I agree with this statement. I can do without numpad but I need my nav cluster. I can't stand having to press function keys in order to use pgdwn, home, del, etc. Part of the reason I really want some TKL alps PCB's. I don't like the lock lights on the V80 and a kingsaver is out of my budget.XMIT wrote: ↑I'm still coming to decisions regarding key caps and switches. For example, the other day I put SA Retro on one of my MX Clear boards and now I like it. I couldn't stand it on the Novatouch. So odd.
But I have come to one important decision: TKL is the form factor for me. I like for the arrow keys and nav cluster to always be in the same place and I like function keys. I can maybe tolerate a slightly different bottom row. Maybe.
The other layout I like is the F122 layout actually and its the keyboard I use the most. I'm typing on it right now in fact. I love the room it gives me. Its having a whole layout kingdom with the northern icy enclave of 24 F keys, alpha heartlands, lair of the 10 F keys to the western territories, the city of navigation to the west border, and the soon to be gone digit island to the far west sea. All in front of me every time I type.
