**Hacks / Re: Balanced Keyboard Layout**

« **on:**March 22, 2017, 04:14:31 AM »

Updated KLA on my site with new Matrix keymap, which is Ergolinear with number row and two extra thumb keys. Therefore new BEAKL EZ Matrix layout. see attached. (Also fixed the unshifted letter to stay at the bottom left corner of the keycap.)

On actual keyboard, you can fill the numbers on the number row. I omitted them on KLA since I don't know how that would affect the scores. New BEAKL EZ Matrix scores similarly to BEAKL 5 Ergolinear, except 5 is somewhat better at code.

Also not shown is the ten-key layer that overlays the left hand. The math symbols are in the same place as normal or alt-gr layers, and the numbers are optimized as discussed earlier in this thread. Like so:

Home fingers are 5102. Tab is hit with thumb on matrix layout. There is room for Enter at the pinky if you decide to include it.
