Please consider adding 1.25u Fn key to the base kit since this key is widely used in full size, tkl and many other 65 75 layout keyboards.

the base kit has 1.25 "menu", which operates as Fn.

thanks for the feedback!
The 1.25u Menu in my keyboard open a menu on Chrome, I don't think it represents the Fn. But it may be different on your keyboard, I guess......

Menu is not a valid replacement for Fn — it doesn't make sense. However, the opposite (Fn as Menu) can somewhat work. If I were you, I'd change the Menu to Fn; here's why:
  • Fn is the more common legend, used on a wide variety of boards and sizes. Menu has limited uses, primarily for “standard”/non-programmable TKL and full-size boards with 6.25u bottom rows. But in these cases, Fn is a viable replacement for it, whereas Menu isn't really a viable replacement for Fn in other cases.
  • Fn is also more popular overall, so it would be the preferred legend choice here.
  • The alternative would be to add a R4 1.25u Fn key alongside the Menu key, but I think there's no need for that since Fn can substitute for Menu, as described above.

I actually like it with the full text mods as it looks much cleaner and allows the novelties to stand out more.

No option for full mod coloured frow? I think base and alt alphas kit would look really weird without it.

Oh yeah, I didn't even see this, good catch. Maybe the creator could add the F keys that are missing in that color in the alt alphas kit

Hello again. I figured it was worth asking:

What is the possibility of adding a white accent enter/return? I ask because, with a white accent enter, those who use the Kana kit would have an option for two accent enter/spacebar colors.

Also, a question: in the Kana kit, the second 1u pipe key, is it also r4?

Once again, great work.

Hmm, I suppose I never considered having the white as an accent, but that brings up a great point. I will take that into account with the upcoming changes.

For the kana kit, the second 1u pipe is r4 yes. Apologies for the confusing placement of it in the render (r3 row instead of r4).

Thanks for the feedback!!

Are you sure about that? The 1u \|ム key is supposed to be R3, as pictured in the render, not R4. This is in order for the ISO/JIS kana compatibility in the kit to be correct (which is the reason why some of the other keys are in that kit to begin with). In other words, the current placement of that key in the render is totally correct.

What you could do, if you want to have pipe on R4 in the katakana kit so it matches its position in the base kit, is change the R3 \|ム, R4 <>ロ keys to R3 #~ム, R4 \|ロ, respectively. But this would require two new molds to be produced, and you would potentially have to communicate it with MiTo (who is the original author of the katakana subs that you're using) to get the vectors sorted out with GMK.

That being said, in my opinion, it's fine the way it is. White accents are an interesting prospect, though.

Mito and I are on great terms since I will be transitioning to the mono katakana molds he helped develop. Thanks for the help Kon!

All the better :) Sure thing! I'm still hoping you'll consider the Menu/Fn swap. Perhaps Meta might be a good middle ground?

I see a R3 pipe key and a R4 "<>" key in Alt alphas kit but these are not in base kit. I believe these 2 keys can be good in base since they stand for ISO US. If I were you, I would consider replacing ISO UK in base with ISO US to reduce some keys and potentially reduce some bucks. This change will upset ISO UK users tho  :blank:.

Only problem with this is that there are wayyyy more ISO UK users than ISO US users. I would only be satisfying a few people by dissatisfying many unfortunately.

I'm surprised a vintage perfume bottle silhouette was not included in the novelties. That's the first thing i think of when I hear "lavender". That, lotion, then the actual plant/flower.

Yeah it was an idea in the beginning actually, but it became difficult to convey “perfume bottle” in a vector format without it being confused with all sorts of other things. Currently we’re tinkering with throwing out the bow novelty for a lavender in a vase design.

Can you add a R3 1u pipe key "\|" to the base kit like you did with the alt alphas please? So the base can cover both iso UK and US at the same time, it's just one small key. Also you already have 2 stunning ISO enter novelties so I think this key will do very well with this set.

Hi yeah, this is an idea I have really been considering adding because I think a lot of people identify lavender with the scent, and candles would visually be a good nod to that.
