At my updated version of Hotspotizer (http://github.com/birbilis/Hotspotizer), I’ve just added support for loading a Gesture Collection file at startup, if found at Library\Default.hsjson, by using the following code:

const string GESTURE_COLLECTION_LIBRARY_PATH = "Library"
const string DEFAULT_GESTURE_COLLECTION = "Default.hsjson"

  GESTURE_COLLECTION_LIBRARY_PATH,
  DEFAULT_GESTURE_COLLECTION));
