I am switching to a m01 from an original ergodox, where i had four large vertical bars in the thumb cluster. Left side is space, backspace, and the right side is enter, space. So, i am doing the space and backspace thing quite well, but find myself hitting shift instead of enter a lot (the first thing i did was invert shift and alt/cmd on the thumb rows as I apparently have short thumbs or something).
Anyway, I need to train a new reflex. I feel like the enter key is kind of misplaced where it is (as a programmer, i hit enter a lot more than a text writer, probably). So, what do y’all think? Train myself to do the index reach to enter as shipping, use function space (the default mapping), or do something funky?
I could, for example, move alt to only on the left cluster, and shoehorn enter in at the far left of the right cluster. I don’t really need two alt keys, i just use it as my i3 system key, so it doesn’t need to be on both sides, and i don’t use emacs so i don’t find myself in need of meta/super keys (or i could map them into the function layer if needed).
Anyone have a layout they really like on that front?
