On the Mac Kit would you consider adding more function keys up to F19?
From another Mac user: Please either add those keys to the F-row kit, or not at all.
Sub-TKL builds are way more popular these days. If someone already skips the F-row kit, what would they need F16-19 for? Seems wasteful.

Good point. It does add quite a few extra keys for what seems a very small group.

That could be a good solution, or they could be broken out into a separate kit. It's six additional keys. Since it's Keyreative, there's no MOQ on individual keys or kits, right? I know this would add complexity by adding another SKU but I think it would be cool for some Mac users since it's basically never offered. Another benefit could be for TKL Mac users allowing them to use F13, F14 and F15 rather than Print, Pause and Num Lock since those functions don't exist.

Since we're changing traditions here, on mac keyboards underscore is vertically aligned with + which I think looks excellent and balances the key quite a bit. I bet not many people realise that it is underscore that's above the minus, not vice versa considering that there is a + sign on the right, so I think not going "by the book" with underscore makes a lot of sense.

I am a little bit confused about what you are saying, or maybe I am just misinterpreting you.

Having the underscore center height aligned with the plus sign is exactly what makes it hard to understand. Is it a minus symbol or an underscore? GMK/Cherry actually has the underscore in the correct place so not sure why it needs to be less understandable by moving it up? It makes no sense to me, but please correct me if I misunderstood your request  ;)

Hey now. Mac layouts are all about less understandable. Clearly it's what the people want!

What I mean is that in my opinion no one cares if it's an underscore or a minus there, I for one was for a longest time thinking that the upper symbol was a minus (since plus is also an upper legend). The reason I was not actually bothered by that is I know that it's a dash and it's an underscore when pressed with shift without really looking at legends.

Let's put it bluntly, I am offering to sacrifice "correctness" to visual appearance :)

I understand if no one cares for that, but I gotta try :D GMK legends just don't look good from the aesthetical standpoint IMO

I don't know if you've already come to a conclusion on this but I wish you could make an alpha kit with the f row keys or at least a dual-color f row kit like the one in the render. Imo its seems kinda extra to take the time to make a kit only for the f row... I don't know if I'm just being nooby but it just doesn't seem all that necessary...


Edit: Please tell me if I'm being stupid or just correct me if I'm wrong.

For KAT, there is a downside to having too many SKUs, but outside of that, breaking out something like an F-row can be a net positive for common keyboard users. 

Adding them to the alphas would increase the price of that kit for everybody, even those who don't use F-keys.  If the designer really needs to decrease total SKU count, they should add the F-rows into one of the sets supporting TKL and other row-staggered layouts.

Most alpha kits that include F-row kits are intended as alternatives to the default alphas, rather than here where there are two true core alpha kits.

I would really appreciate an R2 backslash in the international kit for US ISO compatibility. Otherwise I would have to buy the whole ortho kit just for one key.
They did so with modern dolch 2.

100% in either way, but I'm really hoping for full icon mods instead of text based for Control, Code, and Alt (and maybe even Fn), since those are already offered in other kits.

Thanks for any help I know I'm being nooby. :p

That is also a no go  ;). The whole point with running dual colorways is that people can mix and match if they want to, not force it on them. The function row kit will likely be pretty cheap so buying both shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise I'd have to offer BoW, WoB and TWO mixed sets (depending on which one u choose for mods). It seems pretty unreasonable imho.

Kits look really awesome now. Only thing for me (and I totally get if you don't want this) is it would be nice to have the 1.5u "System" in the basekit, or just anything 1.5u R1 that isn't just Control and Alt. For WKL boards having Ctrl/Alt and Alt/Win is a nice layout, and having just any other label on a single key in the basekit would solve having to buy a whole other kit just for that one different key.

But other than that I can't really complain. Looks like it's easier to make a HHKB layout now and I basically would only have to get the base kit and NorDe to cover most of my existing or planned boards.

Hmm... that said, would you consider breaking out space bars into their own kit? Right now, anyone with any kind of split that isn't ortho would have to get the entire ortho kit just to have spacebar caps. That feels a bit over the top. Yes, again, looking to my own future purchase of the Kendo... :D

You have a GMK set in your signature that also has offset arrows. How do you feel about those?

I really like the look of an all WOB board with BOW escape and enter. Would you consider adding an accent kit so folks could add just a few accent keys of the opposite color?
Maybe something like: Esc plus some/all variants of Enter, ISO Enter and numpad Enter.
The kits are really shaping up nicely!

I thought I had already posted this but can't find it in my posts; the numbers on the number row look too small and this looks especially bad next to the tertiary legends and Ŗ in the NorDe kit.

Also, have you made up your mind on if you're going to include Colevrak+?

had to take a look after you pointed it out and now i wish i had never read this comment  :-X

numrow numbers could really use being a little bigger or the other icons on the keys a little smaller, either one would work imo.

Two for Mac Icon Mods. This would allow an all-icon modifier set with the Icon Mods sets for Mac users (who are more likely to want icon mods on their bottom row).

You donít even need a second Mac set. Iíd be happy to spend the money for both icons and text in the Mac set.

does this mean we also get icon mods for non-mac users? I believe theres also demand for that, and wouldn't make sense to include only 1 of them

I'm pretty sure every other KAT kit has had a spacebar in the alphas and I don't see why this set shouldn't have one either.

Please again. Tell me if I've been misled.

KAT Space Cadet doesn't have space in alphas ;)

Thank you for your suggestions though, I will go through the whole thread at a later stage when I am redoing the kits and give this another look. Big update will come later.

Timings depend a little bit on how the following KAT sets will turn out. I believe we have another one shipping soon. I have a date set already but don't want to communicate it until I know it will happen. It's not too far off though. More on this later.

Pretty much a less aggressive KAT form, nice work.

Two more things. Can we get a 1.5u \ key in the alphas? I feel it would be a waste to have to buy a whole separate mod set for one key... And is it possible to get a 6.25u spacebar in the alphas? I'm pretty sure every other KAT kit has had a spacebar in the alphas and I don't see why this set shouldn't have one either.

Please again. Tell me if I've been misled.

KAT Space Cadet doesn't have space in alphas ;)

Thank you for your suggestions though, I will go through the whole thread at a later stage when I am redoing the kits and give this another look. Big update will come later.

I see. The only thing that I'm noticing is that the KAT space cadet set had a different color spacebar in the mods. I don't feel like you should put a different color spacebar in the mods because then we would again have one spacebar that some people don't want and would lack the spacebar that they did want. I feel that an addition of a spacebar in the alphas would appeal to many as they wouldn't have to buy an extra spacebar set or mod set just for one key just like the \ key that I mentioned earlier.

Thanks for all of the support and willingness to accept feedback! I honestly just fell in love with the iron180 render that you had made, and would like to attempt to recreate it.

Timings depend a little bit on how the following KAT sets will turn out. I believe we have another one shipping soon. I have a date set already but don't want to communicate it until I know it will happen. It's not too far off though. More on this later.

Thanks man!

Will we be able to purchase mixed units?  Bow for modifiers and and WoB for alphas and vice versa?

Yes, they are kits, so you are free to pick 'n' mix however you please.

Ergo and Mac mod icons are coming. Added in the todo list  ;)


Big excite now. Thanks for all your work on this set!
Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out when the QC issues with the molds are resolved.
In for ergo + alphas in BoW for sure. Possibly others too.

Any chance we could see a 1.5 Function in the extra mods kits? This would helpful for filling out the area to right of the spacebar for the Ion Zenith and the Wyvern (probably others too).
Really fantastic work on this so far. Looking forward to the kit updates!

A spacebar kit woule be really nice. Otherwise you would have to buy the whole ortho set just for the split spacebar.
