Bind rotation to a knob?

I recently got a new macropad and it came with knobs. I want to know if I can key bind the rotation action to the knob when I turn it. I'm not interested in pressing the R key or keybinding it to one of the other macro buttons and then using my pen or mouse to rotate it. The program the macropad uses is VIA if that helps to answer my question.

It would be easy to do this with scripts, but unfortunately there is a bug that does not allow you to control the parameters of the rotate view tool: Rotate tool does not assign angle value trough script

You got a Work Louder Creator Mini didn't you? Because I'm here looking for the exact thing for mine, that I also got. 

If you find a solution, I'm interested.

I got the Doio Mastadon Macropad. Which was so frustrating to set up at first.. I'll keep this place posted if I found a solution that works!

I have a workaround! But requires using a trackpad to do the mouse click.

I haven't got it to chain holding SHIFT down for 15deg increments, but you can assign the Counterclockwise using Special > Any as `KC_MS_DOWN` and the Clockwise as 'KC_MS_UP' and get 1 degree increments. 

 

I'll post again if I get it figured out.

And It will do the 15deg rotation but only after you rotate the dial A LOT. The smoothness of the dial's rotation obviously doesn't match the smoothness of a mouse as the number of turns seems inconsistent.

In Windows we have a huge number of automation tools. For example, we can use AHK to activate the Photoshop window, select the RotateTool and set the focus to the degrees input box:

 

 

 

if WinExist("ahk_class Photoshop")
{
	WinActivate 
	Send "R"
	MouseMove 220, 50
	MouseClick "left"
}

 

It is enough to bind this script on any free button, after which you can send keystrokes up or down to control the rotation of the canvas. I'm using X-Keys Jog & Shuttle, just checked and everything works great.
