I bought the Varmilo Dragon Phoenix VA104M Mechanical Keyboard and initially it worked great. I'm on a Mac, so I got some mac modifier keys at maxkeyboard.com. The only problem with them is that the LED backlights shine brighter through these than the other keys. I may try to attenuate the keys somehow. Any suggestions?
Unfortunately I've run into a bigger problem: I used the traditional method of remapping the modifier keys to the mac layout (through the Keyboard panel in the system preferences) and all was fine for about 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden certain keys seemed to remap themselves. I reset the Keyboard mapping in the system preferences and this is what I'm left with (using Windows ID's):
Left Control is mapped to Caps Lock
Right Control is fine
Caps Lock is mapped to both Control keys
Both ALT keys are mapped to nothing, unresponsive
Both "Window" keys are mapped to the ALT keys
I installed Karabiner - Elements and was able to remap the Caps Lock and Control keys to work properly, but both ALT keys are still unresponsive. So now I basically don't have any Option keys.
I found several "fixes" online to reset the keyboard, but nothing has worked. Why was it initially working fine and then suddenly changed? HELP!
