As you may have notice, normal keys have a
k_prefix, there is no much about them other than the fact that you have independent keys for lower and upper case letters, and other symbols that would require to shift in a normal keyboard, here you can have them as a key on their own, no shifting needed.
If you want to leave a key unused, make it a
k_empty, a special key that does nothing.
Modifiers like Control, Shift, Alt, Super have a
m_prefix and act like modifiers in a normal keyboard: you hold it and then press some other key to modify it.
Venabili lets you define keys that are already modified, for instance this key:
Ctrl + cin a single key press.
We can go further still and define keys that will act as a modifier when held, but be a normal key when pressed and release quickly.
Take for instance the key:
escapewhen tapped (pressed and released quickly) but will behave as
Ctrlwhen you hold it and press some other key at the same time. This one is particularly useful.
There are 5 different mouse buttons prefixed by
m_click_. The common ones being:
- 1 = left click
- 2 = right click
- 3 = middle click
In order to move the pointer use the following keys:
- MU(speed): Up
- MD(speed): Down
- MR(speed): Right
- ML(speed): Left
- MWU(speed): Wheel up
- MWD(speed): Wheel down
speedis number between 0 and 15 to describe how fast the pointer should move.
Layer Lockkey (
c_layer_lock) allows you to lock in the current layer and release the lock when pressed again.
If you want to be able to enter Flash mode without having to unplug the keyboard, make sure to include the
c_flash_modekey in one of your layers. When pressed the keyboard will enter Flash mode and be ready to receive a firmware update.
