extending "Basic Broadcasting" in the wizard to other keys?

When I used the ISB42 setup wizard, it allowed me to setup key maps for 1 through = (plus modifiers) under 'Combat Broadcast' and 'Combat Broadcast Hotkeys'

Is there a way to easily add a few dozen more buttons to this? It seems that setting up each additional key requires manually setting up a key map under both 'Combat Broadcast' and 'Combat Broadcast Hotkeys' then doing the same for each modifier as well - so setting up 8 different key maps for each new key.

Is there an easier way?

Re: extending "Basic Broadcasting" in the wizard to other keys?

There is a tickbox in the Wizard on the last page to enable the other combinations. If you don't tick the box, the Quick Setup Wizard, does create the mapped keys for the other combinations of MODIFIERS + 1 through =, but it doesn't assign the Hotkeys to them. You can just assign the hotkeys youself by selecting the correct mapped key under ISB42 - Combat Broadcast Hotkeys.

If you mean other key combos, e.g. A through Z, then you can use the Mapped Key Wizard for this (under the Wizards menu). For a basic broadcasting type (or Assist plus Broadcast), you can pump in as many keys as you like into the box on the wizard and it will create them all at once. Some other types of mapped keys you need to create 1 at a time e.g. a Re-Map, because of the nature of them.

I do mean "other key combos, e.g. A through Z" but there's no way to use the mapped key wizard to set this up. the Mapped Key Wizard only creates normal key maps, not the two-part (one part in combat broadcast, which is referenced by the other part in combat broadcast hotkeys) key maps that the Quick Setup Wizard constructs

Unfortunately, if you want those keys set up like the Wizard sets them up (e.g. split between two different Key Maps), then you'll have to do it manually. You can either make copies of the existing Mapped Keys and adjust what they send, or you can just adjust what the current ones send if you aren't using them all, but, to be honest, it's unnecessary to set them up this way unless you're looking to virtualize the Key Map to something different in the Character Set.
