I've been using a combo for "you" for a few months now, as it's the most prominently cumbersome of the frequent words I type (I suppose because the roll is changing changing direction, and it's on outer fingers on the same hand).
Unfortunately the name "combo" for the feature is overloaded, so I should specify what I mean: when pressing both y and u at the same time, the keyboard emits "you". This is a firmware functionality on many programmable keyboards, QMK recently got an improvement merged for it, which I use in conjunction with some handy helper code from Germ but that isn't required.
I've experimented with emitting a trailing space in that combo, as well as having variants for "you're" and "your," but at the end, the most useful for me was the simplest approach, just the one combo and no trailing space. It composes well with my one-shot shift, which capitalizes the next letter when tapped, so I can tap shift then y-u and get "You"
Anyone else using or experimenting with combos in conjunction with Colemak? What have you found?
