Re: Help: Beamspring 3101 controller won't slide off

It could just be the fly plate getting bent out of shape. Though, I'm not sure if that's realistic. In any case, I mention it because it's something that you can easily adjust. https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?p=445433#p445433 Yeah I did saw that but i am not sure that's the case with mine sin...

Re: Help: Beamspring 3101 controller won't slide off

Ok, it's time for an unpopular opinion: The backspace icon should never have been an arrow, considering all other arrows in the keyboard indicate movement.
