Custom Keyboard Layouts for F(x)tec Pro1

Recommended Posts

As I'm investigating how to implement qwertz support I thought it could be nice to have support for gamepads too. Any gamer out there wishing for a such a feature? Maybe it just does not make sense if you do not have analog stick support anyway.

On Droid 4 I was using app GameKeyboard and it was perfect for gaming. On Pro1 service for this app just can't start...

Can I get a picture of a production QWERTZ to make sure this was not changed since? Currently busy doing the mapping and I would hate to have to do it twice.

Here is a first draft for QWERTZ layout.
The ALT layer is still missing, the Fx layer may need to be adapted for QWERTZ as it should currently be the same as on QWERTY.

Known issues:

  • First row shift not acting as fn.
  • Fn characters on standard letter keys missing or wrong.

except that shift + ß gives ẞ but that is probably like it should

Yes that's how it was done in FinQwerty I'm not sure if it makes sense though, I can't think of any instance of upper case ß in german.

I am not familiar with German letters so I don't know either. I see that you implemented FX combinations also (like FX + c gives calculator). Nice! So far I haven't seen any issues with the keymap.

Yes those ones were taken over from the qwerty variant and may need reviewing for qwertz DE.

Which is your native language? Why did you get a qwertz then?

I am from Finland. QWERTZ suits quite well for us since we have Ä and Ö letters also and instead of Ü we are using Å. Then Y and Z needs to be swapped. So, only minor remapping is needed from QWERTZ to Scandic.

So what's wrong with the layouts provided by FinQwerty? Is it the missing Fx and Alt layers?

I could do a QWERTZ - FI layout if you want. Should I take a look at the FinQwerty variant?

LATER: I see you actually already provided what you are looking for:

It was added as a character to official German rather recently (June 2017), for the case of writing an existing text in all caps (as an example the Corbusier WP theme I use for my blog has this odd behaviour for some headers).
I guess It is not that likely to actually type it though. But that is now possible.
