    I do not want to interact with my workstation like it was a smartphone . . . I do use the side controls as well as additional input devices to enhance my work flow though.

    I actually wish my cintiq had touch since I am used to using those gestures on a screen.

    Also a majority of keyboard shortcuts are to be used with your left hand. For someone drawing with their right hand it is less of an issue, but I draw with my left. I find it disruptive to use the keyboard shortcuts and program them into my tablet instead.

    Ever try a programmable keypad? You place it where you want, it's not right/left hand specific and and most are highly customizable. (the X-keys XK-24 USB Keypad is a good basic model).

    Why would I do that when I have express keys? That seems counter productive to why I like the product line.

    It would be to supplement the functionality of the interface not supplant the express keys.

    The express keys are a solution to me. Given that I don't have to touch a keyboard and can add in more commands especially since your conversation was about avoiding the express keys on something that costs so much. I would not find it wise to spend additional money on something that you're avoiding but use it to your advantage. I also stated why as a person who uses the left hand that this is a much more ideal solution.

    If I want more subcommands, I use the Radial menu - http://blogs.wacom.com/2013/05/16/us...p-radial-menu/

    All the ones I use the most are on my express keys and dual switch, especially on the fly brush sizing. http://qtmelon.tumblr.com/post/38021...nter-12-i-will and http://qtmelon.tumblr.com/post/26799...e-some-general

    I usually get rid of Precision mode since I don't need it and substitute it for Radial menu. Haven't needed to reach the keyboard for much in years, smoother experience.

    I guess I'm just old-school . . . I like buttons, t-bars, knobs, sliders, jog-shuttles and joysticks. in addition to and alongside my tablet and it's various pointing devices. *shrug*

    I use a Cintiq 12WX, bought it when I graduated from university as my previous tablets were all £100-ish things that were okay but the pens could be pretty fragile.

    If I ever had enough cash I'd definitely consider upgrading to a 13HD or one of the larger HD/touch models. Since I work from a desktop machine I don't really have any need for portability but it would be nice to be able to have my Cintiq share the same resolution as my main monitor display.

    I use a Wacom Bamboo Create. Unfortunately Wcom doesn't make the Create, only a general Bamboo. It does well as a tablet, the only drawback being is its not wireless.

    I have a Wacom Intuos5 Large. Love it. Saved several paychecks to get it and I've been pleased with it ever since :)
