Surface Pen support?

Hello,

New to FL Studio here. I'm loving the touchscreen support, but wondering if there's a way to do something with the third button/eraser - the shortcut button - on the Surface Pen. I'm working with the pen on a first-gen Surface Book. By default, Windows lets you assign the shortcut button three functions, depending on whether it's clicked, double-clicked or held. The options it gives (mostly related to Windows Ink) aren't useful to me in the context of a sequencer, but it does "let other apps override" the assigned functions. I can't find any information on whether FL Studio can do anything with this - or whether I can configure things on the Windows side to work with FL Studio. I went to the GUI Input options and selected "Optimize for pencil," but that didn't seem to change things.

Would be great to have, just for example: click = open mixer, double click = open channel rack, click and hold = open plugin picker.

Thanks in advance for any clarification!
