I just got my Model01 and I’m going through the painful learning curve with it. I’m using the default firmware (QWERTY) and I have to admit it is a steeper curve than I was expecting. Typing is generally ok, but the modifiers are where I am having the most difficulties.
However, I do have one fairly big issue. My right index tends to overshoot the ‘H’ and hit the Enter button quite frequently. Although this is annoying enough when typing normally, it is actually quite disruptive in chat windows/etc where I tend to send out messages that are incomplete, and un-edited.
So I was thinking of a couple of different solutions.
- Making the Enter require a modifier (ie: Fn-Enter), but that seems like it might be even more of a pain
- Make the Enter key require a longer press before it is activated. That way, an accidental overshoot won’t actually trigger it.
I am leaning more towards Option 2, but am not sure how to do something like that. I’ve read through the Wiki fairly quickly, but having never programmed Arduino before, I’m not entirely sure where to start.
Is something like that fairly simplistic to accomplish?
