I have set up an action to press the delete key when i hold down shift on the keyboard and click a button on my tablet pen. I would ideally like it to work so that if i am holding down shift, i can click the pen button multiple times to keep deleting e.g if i wanted to delete a few letters from a word. Currently it only allows one delete and if i want to keep going, i have to release the shift key every time i make one deletion.
Is it possible to change my actions so i can keep deleting when shift is held down?
This seems to work:

You'll need to change the Trigger to the click of your Wacom.
Are you using special drivers? Or how did you manage to show your Wacom Intuos Pro tablet as the click?
This is now what I have, but it doesn't delete at all now. Not sure if I've done something wrong. I notice there is a mouse click action there, which I guess may be why it's not working?
When I choose a trigger i select "USB Device Key Trigger" and when i click the button on the pen it recognises it. I dont think there is a way of getting it to simulate a pen click though in the actions section..
ah, oh I see.
in which app are you trying to do the Delete?
Ideally I'd like it to work in any program, but I guess the most important one is Adobe Indesign.
haven't found a way.
One idea I can think of is:
create a shortcut keyboard using keys on the left side of your keyboard, so you don't have to switch between your keyboard and holding the Wacom pen.
Thanks for trying. Yep i ended up remapping the tilde key to be backspace. Not a bad compromise.
