Do you really need a slider for everything? If you do, consider to use nulls as controllers instead.

First world problems ní all. Itís best learning simple expressions which will enable you to customise your own controls

Well, you have finger movements(?) on sliders... Are they morphs or bone movements?
Though it is less than ideal, sliders are designed to probably contain 10-20 functions. To go beyond that is using LW in a way that it wasn't designed for... unless you have a 20 foot 16K screen. :)
I'd suggest looking at other ways of moving digits.

Paul, I recommend using Nulls for controllers for animation. Once you get the hang of it, it is simple and fast to set up. Also less cluttered.

I'd recommend RH's Rigging tutorials for an in depth treatment of the subject.

I agree. I gave up on Sliders many years ago. Nulls are much easier and more flexible to use as controllers. You can use Item Shape to give them labels, practical shapes, connecting lines, and more controller options besides only 'sliding'.

As Kryslin mentioned a lot less clutter too, which was a big deal for me since I often work on a small mobile display.

Not a slider replacement, but useful slider script...
