Why does the ortho kit use R4 for the bottom row instead of the flat R5 bottom row like the original drop? I doubt that other ortho users would like to constantly grind on the upturned bottom edge of an R4 bottom row.
EDIT: I now consider this critical failure. I have verified that MT3 R4 key hits the corner of the OLKB high-profile case. The only reason to use R4 would be to save on not having to make a flat row profile, but give what a bad idea R4 bottom row seems to be, it would be better to have a home-row instead (which is far from ideal).
Thanks for calling that out. I'll have to pass. R4 on /dev/tty is super sharp. I ended up flipping some 180 while I was testing on my Atreus. That works great if you're okay with using some extra symbol-esque mods for the purpose, but the bottom row in this ortho isn't going to look great.
@YanboWu Any hope that it could be corrected?
I have the same concern with the bottom row.. al least with the keys that are used with the thumbs... Unfortunately those borders make them unusable for me :(
@YanboWu Could you comment on the angled bottom row? It would legitimately almost be better to re-purpose the FN row from another kit over having the sharp edge of it dig into your thumbs.
