I got my first graphics tablet today and it has 12 user programmable function keys. I would like to hear your suggestions on what to program the keys for. So far I have only decided Command N to open a file along with [ and ].

I'll primarily be using it with Designer but keystrokes that are common across the Affinity Suite may make the most sense. It also has 16 spft keys that I can program but it may be best to wait on those.

So let's hear what you are using or what you think I should use for the function keys.

Its a Huion HS610 and it seems to work well. But, I really suck and drawing with it. It is going to take a lot of practice. However,  being retired, I have lots of time for practice.

The beauty about customisable keys is you fit it to how you want it to be but basic functions are Undo, Redo, Hand, Brush, Brush size + Brush size -, Pen, Erase (unless you can use the other end of the stylus as an eraser) Zoom in and out.
