Sweet. And I would 1000% be fine if it was some other generic word there like konstantin was suggesting. I personally have that key mapped to backspace on tap, control on hold and know that others may use it for FN or caps or whatever.

I just don't want tab or Esc because those are R2 and r1 respectively on all my boards and having either of those on R3 and another one on R2 or R1 is just goofy.

Maybe add prev/skip keys to the novelties kit if you're going to have multimedia keys?

The other kits look pretty spot on though.

Cool. I would stick with Ctrl because otherwise we have to choose an existing R3 1u legend (to keep the cost down). Not sure what the options are, off the top of my head.

Edit: C70 keyset has R3 1u Code.

It would make sense. I wasn't sure initially if people were on board with the media keys. The new poll seems to suggest so.

Please everyone fill out the new form if you haven't!

Thanks :)

FYI, any legend mold can be used on any row, except R0 and R5, as long as the key size stays the same. So a 1u Code mold can be used for any 1u Code key on rows 1–4.

Some useful legend-mold–related info from GMK:

I would snap this set up in a heartbeat if it had better UK ISO support.
Just R4 |\ and R3 #~ in the base would be fine but ideally full U.K. ISO even if itís an additional kit

ISO has been discussed at length in this thread... in summary: we decided to go with an ISO-US variant, instead of ISO-UK, because:

1. Less keys = less expensive base set;
2. While ISO-UK is arguably the most popular ISO layout, it doesn't outweigh the other international layouts;
3. ISO-UK and international kit sales in general are very poor relative to the base set.

So I added a NorDeUK option to the form. If there's enough interest, then we'll add it!

Our EU vendor really wants one... ;)

It went to NorDeUK. Don't forget to select it in the form. If there's enough interest, we'll add it.

I have to admit, I wasn't really aware of ISO-US before this IC... it's a more coherent solution to ISO compatibility.

A couple of thoughts, I really like the idea of using a dot dot the second alice B. Would it make sense to include a dot alongside the extra b in that kit?

Also it would be fun with some eye-bee-m novelties/artisans based on the work of Paul Rand.

I didn't know about that logo.

It's super nice, however I'm afraid we can't step into trademark territory...

As for the Dots, I have permission from Biip (original designer) to use them as novelties, so I won't put one in Extension.

As a UK user, I can survive with ISO-US and I think that's an efficient compromise. Thanks to stock colours, we can use GMK WoB NorDeUK++ if that hopefully gets a re-run this year.

 Any chance of offering Vim keycaps as an addon? I think that'd go nicely with the set and the thinkpad aesthetic. I really dig the set!!

Yeah, I agree. Maybe if there's room in the Extension kit. No promises.

Would love it if there was some way of inlcuding more ISO (UK) caps. I know there's a WoB NORDEUK GB going on but it's likely that it either won't run, or will arrive later than ThinkCaps.
