The pressure sensitive pen that comes with Wacom tablets is great, but it’s not ALWAYS about the pen! Sure the pen gets all the glory with it’s unparalleled control and nice grip feel, blah, blah, blah. It’s like, “Look at me, I’m pressure sensitive and stuff!” Well, if you are all about the pen and simply ignore those buttons on the tablet (ExpressKeys) then you are leaving out a ton of productivity gains.
EspressKeys enable you to assign common keyboard shortcuts and functions right on the tablet. “WHY Wes do I care about that?” you ask. “I use a keyboard just fine, thanks,” you say. To you, my friends, I say, “Excellent!” I too am a keyboard shortcut junkie and dare I say quite a master at it. I likely know more keyboard shortcuts than any geek should admit, but that is in fact my point. You know a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and many of them are three- and four-key combinations. Assigning some of those multi-keystroke combinations to a single ExpressKey can save you time and thus increase your productivity. It can also stop you from doing that twisty-finger origami thing that looks really awkward.
Watch how easy it is to set up ExpressKeys on your Intuos tablet or Cintiq interactive pen display.
