Any chance you'd consider putting the green legend on any other key instead? Cause in HHKB the colors are pretty red/yellow-ish




Red appears on 3 rows. Two shades of yellow appears twice. Red, brown, yellow and purple they all look kinda similar.

There is green on ESC also. But on HHKB you can put Super instead of ALT here.

You should take advantage for the opportunity to improve some of the euro legends that ePBT has wrong, like ´`| and ¨^~ keys. Make them closer to GMK to get them right.

I did a lot of work on alignments on the whole template regarding legends.

What's the issue with those legends? The size?

Not a deal breaker at all, but could it be possible to have Alt Gr keys?

i've thought about it yes but the issue is it will add too much keys in Base / Rainbow / Mono kits :/ sorry

I will post some pictures later for the main offenders, for you to analyze them and decide if they worth a fix.

Caveats of using Super instead of Alt: it wouldn't be the correct legends for people who aren't on Mac, and it still doesn't fix the issue of the set not having enough green in this case (which I agree that it doesn't).

Perhaps it would be reasonable to make the R3 1.75u Control key green instead? I believe this would be a satisfactory solution for everyone.

Edit: Here's a mockup of what I mean, before vs after:

Indeed r3 control looks like a cool trade off. Personnaly i like both i don't really mind and even if you still want red you can keep the Caps Lock icon cap.

Regarding the time frame of the potential GB, i don't think about it untill i got the samples to check if this is possible with ePbt. When i have an idea i'll post it.

Hi there, have you ever considered making a 1.5u (if I'm not mistaken) FN key for the upcoming Bella kit by KBDFans?
I am interested in this keycaps set but it seems that it is missing the support for the FN key in Bella.

That keyboard is fully programmable, so you can assign that key to whatever you like. Most people use 1.5u Alt, not Fn, on layouts like that.

Since i got asked few times lately, clarifying the current situation of this project.

  • Waiting for samples with the new ePbt tooling for reverse dyesub
  • Ergo kit is planned
  • No date of GB / shipping estimations untill the prototypes are validated
  • Some Collabs planned
  • Will there be a deskmat? Maybe

Why choose ePbt? Because the MOQ policy is way more flexible for child kits with less popularity like FR/BE/Norde/dvorak and so on. This set without this compatibility makes no real sense to me as i mainly made it for people not being able to get for example GMK Oblivion / Nord which are in the same tones / theme.

Another reason for this set -> PBT instead of ABS. I don't feel comfortable sinking more money into ABS sets until someone figures out a way to prevent shine.

Also, I know this is probably waaaay too late zekth, so feel free to disregard this, but I do love the way that the classic GMK legends were fixed in KAT Refined, to make them sharper and more legible. If that were possible for this, even in a R2, it would be legit.

read again, it's not about PBT or ABS, it's about that ePBT is producing it. Inifikey has proven that they have mastered reverse dyesub perfectly (e.g. pbt hive).

Legends were crisp but the color matching was off... It was supposed to be dark blueish gray and they were just as black like my other black pbt keycaps. I was able to sell them with profit luckily.

You need experts for color matching, like dixiemech for example has.

after checking this, yea you're right. the reverse dyesub and legends were good but the color matching was off. that's a big off if you want blueisch/gray keycaps and get black ones...

I am very tempted to join this: The set has nice colors, the material is shine-proof, and the vendors (KBDFans) have very competitive shipping costs. Above all, it includes a Nord set. Just hoping for a proper edition of some of the legends that have always being off the actual OG reference.

if people interested in other language i'm willing to add those if enough people interested in.
If cyrillic with R3:Tilde/GraveAccent/Ё, count me in.
If arabic with R3:Tilde/GraveAccent/ذ, count me in.
I assume the R4:Pipe/Backslash will be available through UK-ISO.
