Default Touch Bar - vs - Function Keys

Running PT 12.8.2 on a 2016 'Touch Bar' Mackbook Pro.

Does Pro Tools Support the Touch Bar? Will it ever?

If not is there a way to display the function keys? I am used to using them for swapping between editing modes.

Thanks for any help

Hope they do,someday, cause I just got myself the first MBP and that would be a very useful tool.
Peace

Hold down the "fn" key (lower left) and the old-school function keys will magically appear. This is configurable in the "System Preferences" (select "keyboard") -- there is a toggle for either function keys or expanded touchbar goodies.

There is a help topic on programming the function keys. Not sure if that is for the touchbar or for an external keyboard. It is accessed from "Terminal" (see the online help).

The touch bar has had some negative reviews, but it has some interesting potential...

Now that I used my MBP a bit it Im sure it would be a great idea to have some custom setup with protools and toucbar.
