Configuring Konfabulator for Tablet Use

Over the past few days I've been tweaking my Konfabulator settings to get things working just right on my tablet. I now have the Mini Digital Clock, Mini Battery, Mini Airport, and The Weather widgets running, with the clock and battery widgets floating above all windows.

But the most useful change I made was to assign a tablet button (Function-HotKey2) to simluate a keypress of the F8 key. This activates the Konspose feature, allowing me to see all of my widgets, including those usually hidden under maximized windows. Now I can litter my deskotp with widgets and have them all just a couple of buttons away, even with no keyboard attached. Cool!
