    For all my ISO and spit enter ANSI peeps out there have you ever devised a good solution for 4 keys of separation b/w hands? On my Pingmaster I keep missing the enter key even on wide-mod because its so tiny and looking for viable solutions.

    I answered this on Reddit. As usual, the answer is in the BigBag.  ¯\(º_o)/¯

    I'm experimenting with widest possible split on ANSI keyboard where the Enter key becomes O and Right-Shift becomes Period. For Colemaks consistency sake I also mapped Z to Left-Shift. This double wide setup has the benefit of comfortable thumb keys. Let's see how this goes.

    Jhoravi, looks like you're describing a DoubleFat mod, as described here (in the "More Angle mods" spoiler)?

    No, what I'm thinking is one step wider to the point where the Enter-key becomes letter O.  It gives my right hand better access to thumb keys. So far it doesn't feel too odd here on my laptop. But maybe because my Colemak speed is still very slow (1 week old).

    Wow, sounds like at least one bridge too far to me, the pinky should have a little left to do I think. But hey, let us know if it's in fact brilliant!
