I use Ergodox for a long time. Recently I made some optimizations as I realized that the thumb cluster works nicely if we hack with the key-caps a bit.
I can easily do now all the combinations of modifiers! Like Alt+Ctrl, Cmd+Ctrl, .... For now I used the parquet anti-scratch pads for home furniture, but I'll look for something better ;-) The keys just have to be a bit taller, 1.5 mm and 3 mm respectively.
Now my question goes towards the use of thumbs regarding the 2 big buttons. In my optimized layout I intend to use these buttons for shifts, space and enter. I'm a software developer and shifts are amongst the most frequently used keys.
Using such layout I realized that my thumb is quite slow to change position, that is to jump from shift to space. I just wonder if the speed will eventually build up or maybe thumbs are slower to move in general?
Do you know any other interesting forums about keyboard optimizations or ergodox?
