Post Re: What...
1. I am trying to make group of layers for every application I use.
Firs of all standard Windows keyboard shortcuts.
But there is no WIN key in modifiers list. Could you please add it?
I am also waiting for ability to launch different applications with modifier. (the issue I've described before). Anna suggested to "use Modes plugin for now". Unfortunately I didn't figure out how it works.

2. I have also spotted strange OM behavior when you open command line interface (cmd.exe). The keyboard is not responding for some time (about a minute). It appears to be the case only during first time you launch cmd.exe.

3. When I press the button shown in screen-shot below it produce comma even though the key shows dot. How can I fix it?

4. And of course it's annoying when keyboard hangs up and I need to power cycle it to restore functionality. The problem still persist through new versions. But I guess it is firmware problem...

5. (Off Topic) One more thing on mechanical side. I've noticed that inside surface of plastic cover on some keys (left Ctrl, Space bar, Enter...) touches the key itself when pressed in the same top-left corner. And the plastic cover started to wear out in this spot. It is nothing to worry about for now but it will become noticeable in some time. May be I press these keys too hard? :D Will I be able to order several plastic covers in future?

Yes, perhaps even as early as next version.

Setting Toggle condition described here.

1. Add "Switch by action" Condition on some Layer;
2. Select "Toggle condition" Action on some Button;
3. In Action properties select Layer from step 1.

As a result pressing the Button will change activity of the Layer. Yes, this is not quite what pressing the button with the modifier. But very close, and may be even easier.

We have a few descriptions of such problems, but I really never got to reproduce it. Try solve this problem "in blind" in the next release.

You can set an image to correspond buttons themselves. Future versions will try to do it automatically.

How exactly does this occur? Hits cease to operate? In all, or parts of buttons? Stops at this point whether the updated pictures?

About this ask our engineers on Monday. ^__^

I still would like a one click backup and restore of ALL Configurator settings and layers. Would be good for experimenting with new layers.

I did have a go at exporting a layout to replace the default layer on the sd card. I just tried to export my current main layer which has a few url linked keys which I knew wouldn't work, as a test. unfortunately the results were a complete mess! Some of keys didn't export, some were off center, some just went fuzzy. I managed to restored my back up of the sd card and vowed never to try again. Is there a secret method to doing this right?

There is no secrets. Plug-ins are not exported. Everything else should be processed correctly. Send us an archive with such wrong layout and we try to look into this issue.

Import/export commands is not enough to solve this problem?

Import/export is only good for individual layers! I'm thinking of a backup for the whole program should I have to re-install windows.

I could re-install configurator and re-instate my setting as they were before. Also if I were to have a go at testing a new feature, I could re-instate my settings if all were to go wrong!
