How are you not fan of tactile bumps? I don't like to have to look to the keyboard in order to know where my hands are at :biggrin:



--- Quote from: Bambino;465883 ---I like this idea.  I think I would find it useful to have a nub on the 5, 6, and 7 keys.

Nice. I hope more people shows interest but I'm afraid we're one of the only who want that :frown:

There's no reason my unicomp should have a bump on the F and J keys, as one is on the top row, between the Y and G, and the other is on the bottom between Q and K.

As a result, I've gotten good at ignoring them. I can place m hands where they need to go just fine, and I prefer the "look" of the keyboard without the nubs. Still, if I were into them, I'd prefer they be on more keys.

Fair enough.

In R4 I'll be ordering extra home row keycaps with the center nub. I wish I could get those for Number and Function row :(

F u r u y :
Done!

Melissa told me that they make keycaps with nub for Row 1, which comprehends Number and Function rows (in the OP I thought that Function was Row 5). When 7bit make those available in R4 I'll give a update here.

It seems you have been confused with the keyboard row count with the row numbering with respect to the key profile.

top row F1-F12 (R4)
number row (R4)
what follows are: R3, R2 (home row), R1, R1 (where modifiers and space bar are).


R5 keys actually exist and are used on KBTalking RACE. They are a tad taller than  R4 and are rarely used in nowadays' keyboards
