Thanks for that link, however isn't there anyone who has a fix right now for this? An addon, a plugin?
And as I do appreciate your feedback, it isn't a solution for my work right now or the coming year for that matter. So I don't understand why anyone would mark it as a 'correct answer'.
Hoping for a fix how others have solved this problem.
i don't recall ever seeing anyone mention shortcuts for tablet users of animate.
you might get more info from forums like photoshop, but it's only just possible something that works for ps will work with animate.
Yes, it's a small niche so to speak, that's what i also discovered in my search, but the search was successful.
So for anyone with this same issue there is a program called 'Tablet Pro' which has the 'Artist Pad' where you can make a custom virtual on screen keypad made for exactly this issue. There's also a free beta one for this called 'Toolbar Creator'
And for another option you can also customize your Wacom pen in Windows control panel and add the 'Radial Menu' option to one of the buttons on your pen. When you click it you get an on screen, intuitive menu around the cursor where you can add your own custom hotkeys etc.
