    Hey guys!

    I recently bought a Samsung slate 7 for digital painting. I really miss some keys while using it without having a keyboard connected, like ALT, SHIFT, STRG etc.
    Samsungs "Touch Supporter" gives me the STRG at least, but it's not customizable and doesn't have the other keys I need.
    I have no use for a complete onscreen keyboard, it would take too much space while painting. I'd really need something like the previously mentioned application, but supporting custom keys. Didn't find anything googling around.

    All help will be appreciated!

    Thanks, Manu.

    Thank you, lblb. I was looking for that.

    Before I saw your answer I already tried ArtDock / PSDock, but they didn't really work right, so I wrote a simple dock in c#, giving me the desired keys. If anyone's interested I can post a download link. So far it has got toogle buttons for ctrl, alt and shift, a delete key and an F11 key (which I use for fullscreen switching in MyPaint, Opera, Firefox etc.).
    I'll have to try it out in daily activity before I can tell what other buttons would make sense to have there.

    Manu.

    Hi Manu, I'd be interested in the download for your dock, if you still have it. Incidentally, I'm trying to put together usable dock for MyPaint.

    RadialMenu has a toolbar that supports touch+pen but the current release doesn't have support for the Samsung slate unfortunately. The next release will have universal support for all pen/touch devices though. RadialMenu might be a little bit overkill though if your only interested in those keys.

    Also, the CHOMP toolbar has support for more devices then the other docks as far as I'm aware.
