D-pad hotkeys

Whilst Skyrim is easily one of the best games I have ever played, and I've played a lot, I just can't understand how they could get the hotkeys so wrong. They just don't work. Have I completely misunderstood how they work? How do you choose which hand changes to your hotkeyed spell/weapon? And how do you change back?

I have yet to figure out how to hotkey, I've just been using the favorite menu.

do you mean using left and right d-pad, as opposed to up or down? If so, I use a flame torch for the right press. I think you select (equip) the item using Y from main play screen and then press left or right for couple seconds, a number 1 or 2 will appear, (I cannot remember exactly).
I think the normal order of shortcuts using up d-pad is just alphabetical?
It works okay for me. I like it

You can hold right or left in an item in the favorite menu to hotkey it, you can only hotkey two items.

When in the favourites menu you can hold down left or right on the D-pad which assigns 1. or 2. next to the spell/weapon. However, when you then try to use it it seems to be fairly random as to which hand changes.
