Just want to add here that the layout provided by drop gives a fraction of the actual patterns available. If you use the QMK Configurator, you'll get access to much more. Not sure why as I haven't looked at the source yet, but if you're disappointed in the lack of patterns there are more!

Putting classic Apple keycaps on the CTRL
Back in 2003, Apple released the Apple Wireless Keyboard: (Not to be confused with later keyboards of the same name that look like laptop keyboards.) The keyboard still works with an ancient MacBook Pro, but it won't pair with anything from the 2010s. That's too bad, because I think it looks pretty nice. So I decided to see if I could bring its essence into the 2020s by transplanting the keycaps to my Drop CTRL keyboard. Here on the left is a regular MX style keycap, and to the right one from the AWK2003. Not so different. Until we turn them over: However, the AWK2003 keycap will fit on a Cherry MX style switch, especially a Kailh box switch: But the fit is too loose. However, we can fix that with some teflon tape. Three layers seems to work well: And there it is: the Drop CTRL keyboard with 2003 Apple Wireless Keyboard keycaps: The keycap profile is a bit different, especially on the bottom row, as you...

Keycaps for Corsair K65 from 2015
Hi everyone, I am having a lot of trouble trying to find keycap sets for my keyboard or any Corsair sets in general. I get that the issue is the bottom row for the most part but not sure what options I have. Are most caps for MX switches fine for the rest of the keys just not the bottom row? I am pretty sure this is my size (as found from http://blog.maxkeyboard.com/faqs/keycap-compatibility-and-size-chart/) but how do I find cool keycaps for it? Any advice would be great.

Switches double-pressing
I just got some Cherry MX Silent Red switches. Some keys occasionally double press - I tap t and the keyboard produces tt. I swapped out 3 of the switches with my 3 spares, and they work fine now. But I've still got 2 or 3 more letters with issues. Are these switches repairable, or do I need to order some more?
