why? Most people using the tenkey on a regular basis are using tab/arrows and shortcuts to move about spreadsheets/etc, so mouse locale is unimportant. Or are you meaning the (horrible) macro'd in numpads that tenkeyless boards have?I agree that the numpad shouldn't be on the same side than the pointing device.
Keyboards really are a very personal thing. It's no wonder there are a billion different kinds out there and people still modify them heavily to suit their needs.i use right hand for both mouse and tenkey, in saying that i usually have mouse relatively close to kb, I am used to having a small desk. Using kb and mouse my arms are perpendicular to my chest, with only a reduction of 15-20cm between hands moving right hand to numpad.
Hard to choose. I like the first one but I am not fond of the black bottom row.
Can't decide which of these colour schemes to choose for my custom keycaps. Opinions?
Huh, good point.Personally I find the white letters on Orange keys easier to pick out at a glance.
Why such a bright colour scheme?!
Do you think white would suit the bottom row better?
That perfectly makes sense. I think the bottom row should be the same colour than the modifier, except for the spacebar (like the overcast set). having a black line above and below the alphas gives it a vertically compressed looks that annoy me.Do you think white would suit the bottom row better?
Yeah I know about the overcast GB, but with shipping this is going to be even more expensive than importing the keys from WASD, and I really want the keycaps to be mine. Also I need german ISO layout and they don't seem to offer keys for Ü Ö Ä or the number row the german layout uses. I'm also going for a split backspace and an R1x1.75u key for the up arrow, which I can only get at WASD, so while I'm paying shipping for that, might as well get all the keys there.
They do look pretty darn good, though.
