Help with TMK

1. Is there a good source that explains all the options in the TMK Editor and how they work? 2. For example, I'm trying to program the space bar so that when tapped it gives a space, but when held, it acts as a shift. Would it be correct to do this by using Action_Mods_Key, or Action_Mods_Tap_Key? 3...

Okay, I'll try prying the cap off gently.

If not dirt/debris, any ideas what might cause this behavior? And whether or not that would be fixable?
Although it's an older laptop at this point, I'd hate to have to replace something so expensive when it is functioning just fine except for the one key.

Repair Macbook Pro keyboard?

I have a 2012 Macbook Pro which still works perfectly fine, but for a single alpha key that works sort of intermittently. It'll go for a day or so mostly working. Then other days it's much worse and I have to plug in an external keyboard. Might this be something I could fix without replacing the who...

Thanks for the information and suggestions. The Kailh Pro Purple sounds like something I'd like to try. Although I'm beginning to suspect I might prefer a linear switch for lots of typing. Even the tactility of a macbook keyboard seems an annoyance when I am touch typing. I don't have a lot to compa...

The MX and clones family is a bit hard to open up while still mounted. It can be done with PCB-mount, but you won't be able to make a tactile switch clicky for example. The leaf that gives a clicky switch it's click is the part that's actually soldered in. You can change stems and springs, but not ...

Thanks for the responses. I'm have a look in the meetups section, but I doubt there's anything close, unfortunately. I'm probably going to try one of the more ubiquitous Cherry MX style switches to start with. So here's what I'm wondering: If I choose something in the Cherry MX family, or a clone li...

Help choosing switches, please

Hi, I'm preparing to make my first mechanical keyboard purchase (possibly a custom build), and not having the ability to try one out, I've been doing some research. However, due to so many varying opinions and descriptions, I'm having a really hard feeling comfortable with a decision. Here are my re...
