Can anyone explain how it is functionally different between "Single Keystroke" and "Multiple Keystroke" in the Gaming Setpoint(G700, G500, G9x) Macro Manager?
I found official guidance bellow , but couldn't understand the meaning and difference quite well.
Single Keystroke: Key functions like a key on the keyboard (ie. Macro/configuration stays active as long as the button is pressed).
Multiple Keystroke: Macro plays out in a series of keystrokes (ie. macro will "type out" like a standard keyboard).
What situation would be better to use Single Keystroke, and vice versa.

I guess the best way to explain it would be through an example. Lets say you're playing a game with WASD control where you press W to run forward, you could set a mouse button as a single keystroke of W, that way you can simply press the mouse button to run forward.
For multiple keystroke, lets say for example there are a series of skills or buttons you regularly use in sequence, for example pressing 1, 2 and 4. In the mouse software you can create a macro that will press all 3 of those keys in sequence with a single click of the mouse button.
I hope that better explains it for you.

Hey there, I'm still having some real difficulties trying to assing numbers 1,2,3,4 on the 4 buttons on the left side of the mouse. I've tried the single keystroke, but the number is not typing. It's still funtioning as default.
I don't understand why it's this complicated on Windows, I managed to do this on my Mac before even though it's not supported.

Probably you're profile is not the right one. There's an option to force a certain profile. If you modified a profile, force that profile to be sure that it is the one you are using then make your test.
For you other question about single and multiple keystroke. Let's say single really simulate you pressing a really keyboard button. And multi would once press trigger a list of commands. So most of the situation you are better with single.
