Is it possible with the NERD60 that I only turn on the led under the ESC key when I have installed led's on all switches ?

I don't believe it's possible with the firmware.

Does anyone know if the on-board SMD LEDs are the same as the ones used for the side LEDs? If they are, should I use the same resistor values?

on board smd leds? you mean the ones on the top side of the pcb? if so, they do work and yes same resistor values.
I wish it wasn't soon

Need another download link to the Nerd GUI.

Thank you also working for me now.

Another question:
Is it possible to add , , with the software to the fn layer ?

Depends on how you want to do that. I wanted to do something similar, but it would involve a major pain in the butt if you want to keep it based on the ansi layout, but still have iso-de as the standard layout the OS uses.
You could set up macro keys that just type the corresponding alt codes as an easy alternative.

I'm not familiar with the possibilities of this PCB or software, my answer is based on machine limitations.

You would have to set your input layout in your OS to iso-de to have native support.

I'll just write down which ansi signals you would need to trigger a , and output if the OS is set to german layout (you cannot trigger a native , or without using german layout in your OS):

ansi= ' triggers a output
ansi= [ triggers a output
ansi= ; triggers a output

Okay, thank you.  So I still have to use my autohotkey script.

If you are able to set up a macro in the programming software you could set them up to the according alt-codes. That way those outputs would not be machine dependant but saved on the board.

Alt+132= ; Alt+129= ; Alt+148= ; Alt+142= ; Alt+154= ; Alt+153=

I'm considering adding an indicator LED to my NerD 60.  I only have white 2x3x4 LEDs sitting around.  What's the best way to add an indicator LED for caps lock?  Should I get an LED holder or just solder straight to the PCB?  I also have SIP sockets lying around if those would be of use.

Straight on the PCB is perfect, no need for raisers or SIP.

I'm going to be installing the bluetooth kit on my NerD60 board.  I've read the instructions here: http://www.gonskeyboardworks.com/manuals/134-wireless-module-installation.html

Are there any other thoughts/instructions/best practices for working with this?  Installation?  Pairing?  Status LED's?  Thanks.
I'm back.
