Yes, I did confirm that the keys are recognized in TVPaint when I open the keyboard shortcut configurations in TVPaint and press the keys, TVPaint highlights the key combo that is assigned.

So that's why I suggested you to open a text editor (or any tool that takes text as input, even the browser url bar should do). You must keep the focus in it, meaning that the caret (text cursor) should be blinking. And then press the buttons. The letter should appear in the text.
In any case, if your key was recognised in TVPaint, it should mean that the hardware is allright.
Ok, here is what I did. I unassigned key F from my Flips for "Flip KEYS only" . Then I reassigned key F to Open FX Panel. This works , both when I press the F key on my keyboard and when I press the Wacom Express Key which is a configured to F . The same result if I reassign F (or any other letter key) to any other function ... EXCEPT for Flips . It is only Flips shortcuts that are not activated when I press on Wacom Express Keys.
With the text editor open with text cursor blinking in the text editor I press the Wacom Express Key buttons. No letter appears in the text editor. But even so the Express Key works to activate the shortcut in TVPaint ... except for shortcut keys that are assigned to Flips.open a text editor (or any tool that takes text as input, even the browser url bar should do).

Is it possible for Flips configurations get corrupted ? Should I just delete my current ones and start over ? But the odd thing is , the shortcut keys I assigned to Flips (F, G, H) work fine if I press them on the keyboard ... but not when I press the Wacom Express Keys ... so it seems like Flips configuration is ok , it works when I use the keyboard ... but for some reason Flips is not communicating with Wacom Tablet Express Keys or vice versa ...
I have tried the same tests with an Intuos 5 Pro tablet and my Cintiq 21 UX tablet. It is only shortcuts assigned to Flips that do not work when pressing the Wacom Express Keys on the Intuos or the Cintiq.
I'm fairly sure it is not a problem with the Wacom hardware communicating with the software ... because to make things easy for myself to remember when switching between applications as I must sometimes do , I also have Wacom Express Keys set up for ToonBoom Harmony NEXT KEY and PREVIOUS KEY as F and G , and I have FLIP ALL as H . These shortcut keys (F , G, H ) work fine in Harmony when I activate them from the Wacom Express Key buttons.
