Top print only HHKB keycaps?
« on: Mon, 24 July 2017, 12:56:04 »
Hello
I'm about to buy a HHKB JP type-s and Haus controller.
I'm going to change the FN layer keys so the side print for FN layer become useless to me, and it looks kinda busy too...

Just wondering is there any HHKB keycap set without the side print? I still need the top print as I still not able to fully touch type yet.

They don't exist (unless you're willing to buy a HiPro board, but I'd assume you aren't).

You can buy JTK sliders and swap the caps, though.
ortho or shmortho

Closest you can come is to buy a white realforce and swap the keys.

you aren't stuck with the side printed keys...
you can always get the blanks, or you can get artisan blank keycaps.
or... additionally you can purchase one of the leopold capacitive keyboards, or realforce keyboards... just for the caps. and just sell it off afterwards.
most people wouldn't mind using one of those boards with the hhkb caps on it.
that is what i did. because the media side printed legends really bothered me aswell.
however. i don't mind the other side printed legends on the right hand side that you get with the fc660c keycaps.
here are my two boards.
