This is a more general question. Does anybody use alternatives to the standard Shift, Enter, Backspace, ESC positions? I think the idea behind home-row-mods is great, but it does not seem to work that well for many. Combo-mods may be an alternative. But either with standard home-row-mods or combo-mods I do not want to “waste” the home row for modifiers, when Shift and Enter or Backspace are used even more often. Such an approach does not seem to be wide-spread, but seems most beneficial to me.
Any thoughts or experience with this? I could get 2 key combos working, but not 3. My current idea is to assign the following to combo-mods:
I think I will try this one out, but before diving into that adventure I surely would like to hear if someone already took a more or less similar road and what the experience was or if you heard from someone else experience.
P.S.: For the SCGA-combos I still can look for alternatives like bottom-row-mods, combo mods on the bottom or top row or just use the default 4 keys on the left side of the keyboard and live with the somewhat cumbersome shortcuts for combos, but which I think are not that important compared to Enter, BS, ESC and Ctrl.
Arrgh, the main idea/ question remains, but a simple implementation like
ifShortcut 82 final holdKey leftShift
ifShortcut 81 final holdKey backspace
ifShortcut 17 final holdKey delete
will not work, because it will conflict with rolls.
