I've been looking more and more into Colemak's (Colemak-CAW) hand distribution/alteration and based on stevep99's layout analyser, I see that the right hand works more—which, to be honest, I also feel: My right hand fingers seem to all over the place compared to the left hand fingers where a little pluck here and there gets the job done:
I've been trying to think of ways to get those numbers closer to each other as much as I can, something like 0.49:0.50, with very little luck. “The best” (personal, I guess) change I've come up so far is switching the L and P keys. It brings the numbers closer—0.47:0.52—but it's still not what I'm aiming for:
However, the good thing (in my opinion), it doesn't mess around with other values. I mean, The frequency of finger 3 (left hand index finger) only went up by 0.3, thus finger 6 (right hand index finger) received the same amount reduction, meanwhile slightly, by 0.4 increasing the finger bigram frequency—which could actually be an issue(?).
Are there any way to bring the left and right hand finger frequency ratio closer to each other? I've been trying to think of this for a few days now and I've arrived at a wall, because the way I'm looking at it, it cannot be done without also moving some keys on the home row as well as the bottom row—which I'm strongly against, I don't won't to move the keys on the home row and the angle-mod keys (X C D V Z).
Are there any way to achieve what I want, keeping in mind the rules above (not moving the home row and angle-mod keys)? Or is it the best that the current layout has to offer?
I'm open to anything you guys have got to say.
