Adding an extra keyboard just for short cuts

I'm guessing, like me, most DOpus users like their keyboard short cuts, so I thought you might like this program " Multi-Keyboard MACROS" by MediaChance (I have no affiliations outside of being a costumer).

It allows you to add keyboards to your system and map macros to a single key without effecting the primary keyboard. Simply put, keyboard 2 can have the 1 key as copy without the need to press ctrl+1 and the main keyboard's 1 key is unaffected.

The program is new and I don't know if similar exist elsewhere.

I've set up a small bluetooth keyboard as my second one and it works well.

See https://mediachance.com/multikeyboard/ for details.

PS his realdraw program is handy for buttons.

That's a neat idea.

There's also the Elgato StreamDeck line where you get a small (sadly wired) separate keyboard for macros where the buttons have little screens in so you can assign custom icons to help remember which is which. More expensive and fewer keys than a standard keyboard, but also less space and easier to remember which key is which.
