    Hi everybody.
    I installed colemak in a notebook with windows 7.

    well, the right crtl doesn't work with it.
    it's not keyboard issue. I tested two. In both the right control, essential for shortcuts (crtl + c...) doesn't work.


    what can I do?

    What install did you use? The standard MSKLC one on this site?

    yes, the file from https://colemak.com/pub/windows/Colemak … hanged.zip

    only the left control works.

    Really not sure what to make of that. I use PKL_eD not the MSKLC installer.

    Hi. I installed the Pke. Its a great job, congratulations.
    But many things I don't understand.

    how can I make the virtual keyboard image  disappear of my screen? and choose a other colemak layout?

    If you look in the README on the repo there are a few hotkeys listed there. You can also see them in the Settings.ini file.

    You can set the image to not appear on startup, and switch it on/off with Ctrl+Shift+1.

    To switch between the layouts in the list, you can use the 'Co' menu in the system tray or Ctrl+Shift+2. But to set other layouts you need to edit the Settings.

    In there you can use a path to a layout folder (starting with the main PKL dir), or use my shorthand with KbdType etc if you want my layouts. Have a look in there.
