Button Mappings - So Far So Good!
Guys, this is what I have done with my button mappings and so far it seems to be working reasonably well. Well, reasonably enough that I am happy with it/can live with it.
Now I am very nit-picky and am coming from a heavily customized WisBar world. But in my quest to be stylus-free (and loving the WOW-factor of TF3D), I am able to live with the device by making the changes listed below.
1. AEBPLUS - Volume Buttons
o Remapped volume buttons to provide Up/Down scrolling
o HOLD volume up or down - normal volume control
I did this because the TP was rejecting calls on its own whilst in my holster -- you know, the "press any volume button to mute the ringer" feature.
Note that if you do this, don't forget to look at the "Restore Volume Slider" option in AEBPlus (that guy thought of everything). I have all of mine unticked. Also take a look at: Options|Other Options|Control Volume Directly.
2. AEBPLUS - Phone Key ("Green Phone Button" in AEBP)
o Press once = Phone Button
o Press twice = Task List (Swipe left shows Programs)
o Press three times = Action List <-Note the Cut/Copy/Paste here!

ABOUT THE TASK LIST
: The Task List (and Programs list) is all touchable. AEBPlus provides its own task list as well but it isn't as nice as the one that I am using nor is it fingerable. The one that I am using is a freeware program called "MortButtons".
Download MortButtons here:
NOTE: Don't forget to also download the "ClickLED" skin on the same page. This skin closely matches the TF3D colour scheme.
During my testing, I've noted that MortButton uses about 250K (if you decide to leave it resident (recommended!)) and zero CPU since it is being called by AEBPlus.
ABOUT THE ACTION LIST
: The "Action List" (as pictured above) is part of AEBPlus and can be custom-catered to your liking. I like to keep it simple and simply have cut, copy and paste in there, as well as toggle Wi-Fi (which works on the TP).
3. AEBPLUS - End Call Button ("Red Phone Button" in AEBP)
o Press once = End Call
o Press twice = Last Task (ALT-Tab)
o Press thrice = Call DinarSoft TapText*
* "TapText" is a little utility that allows you to create a menu with clippings in it. I used it for email addy's and more. Check it out. I find it very useful and worth the ten bucks to register.

4. About the Home and OK Buttons...
Now these two buttons *can* be mapped using AEBPlus, however, they can't be *re-mapped*.
In other words, if you map something to these buttons, they will also perform their inherent functions (i.e. the Home button will always go home first; the OK button will always send an OK message to the system, etc.)
Personally, I have left these two alone.
Now there is MUCH MORE you can do with the above two apps in the configuration I've described. Customize it to your delight.
I hope that this post helps some of you guys out. I need to give back to this community!
