What's the second R1 2u Backspace in the Extension kit for?

The Tab and Backspace key have been added so that you can use the N9 modifiers with other alphas, while you are still using keys from the Base kit to fill a keyboard with the Dolch colorway.

For example....



Let's say you used the keys enclosed in blue to fill out a standard ANSI TKL with GMK Dolch + red or teal accents.

You can use the remaining modifiers to fill out an additional 60% using alphas from any other set, plus modifier keys enclosed in red -- so it adds availability of a second set of potential modifiers for mixing-and-matching.

I hope this makes sense.

May solicit for a Chinese vendor to facilitate logistics.

Spacebars don't have a row designation as they are all convex keys.

F13 is in the Extension kit! R0 is likely not projected to be done for this set. Reasons explained previously, but my own preference is essentially what it boils down to. 1-1-2-3-4-5 ftw.

+1

I will consider if there is enough interest (I'm tallying up responses) to hit MOQ.

I am not in the position to force vendors to pick up kits to "boost to MOQ", but I will consider it in the case that there are enough ISO users (at the very least 50 kits; better if 75-100) to purchase an International support kit.

Quick musings ahoy!

The base kit is missing the R3 \| key. Everything else is perfect.

In the extension kit, I'd add a second 1U R5 Alt key (but don't touch the AltGr key!).

F13 is mod-colored (which is fine by me), but some people prefer it alpha-colored. Is there some kind of consensus (or attempt at it)?

Serious question: what is the extra 2.0U R1 Backspace key for? I've seen it in a few recent ICs lately, and I still don't understand what it is for.

I will consider the R3 backslash/pipe. Not sure if it will be added yet.

Will consider a second 1u R5 Alt, but the Extension is already quite chunky, so we'll see if additions make a big difference once quotes come in.

F13 will stay modifier-colored out of preference. I don't think it fits to have it alpha-colored.

As for your 2u R1 Backspace question, please refer to a previous answer I provided on this thread. Thanks.

It does... and it begs an uncomfortable question: how about an additional 1.25U Shift key in the same kit, for the same reason?

If this is to cover two ISO kits, I find it much harder to justify given the proportion of users, so it is likely that the idea won't sail.

hi son, just wondering.. are the print/scroll/pause legends going to stay as they are? i think prt sc (sys rq)/scroll lock/pause (break) would fit really nicely with the classic theme.

i'm being super super nitpicky though; those three legends aren't gonna stop me from getting that R5 :thumb:

Yeah, I know what you mean, but there's also plenty of sets that already did it, so figured I should change a few things up. Something refreshing, though I know exactly what you mean about the legends.

for sure, that's totally understandable. i figured that's why you went for them.

I just realized that this is R5! It's in the title, the description, the kit renders... somehow I still missed it. Is R5 making a comeback?

Btw, I noticed that icon mods is an option in your form. If you choose not to go that route, then GMK ThinkCaps will have an icon modifier kit compatible with Dolch (given that you are not using the R4 Windows keys).
