Ok Im a new x52 user and I am wanting to assign my Precision Slider to zoom in and out.Exactly how do I do this.So far I have figured everything out that I have tried on the new controller in RoF.But trying to assign key presses to the slider or rotary's....well it just isnt working for me.I tried using the mouse record feature in the x52 profiler but it will only zoom in and out just enough to know that it moved.

I was able to set my slider to zoom by first setting it to three bands, 100-80%, 80-20%, 20-0%. Then assign the numpad + key to one end, and the numpad - key to the other, leaving the middle empty. Zoom in and out is fast this way but still controllable. If it is too fast for your liking you could set it up as a macro and adjust the timing between keystrokes.

Hope that helps,
