Using the X-Touch Compact with LrControl

LrControl supports the X-Touch Compact with the device default settings. So after you have installed LrControl, you can just take it out of the box, plug it in and it will work with LrControl. Use LAYER A on the device, press the button above A in the lower right corner.

Layers

The function of the encoders and faders can be changed using layers. Each layer defines the meaning of each fader and encoder.

The LrControl layers are selected using the bottom row of buttons, just below the faders.. The button corresponding to the selected layer will light up.

Tool Mode

When you use the Graduated Filter tool, the Radial Filter tool or the Adjustment Brush, the faders control the tool parameters. Start with selecting the tool and click in the image to position it. Then use the Sync button F1 on the BCF2000, to adjust the sliders to the correct position. Now you can control the tool parameters with the faders. When you are done with the tool, press the Sync button F1 again.

Function Details

Most functions are tied directly to a Lightroom parameter or function. But some have a function specific for the LrControl plug-in.

Factory Reset

When you have bought a new device, you can just plug it in and LrControl should work. If you notice that you get unexpected results, you should try a factory reset. After a factory reset, the device should work again.

To do a factory reset follow the following steps:

  1. Turn the power off, with the switch on the back of the controller.
  2. Press and hold both LAYER buttons, A and B.
  3. Power on the device while still keeping down the two layer buttons.
  4. Keep holding down the buttons for a few seconds, the buttons will flash a few times.
  5. When only the layer A button is illuminated, the reset is complete. Release the buttons.
