Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Configuring "spare" wacom/drawing tablet space as extra keys or something else?

It's not an urgent matter so I won't post on the forums. But if anyone knows it's possible I'm quite interesting in directions on how to do it, specially if it's something more or less trivial, like not requiring to re-program the driver or something.

If the title/subject isn't clear, sometimes, in order to have the tablet area proportional with the screen, one may need to "unmap"/deactivate some of the tablet area. Then perhaps this could be configured as extra keys or something -- which, of course, one would press only with the stylus, unless it's a touch-tablet as well.




Judging only for the apparent design, a Genius tablet/mousepen has something like this by default. "Buttons"/keys that aren't the typical "mechanical", "click" buttons with springs underneath plastic keys, outside the mouse/pen-sensitive area, but flat, at the edges of it, probably working with the same pen-sensitive mechanism, rather than just faking it.
