MAC problem on keyboard

I am running CS4 and have a Wacom Intuos3, I am trying to define keystrokes shortcuts for the left and right buttons.

I have a problem as I am finding it impossible to display the following Command+ as I have a wireless keyboard without numberpad.
I have got Command- to display OK, but because the + sign is on top of the = sign it seems impossible to get plus sign to come up.

Can anyone suggest how I can sort this please as I reeally need this plus sign on other keystrokes.

I have tried Command - Shift +/= and that doesn't work either

any help ideas please?

Hmm, 'command shift +/=' should work, that's the same keystroke that enlarges text in Safari (the shortcut in Safari is ⌘+) [Windows users probably won't be able to see that symbol on the left of the plus sign]. It's odd that it's not working for you. Is there any chance that key combo is assigned to something else?

The other option would be to go to System Preferences/Keyboard/Keyboard Shortcuts and create a new keyboard shortcut for the right button in CS4. You could then change it to some combo which doesn't involve the shift button.

no not assigned to anything else Tim, the + and the = are on the same key and it seems impossible to separate them, now I wish I had a number pad!
will try the sys/pref as you suggest as let you know thank you ....
