    How to change Aftermarket Stylus button functions???

    I've searched high and low all over to find a forum anywhere that can explain to me how to change the button functions on my stylus. I DO NOT have a windows 10 Pro factory pen, I am using a NuVision Stylus that is compatible and works fine on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The reason I am trying to figure this out is because i'm using Adobe Illustrator to draw and the issue is there's no "history" panel like photoshop has so to undo something you need to click image>undo everytime which is annoying if your trying to draw. The button combo to use undo faster is Ctrl+Z in Illustrator so I was going to change one of the buttons on my pen to be configured to "Ctrl+Z" so when i click the button, it'll undo whatever I just did, instead manually finding it through the "image" menu as stated before.
    The other issue is that Windows seems to only be geared towards allowing users to configure default stylus' for the Surface Pro. I even went into control center and found where it says "Set flicks to perform certain tasks", but all that does is show you what the clicks do now (which is single click acts as a single click and double acts as a double click. i'll post screenshots as well to show) and change speed. Nothing about actually changing what the button functions do. The other useless option is going to pen and windows ink which does 0 for me. I've searched everywhere in the computer for a setting but nothing. If anyone could please tell me if i'm missing something or how to change these damn buttons that'd be awesome.
    As I said, this is NOT a default Surface Pro pen, this is a NuVision Stylus. It draws fine and connects, there just seems to be no way to edit the button functions. How to change Aftermarket Stylus button functions???-capture.png

    Did you try settings in Settings / Devices / Pen and Windows Ink?

    Yes, not to be rude but I said it in the second paragraph “The other useless option is going to pen and windows ink which does 0 for me.” Which is still true. None of the functions there have an effect on my stylus.
