch profile once a rule is matched!
