I just picked up the Model01 a couple of weeks ago, and have been slowly retraining myself to type with it. While the actual typing itself is getting better, I am still struggling on re-learning all the modifier keys. To make things more complicated, I do a lot of work in IntelliJ which uses a significant number of modifier key combinations in shortcuts. To this extent, I find the lack of an Alt key on the left hand side very difficult to work with.
I can only presume that others here use IntelliJ as well; are you using the default layout for the Model01 or have you found you needed to remap IJ shortcuts or the Model01 keymap to better handle the shortcuts?
Is there a good approach to adding the Alt modifier on the left hand side? I’ve considered using Fn-Cmd for Alt, but that throws off most of the short cuts which use Alt since the vast majority of keys are mapped to other keys when using the Fn modifier.
I’ve considered the Butterfly key but it isn’t in a convenient location on the keyboard (on the right hand side).
Has anyone come up with a good solution for this?
