We see implementing programmable buttons as a separate task from enhancing the capabilities of the game pad. We have a github issue open for enhancing the game pad. You can track it at https://github.com/buildbotics/bbctrl-f ... /issues/83 .

It is considered important, but we do not have this task scheduled.

I'm not sure I know what you are asking, but it sounds like you are asking how to configure the motors. That is done on the motor configuration pages. You can find an explanation of the motor configuration pages in the manual. Here is a link to the section:

If you meant something else, please explain a bit further.

Just wanted to piggyback on wabbastang's original post! As a future customer, the features he listed are key purchasing points to me any many others looking to select a new controller...especially the one touch probing of xyz and pause and resume. I'm not sure how many would agree with me but I would much rather have a cleaner UI with these features being a permanent button on the main page rather than a button that would need to be programed. The more plug and play the setup and software the better! Most of the mentioned features wabbastang states are now basic features in most controllers. Love all the work going into these controllers and cant wait to see what comes down the pipe. Keep up the great work!
