I’ve been using Model01 plugged to a Win10 computer for two weeks. I explained in other thread some thoughts about Spanish default mappings. Here are some thoughts not specific to the layout itself:
- This keyboard was designed for someone with different hand size than me. Pressing the fn stretches my hand in strange ways, reminding me every time about the issue.
- Lower row, lower edge is a bit too extreme to my taste.
- I feel this model01 was designed for writers first, American coders second.
Let me explain that last point. I’ve been editing lot of videos/audios lately and the keyboard feels quite unsuited to the task. Conventional workflow, select a piece of clip with the mouse, position it in the timeline, apply a keyboard combination to modify the clip.
If I want to ripple cut (Ctrl+Shift+X) I need to do a strech exercise with my left hand or take the hand back to the keyboard and do a dual hand move. Maybe I want to move to the next clip using Ctrl+Alt+Right Arrow. That becomes Ctrl+Alt+Function+L. Maybe I need to review another window. Alt+tab requires me to move my hand back from the mouse to the right half of the keyboard. Fortunately I don’t have to do Ctrl+Alt+Supr as often
I don’t know if there is any solution for this particular issue of having to type complex shortcuts while using a mouse on the other hand.
