Capture One (win) fix for non-working buttons / dials

This article helps to make a fix for Capture One plugin's non working buttons or dials (especially for Windows & Loupedeck+ users).

Capture One on windows, using any external console (like Loupedeck), can be controlled only via shortcuts. Loupedeck+ (on Windows) is currently using an old Capture One plugin and that plugin has fixed shortcuts (which user cannot update). Some of the shortcuts might not be the same what has been defined in Capture One's shortcut list.

In short: You need to create a custom action (for button) or custom adjustment (for dial) that has the exact same shortcut defined in Capture One - and assign that to your device.
