Is there any way I can instruct The Observer XT to pause the video by pressing a single key on the keyboard? There is a shortcut for that (Ctrl+Space) but a single key would be more convenient.

  1. Either use an XKeys keyboard and program a single key to pause or rescore an existing observation (must have subjects defined in your configuration) or in the Observation Settings
  2. go to the Scoring tab ane enable the setting: Pause playback when scoring an event.
