The 75% layout I want
« on: Thu, 18 April 2019, 02:58:08 »


This is my last attempt in designing a layout I would use everyday and i think will be the last :)
To keep a reasonable cost, the keycaps would be DSA with laser printing - about 20 of them have non standard legend, more if I were to go with a variable height profile such as SA.

Key points (pun intended):
-Win key out of the way, but still present (where 60% keeps put the ESC)
-Big ass DEL in my ideal place
-No right CRTL
-All arithmetic symbols all together similar to a numpad (and not duplicated within the main area)
-Proper spacing for arrows and important special keys such as ESC, Home/end, PRTSCR).
-Revised qwerty ITA layout with most used letters within easy reach. Will require actual testing with legend caps and therefore is subject to changes.
-7u spacebar is still big but available relatively easy
-Planning to go with 20 or 21mm keys spacing

That looks a bit awkward to type on especially with the big enter. You might find yourself accidentally pressing the + key rather than the enter key .

That is why i prefer ANSI, because on Iso layouts they put the enter too big so i get more typing mistakes.

If I could eliminate a key, it would be Caps Lock. I've disabled mine.

I have Caps set to Ctrl on all my boards.

It might be better to have the navigation keys closer together. Right now you have Home and End far away from arrow keys. No PgUp and PgDn keys?

It could be awkward to type Ctrl-Y, Ctrl-T etc. without a right Ctrl key.

BTW, you've got two F10 keys.

Why do you need such a huge delete key? Big ass enter key? Why do you need all math related functions in the nav cluster? I'm confused.

What is your daily work flow like? Maybe you have a specific use case in mind?
