Found out there's software called CommandPost which support Loupedeck+ and it can be used to map the arrow keys and any of the Loupedeck+ buttons to keyboard key presses. Now I'm able to use Loupedeck+ arrow keys and buttons for going through photos with Photo Mechanic and tag the ones that are keepers.

Any update on this, could Loupedeck support be added to the roadmap?

This may change, but we have no plans to support the Loupedeck at this time.

Which is not to say that you can't use a Loupedeck with PM, though I only have experience with the newer CT unit.  Any of the Photo Mechanic keyboard shortcuts can be mapped to various Loupedeck CT knobs or buttons.    I'm currently in the process of making a "custom profile" for the way I use PM -- there are a few keyboard shortcuts that just never stick in my head, so mapping them to labeled buttons does actually help me.   There is currently a semi-official "custom profile" for Photo Mechanic on the Loupedeck site (again for using with the CT) but right now it is Windows-only. https://loupedeck.com/en/profiles

My question: What specific functionality in Photo Mechanic would you like the Loupedeck to handle? Is there something beyond the keyboard shortcut mapping that makes sense in a PM workflow?
