Why have that touchpad area???
I understand why you have the L and R buttons. It allows right
and left clicks, which is nice. But why waste area on a "touchpad" ?
Just enable the X mouse pointer - which is easy enough. The
touchscreen _is_ a touchpad already, so no need for a separate pad.
Then you can put the L and R buttons at the bottom of the screen,
and have much more room for the app itself on the screen.
Or am I missing something?
