Just got this today, but it seems like fn + key combinations are not programmable? I'm trying to map my arrows keys to fn + ijkl or in my case capslock + ijkl, but am not able to do so. Anyone have success with fn + key programming? Any help would be appreciated, thanks! I'll give the new firmware a try later to see if that resolves this programming issue...

***edit: ijkl and hjkl are not usable because existing bindings cannot be overwritten. full email copied below:
"Thank you for contacting us. The customisation that you are trying to do is not yet possible unfortunately. The reason is that you can transfer FN layer functions only to keys without any FN layer function, in this case, you can easily transfer left, down and right arrows to j,k,l but Up arrow won’t be able to be moved to the “i” key because this key has the FN layer function ‘ins’ already programmed. When you move the arrows to other keys, you duplicate them, they will always remain usable via WASD keys when you press the FN key. However if you still want to move the arrows to j,k,l and maybe ‘O’ for example, please follow the below step by step explanation: First, choose between the layers 1,2,3 by pressing FN + R SHIFT, the left LED under the space bar will light up to indicate which layer you are using (the default layer has no LED on) Second step: Enter the programming mode by pressing FN + R Ctrl. Then to duplicate the right arrow onto the “l” key, press FN + L, then press FN + D, then press PN to save the change. Then to duplicate the bottom arrow onto the “k” key press FN + K, then press FN + S, then press PN to save the change. Then to duplicate the left arrow onto the “j” key, press FN + J, then press FN + A, then press PN to save the change. Then to duplicate the up arrow onto the “o” key, press FN + O, then press FN + W, then press PN to save the change. Exit the programming mode by pressing FN + R Ctrl. Let us know if you have any questions."

It looks as though this isn't possible currently :( I can't remap any of the pre-programmed fn keys in any layer

I'm not sure what my current keyboard firmware is, but even with the v1.03 firmware they are not programmable?
Oh man... this might be a deal breaker for me especially considering the manual and the description on the ikbc website seem to indicated that fn + key programming is supposed to be possible.
Thanks for the info though!

I agree 100% I feel like this is a pretty significant reduction in functionality compared to what we expected / was described. My hope is that this is something fixable in firmware if it gets enough attention. I contacted ikbc through their website (contact form at the bottom of the page where you download the firmware update) and I'd urge you to do the same ... the more people raising this issue, the more likely we'll get a fix.

Already did. :) Honestly, I might just try to get this refunded and specifically cite the misleading description and lack of fn + key programming as the reason. My efficiency is significantly reduced, so I might just go back to my old keyboard rather than try to work with a setup that isn't optimal.
