Now I have to switch modes
from the activity to the device and select & execute the
command from there.
You don't - in any Activity you can customise ANY commands from ANY of its Devices that you're ever likely to use to any convenient hard or virtual button.
It's an example of what I said - the Devices area of the software is for use when setting things up, after that it will have very little use, and the Devices area on the remote should have no use at all.
