    Is there a PKL(Portable Keyboard Layout) for Colemak Mod-DH?

    ` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =
       Q W F P B J L U Y ; [ ] \
        A R S T G K N E I O '
         X C D V Z M H , . /

    ^My Mod-DH version

    I used to use the PKL for standard Colemak, but since I swapped to Mod-DH, I could not find a PKL for Mod-DH.
    I wish that I can find it since I really need it for my school's computer class!

    UPDATE: I found something that looks useful, but I'm not sure which one to use.

    UPDATE2: Nevermind this topic. I edited my current standard Colemak PKL to Mod-DH.

    I know, it's a mess right now. I'm working – but too slowly I'm afraid – on a solution that'll make PKL more modular and transparent. One day...

    Meanwhile, you have the right idea there. It isn't that hard to edit the layout.ini file. Just keep in mind that if you want full conversion you have to also move the VKEY code in the second or third column iirc, to reflect the right letter key. Otherwise, some shortcut keys will follow the old mappings. It may be easiest to swap the scan codes (first column) instead.

    AutoHotKey may easier to write a script for. It's what I use for my Windows needs.

    PKL is just a compiled AHK script :)

    It may be. But only if your needs are very basic. ;-)
