Another one from my side

Fire

I can be composed by one or more elements

Fire needs air and fuel to be able to sustain.

I'm important but usually people is focused on other elements

Fire is one of the important five elements of life but usually ignored.

But there are times when I am protagonist.

Fire is considered to be divine entity in Hindu mythology and is an integral part of many rituals.

It's not rare to be modified by some softwares...am I wrong??

Maybe referring to firewall.

My name is about hands fingers.

Rings of fire probably. I feel like it's a bit stretched.

Are you a

index?

I can be composed by one or more elements

An index is a list

I'm important, but usually people is focused on other elements.../

But there are times when I'm the protagonist

Say the index is a bibliography of a book. People usually use it to locate sources, but it can be relevant too if you want to know what to consult for a certain topic.

It's not rare to be modified by some softwares... am I wrong?/

My name is about hands fingers

Indices I suppose are a common feature in software. Index finger is the most nimble of five fingers.

Are you a

Digit?

I can be composed by one or more elements

Digits form a number together

I'm important, but usually people is focused on other elements...

People look at the whole number or the significant digits

But there are times when I'm the protagonist

Significant digits, also I'm "number one"

It's not rare to be modified by some softwares... am I wrong?

All software basically just modify numbers, also this is considered "digital"

My name is about hands fingers

A digit also means finger

I'm composed by the union of two words

"dig" "it"

Near distance or far distance... I don't care, I'm always there

Digital signals don't lose info over distances, in contrast to analog

  • $\begingroup$ This should be a valid answer, if it weren't for Clue #2 and Clue #3. Clue #2: Digits form a number together explains Digits compose, but not Digit is composed by... I could accept, instead, the reference of Binary Digit, where every Digit is composed by bits. Clue #3: People look at the whole number or the significant digits explains the digits are the main object, but in the clue there's written that people is focused on other elements, while I could accept, instead, that in a book there are page numbers, but always people is focused on the page content. $\endgroup$ – xKobalt Jul 31 at 13:06
