After using my M01 for several months and experimenting with different layouts, I’ve identified my least favorite keys as P and Q (Qwerty locations). When I am typing, it feels like a big stretch to be able to maneuver my pinkies to reach these corners, and I am considering switching to use my ring fingers. From what I understand, that shouldn’t make a dramatic difference in my typing speed. Whereas most of the time my palms stay down, I almost have to pick up my palms up to reach these keys with pinkies.
I have what someone would probably call medium-sized hands, but is it possible that my pinkies are just shorter than average? I would not go back to a “normal” keyboard in a million years, but this seems like it has been the biggest drawback to the ergonomic shape. Have others had to make this adjustment? I suppose I could even try to use the Z and / keys as my home position. Anyone tried this?
