Hotkeys and Wacom Tablets

Various Wacom Tablets (and other makes) have different methods of achieving the same results so consulting the maker's manual is essential to get the required result.

Some examples:

Wacom Intuos 3/4 users can configure the Express keys to be Control, Alt and Shift.

Wacom Intuos 3 users can configure the Slider Strip to be the Scroll/Zoom/Mouse wheel.

Wacom Intuos 4 users can configure the “wheel” to be the Scroll/Zoom/Mouse wheel.

Some Bamboo Tablets have Gesture or Touch Controls but this method needs verification by a user??
