Cintiq Expresskeys not all working correctly in CSP?

I just had to refresh my entire computer system, and I lost all my Clip Studio Paint settings, as well as my Cintiq settings.
I've re-created my preferred Expresskey settings now (I use very few of them: one key each for Undo and Redo, one to toggle all palettes, and I use one touch strip to change brush size), but the Undo/Redo keys don't do anything now -- everything else works fine.
Testing the keys themselves seems to indicate that there's nothing wrong with them, and Wacom Tablet Properties says the settings are still there, so I'm at a loss. I've even tried setting the keys to "Back" and "Forward" rather than setting a keystroke macro for ctrl-z and ctrl-y, but to no avail.
Is there a setting I'm forgetting, hidden somewhere, that will make this work? I'm really hoping I'm just being my usual dumb self here, and there's an obvious fix. Is there one? Help!

Its a long time ago and so I'm not sure why I set this ( buts its always worked)... I change the shortcut key settings in CSP to just z instead of CTRL Z and y instead of CTRL y. I actually then put them onto the touchstrip which is great because i can tap it like a button if I want a single undo but i can also rub up or down the strip to scroll through the history. I assume you are assigning the settings to actual CSP and not to an old MS5 icon in the Wacom settings ?
I set the other spare hand side buttons to Shift, Ctrl, Alt, and Space.... To change brush size I hold down the ctrl and alt buttons and drag the pen to the size I want. I always need just one more button i.e. do I use the last one for Tab or for Space ??? i end up butting Tab on a button on the right hand set but then find I rarely use it from there

Thanks for commenting.
Oddly, after assigning a couple OTHER Expresskeys as Undo/Redo (i.e., I had set buttons 1 and 2 as Undo and Redo and it didn't work, so I tried setting buttons 3 and 4 for the same), the ones I had tried to assign those functions before started working.
I am very confused by this, and now I'm wary of changing anything. It won't hurt to have two buttons each for Undo & Redo of course, but that is some strange behavior.
Makes me wonder if I need to uninstall/reinstall CSP again, particularly since I also noticed another strange thing CSP is doing, but that's not necessarily germane here, so I'll start another thread on that topic.

LOVE THIS ~ putting UNDO into a touch strip to show History @888toto Thanks!
What an excellent idea …given the much better option of immediate real physical ROTATION of the 22HD Touch device itself (or the 'touch gesture' command to invoke it) I had been looking to replace/remove the Rotate command on the touch strip.
Since I only seem to trigger ROTATE when I don't want to and then have to go back and correct it it's been quite annoying ~ would be interested to learn other alternative configurations for the CINTIQ touch strips since pan/scroll zoom etc are also easily handled with Touch gestures
