Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

I *think* I remember some editor that showed an accent like ` or ' after typing such a dead key, although it moved the cursor afterwards (of course after the next letter typed it would do the right thing). It could have been even Notepad or Wordpad, I rarely use Windows nowadays.

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Heh, well I rather meant something like this: when you type a dead key, the editor (using low-level keyboard scanning or something similar) shows the accent on current cursor position, maybe flashing it, or in a different color, and then the cursor is kept as is, not moved; so the user can then type...

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Type writers did have dead keys. In Spanish, for example, the acute accent key was a key that produced the accent but did not move the carriage, then, after it any key typed was let to be printed under the accent. That was a dead key by definition. Heh, editors *could* do that too ... (I mean, it w...

Re: Topre Realforce R2 6-key rollover issue?

@Findecanor, I'm pretty sure when I plug in a keyboard with QMK firmware,it always appears as multiple devices (in Linux, 'dmesg' shows multiple input event sources IIRC), even if I don't enable fancy stuff in QMK; AFAIK, the 6-nkro issue pointed out by @hansichen is still relevant and QMK still use...

Also most kbdfans.cn 60% keyboard PCBs for example are completely programmable and usually improved (*) clones of GH60 AFAIK.

(*) Improved not necessarily as in "better materials" or soldering, but supporting more stuff (RGB lights, or custom layouts)

They are quite loose and indeed the keycaps look a bit rotated.
