I am trying to figure out how to disable the capacitive buttons when a particular app is open. This is mainly for taking notes or writing in general. I realize that I can just flip the tablet, but it's still more beneficial to just kill the buttons. I am rooted and running cleanrom v2 with bindroid kernel. I also have xposed installed as well as Tasker and a bunch of other automation type apps installed. As of now I can disable them manually with xposed additions, but that takes too long haha.

I know that there has to be a way to do this. Anyone have any ideas?

So far I have Tasker doing it the slow way and it works but I'd just like something more direct

Code:
Test (2)
	A1: Secure Settings [ Configuration:Xposed Additions - [Re-map Settings] .ActivityRemapSettings Package:com.intangibleobject.securesettings.plugin Name:Secure Settings Timeout (Seconds):0 ] 
	A2: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:2 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 
	A3: Run Shell [ Command:input tap 500 480 Timeout (Seconds):0 Use Root:eek:n Store Output In: Store Errors In: Store Result In: ] 
	A4: Run Shell [ Command:input tap 500 690 Timeout (Seconds):0 Use Root:eek:n Store Output In: Store Errors In: Store Result In: ] 
	A5: Button [ Button:Back ] 
	A6: Run Shell [ Command:input tap 500 630 Timeout (Seconds):0 Use Root:eek:n Store Output In: Store Errors In: Store Result In: ] 
	A7: Run Shell [ Command:input tap 500 690 Timeout (Seconds):0 Use Root:eek:n Store Output In: Store Errors In: Store Result In: ] 
	A8: Button [ Button:Back ] 
	A9: Button [ Button:Back ]
In xposed additions I already set up the binds so essentially I just use Tasker to toggle it.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm wondering if you ever found a decent alternative for disabling the capacitive keys for note taking. I'm in the same position currently.
