Apologies if this has already been asked but is there a "reset"  key on the tmk gui editor? Would love to be able to soft reset my HHKB without having to hard reset with the red button everytime I want to flash a new hex. Would be great to just be able to hit a key on the board to go into a flashable state.



unfortunately soft reset isn't  supported in keymap editor yet. I'll add that soon later.
You can use 'magic command' with LSHIFT+RSHIFT+Puase if your keymap has those keys.

I got the controller for my Pro 1 yesterday. Works like a charm. Easy to install and program :thumb:

hasu, thanks always, you won't be able to image how your works changed my life..
I just can't work with any other keyboards any more. you have full control of my life .....
I'm planning to buy one more controller, before that, I want to ask you something.

how many pairing info can the board save? & is there a way to switch between device without turning off the host bluetooth?
and how the bluetooth connection priority works?

I can switch device when I turn off the host bluetooth.

But I just want to know how many connection does the board can save.

and is there a way to switch device, without turning off the computer bluetooth?

In windows, to turn off the keyboard bluetooth, I have to delete the pairing or turn off entire bluetooth..

and ,,,

I don't care how much it cost, I would pay 1000 dollar, seriously

If you could upgrade the board just the bluetooth battery life and, this device switching function. and usb mini -> usb c....

The bluetooth module can store last eight pairing infos. Unfortunately I could not find how to switch between devices without disconnecting current device explicitly as you described. The module always tries to connect device connected last time automatically if it is not available second last one and so on.

Are there any specific instructions for using Atmel FLIP I should know about? I have Atmega32u4 selected, I generated a HEX from the online tool, I pressed the reset button on the back, but I'm getting an error that I could not read from or write to the USB device. I believe I have the correct driver installed because it shows up in the Device Manager as a libusb-win32 device.

has there been a working example of changing the actuation distance with the four calibration points? I'm very interested in doing this but I'm a bit frightened of messing up whatever value is stored in the BU9831's EEPROM. Even though the FC660C uses a very similar method (if not the same method) for its actuation distance, I'm sure that the particular addresses and instructions vary a bit.

No. Actuation point in HHKB cannot be changed from controller and you have to access the digipot from test points on switch PCB as you say. I didn't try to work with it and don't have any info about it except for ones on the first post. Read datasheet and write program to control the digipot.
