Also if that helps for other uses, here is a list of shortcuts I've put together. It helps if you want to use a keyboard (for whatever reason) with your Fresco, or if you plan to use Fresco with a windows desktop machine. Because using Fresco on Desktop is awesome 🙂

So I watched the video you sent and I discovered that the back and side buttons of the pen do not work in Adobe Fresco (they work normally as if I had no app open). And unfortunately, I can't even set the pen buttons as keyboard shortcuts (for example, the spacebar for pan).

Good to know then... Maybe it's time to send a feature request to Microsoft!

I have not noticed anything for the side button of a pen in Fresco.

Are you able to set specific tasks for specific apps within the Surface Pen's own app?

I can set the top button to open a specific app (one press, double press, hold) in the Windows settings but nothing more.

I am not familiar with the stylus function of a windows machine, but on my graphic tablet I can set up a shortcut for each of the button of my stylus. In that case I would need to link the button to the "space" shortcut (the space bar of the keyboard) as it's the shortcut to pan.

See if that helps

If you can't set it on your machine, it's not going to work on Fresco. I have a graphic tablet where the buttons can be set as shortcuts and it works perfectly 🙂 (I use it for the eraser tool)
