I whipped this up in KLE using keys only found in your average GMK base kit, it's pretty straight forward, basically an 1800 layout split down the middle with the nav cluster moved to the right Command cluster/Space area. any feedback or thoughts? as a left thumb space user, I dont mind the lack of right side space, but I understand others may prefer it flipped, or just hate it all together.

Looks good, will take a while to find the random keys in the bottom row but they're more useful than half a spacebar which you never use.  I'd have to put delete next to F12...

Are you thinking DSA caps though?  If not the bottom row will be all over the place height wise.

thats a good point... I'm a GMK man myself, maybe I'll have to do a little more regiggering

due to some intelligent feedback here, I've adjusted the design accordingly, still using base kit caps but more in line with the realities of cherry profile

Yay, glad to see some more one piece split 1800 layouts ;D

after using mine for a while I found myself trying to reach B with my right thumb while typing in non-English languages
at some point I almost wished to have TWO Bs, one on each side :p but I'm training myself to adept

due to some revisions and help over on my keebtalk thread for this,  The layouts been refined for a little more TGR feel and less downbubble but to the right.
