I was actually wondering how Kinesis would handle the right-hand shortcuts that replace Ctrl XCV... seems like they won't work on Kinesis layout, and you need them if you use the mouse on the left hand (which, by the way, I also thought was a dumb idea until I tried it.)
There are many alternative ways to execute copypasta.
1. Put them on the mouse. Highly recommended.
2. Autohotkey and similar software to remap shortcuts.
3. Kinesis macros. Will be retained on keyboard between computers without need for OS software. There are a few redundant and useless keys that can be reused for this purpose.
4. If you use Dvorak-like layouts with consonants on right hand, then those combos can be executed by the right hand.
Anyway your design is interesting, I'll ponder it more later. First thing I noticed was that you have 1 0 3 on home rather than 1 0 2 .... why is that? 2 is more common than 3 and it looks like you've put 2 on ring, not even middle? Just find that a bit puzzling :-)
That's what the optimizer came up with. Maybe my imperfect corpus has way more 3 than 2. Should be okay to switch them if you like. But that's pretty close to optimal. I restricted dot and slash to be at the same spot as the letter layer. 10 of course at the home keys. 598 and dash pretty much stay in those spots. Either 67 in the far top corner.
Can't you make AltGr layouts work with Kinesis? Is this a physical button issue or software/controller issue?
Kinesis Advantage2 doesn't have the AltGr key. The manual and website don't mention it at all. I've never used or seen AltGr before, so I don't know what one needs to add it.
Can I add your layout above to my site? Am building a gallery with KLE layouts, since the KLE site only has a few presets and there's lots of interesting ideas on the web.
Sure. Actually the layout was quite different before I switched to BEAKL 34. Escape was brought all the way down to outside bottom left pinky. Caps Lock was Control. etc.GeekHack has lots of Interesting Layouts
