GMK/OG Cherry French/Canadian keycaps
« on: Sat, 25 January 2020, 22:54:22 »
I was curious if there were ever any GMK sets (or OG Cherry for that matter) that included the appropriate accents in a QWERTY layout rather than AZERTY. If anyone's got a lead on where I might be able to source that, it would be much appreciated!

Don't think there's sets in OG Cherry that do this in Canadian layout. And your best bet for GMK is getting an international / NordeUK kit. But I'm not sure what you mean by accents.

Canadian Multilingual looks like this. Very common to see it here, although I've never seen it on any current or OG keycap sets.

There was this Canadian (at least, I think it is.. doesn't fully match the layout you posted) G81-3077SAU sold on eBay, which presumably has original Cherry dyesubs (nothing in the images leads me to believe otherwise, I doubt they're BSP or anything other than original Cherry). Only ever seen these pictures of it though. The set on the 356CL has the Fix Maj caps lock.

That's an interesting layout. It should be very rare out of Canada. The closest thing is a Danish or Finish layout.
