Additionally, if you can set up a key to auto repeat, you could for instance set up a re-distribute shields key, so that once you press it it sends that command every second or two until you press it again = auto re-distributing shields.
Yes this is what I'm doing. I have one auto - shield heal, and one auto-hull heal. I've inserted pauses in the up and down pressing of the keys, and also am careful to stagger activation of the cycles, so I don't run into a bottle neck. If I select a team mate, they will benefit from the heals depending on where I am in the cycle.

I'm just wondering if there are any latency issues doing it through a keyboard as opposed to using key binds.
