Dual role caps lock (ctrl/esc) on Matias boards
« on: Sat, 28 June 2014, 05:54:17 »
I believe that this is best implemented in the firmware. This means that the user can just plug in the keyboard to any computer, running any OS and get dual-role functionality without spending time on setting everything up correctly.

Nobody has done this yet. Do Matias boards have this feature, or will it become available on future models?

Can you elaborate on what exactly you mean by "Dual role caps lock (ctrl/esc)"?

Caps lock acts like ctrl if held down, but becomes an esc if pressed and released.

Matias have had even dual role space bar since two decades ago. Kudos!
