Title: My ergonomic center focused 40% ortholinear layout (with Swedish as bonus)
Post by: fnurl on Mon, 07 November 2016, 15:48:05
I have been tinkering with a 40% layout that also has the Swedish chacters for a few months now and am happy enough with it to share it here. The last piece of the puzzle was applying it to a 40% ortholinear keyboard. I received mine a few days ago and was happy to find out that the layout worked out great (for me at least).

Most features have nothing to do with accommodating for the Swedish characters since the main point of the layout is to move stuff to the middle and center rather than having important keys all around the edges of the layout.

The ergonomics of the layout comes from the following:

Hi fnurl..

There's only so much one can do on flat keyboards..  wrist angle makes all the difference in the end..


I've messed with layouts for a whole year before coming to that conclusion..

Yeah... can't argue with that. I'm hoping it will be better than a standard layout on an ordinary keyboard though. Will just have to see :)
