i see. interesting. btw, i wonder if you would do a screenshot? for each of layout when a modifer is pressed.

i'd enjoy seeing that, but i think if you use that for your pages (or in addition to the hand-drawn ones), i think your readers would enjoy that too.

anyway, i saw that you mapped the left Win key to Return! Great idea! I've now copied that. Thanks!

the Return key is a major problem of the PC keyboard.

it's incredible that on qwertz and azerty layouts, there are actually 2 more keys to the right of right pinky before reaching the Return.

i think the Return key is at the same level of RSI risk as qwerty, if not worse.
