    I figured I'd drill some holes in my desktop, insert some arcade style buttons off of FleaBay, order a USB encoder off FleaBay, and have me some cool easy shortcut keys.

    10 buttons were $3.
    The encoder was $9.
    download "Joy to Key"

    Now to convert to outlines in Flexi, I just press the convert to outlines button, instead of ctrl, shift, O.
    I only have 2 buttons installed right now, but I ordered 10 that I am going to install.
    When i'm done I will label them.
    I don't know if it's gonna make life easier or not, but it makes sense to me.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Do they have other colors besides red ?? Red tends to get hot faster and might begin melting. Just a thought. I might look for toggle switches and put them up the sides of my monitors.

    I don't know if I would label them just yet. Surely you could script them to be macros for other programs as well. Why just have them limited to just 1 program? Unless that's the only thing that is done at that desk? As an ole arcade brat, I'm digging the retro buttons.

    They have several colors to choose from. Red is my favorite color.

    Good Idea. "Joy to Key" was just the first thing I thought of to test it.
