Hi all from nedsez
I wonder if some of kind people would like to share the way you have your Intuos3 buttons set up for ease of use.

All the Very Best

Hiya Nedsez,
I'm installing and uninstalling betas often at the moment and have just put on a new wacom driver, so i've not set this up for my apps as of yet, but here is something i would typically have as my setup

If you're on a mac substitute, 'command' for 'ctrl' and 'option' for where i have 'alt'

The left column i leave pretty much as the modifier keys which are used often in conjunction with the pen and as i'm right handed these are best on my opposite hand. I change the pan/scroll option to the spacebar using 'keystroke' from the dropdown, hitting the spacebar then OK and then naming it spacebar so it makes sense.
The reason i have the spacebar is if i'm working on something and constantly accidently knocking the rocker button on the pen itself, i can go in and disable the pen buttons quickly and use the spacebar shortcut with the pen to move my canvas around.

On the right column i have zoom in, zoom out, undo and save as.
Zoom in: select keystroke from the dropdown, hit CTRL SHIFT +, for the zoom in shortcut and name
Zoom out: select keystroke, CTRL -, and name
Undo: keystroke, Ctrl z, and name
Save As: keystroke, Ctrl SHIFT S, name

In artrage its just as easy to use the - and + in the menu to zoom in and out so you may like to have something else there depending on what you use the most when working, eg/ CTRL L to add a new layer. I'm just used to it being that way from other software i use.

Hope this is helpful :)
