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...

Can we look into the F13-F24 binding issue on MDLoader and Drop keyboards?
The online configurator allows for the binding of F13-F24 keys, however they do not work. There is a fix listed online on Github: https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/pull/4601 Seems like the online configurator needs this fix. This has been reported by user Sargasm and Koldy (myself) on Drop's site here. Also, multiple users across issues on Github, and Reddit posts. This is a huge hindrance that I would love to get resolved, and it seems multiple users would like as well. https://www.reddit.com/r/olkb/comments/lbm78f/f1324_keys_dont_seem_to_be_working/ https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/kvlqnt/how_do_you_get_f13_and_beyond_to_work_on_the_drop/ https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader/issues/12 https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader/issues/48 Pinging @AlexPk and @YanboWu, as I was advised you guys were community and mech keys leaders out here.
