Obviously these are just scratching the surface. There are other layouts like ISO to consider, along with multiple layouts of some sizes such as 65% which can also include the numerous WhiteFox layouts, the Varmilo layout with the 4 key cluster on the top right, etc. 40% keyboards are the new 60%, with many more layouts showing up like the Golbat and the Mini Van. 60% layouts are numerous as well, including HHKB styles, the Infinity Hacker layout, and the nearly infinite layouts on community made keyboards.

How to Configure Stack Overflow The Key Macropad?
Hey everybody! Thank you for purchasing your Stack Overflow The Key Macropad. We hope you’re enjoying it so far. If you’ve landed here, you probably want to take full advantage of the keyboard’s custom configuration so you’ve come to the right place. What Does The Key Come With? Out of the box, The Key comes built in with three keys that act as the “ctrl”, “c”, and “v” keys. It also includes a USB-C to USB-A cable to connect to your computer. Users that only have USB-C ports would need to provide their own USB-A to USB-C adapter. How do I configure The Key? Creating a New Custom Configuration The Key can be reconfigured and remapped so that each key press results in a different character, or set of characters. Users commonly find it helpful to remap these to media keys (Play, Stop, Next Track), utility keys (volume up/down) or application shortcuts (launch Chrome). To get under the hood and start reprogramming your The Key: 1. Go to Keyboard Firmware Builder 2...

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...

Operator Mono?
Sorry I can't help it but I'm addicted to this font. What is the chance of getting a keycap set with it? Some of the fonts I'm not too hot on TBH, but operator mono is awesome sauce.

1u function, alt and control keycaps on skylight series?
I just got the drop skylight series keycaps set for my tofu 65. at the time i did not realize it was not compatible. So far I really liked the set. It’s everything I need in a set and more however there is no 1u function, alt or control keycaps. I am just wondering if there are any plans for an expansion of some kind. Thank for your help.

More GMK sets that a made for TKL, 65% like the GMK Red samurai
I've recetnly purchased the 65% set for the red samurai, and I would really love to order more. However, sets like GMK blue samurai, GMK laser, GMK gaijin, etc. don't have this option. The price for 65% is so good for what I've gotten and I would love to see more of this being implemented for other GMK sets. I would buy way more sets.
