Post New user here, some graphic template issue.
I just started to use my Maximus, it's a bit confusing, but I try anyway.

I made some graphics templates, but it's quite laborious to add the key text
every time.

Is there a way to have the text applied as image overlay on the background?

Here's what I made so far (Had my kbd for maybe 3 hours)

Unfortunately the size of the template does not match the keyboard! Real image is
smaller and not lined up like in the template... I have given up on any real image except large
simple pictures. Too detailed won't show up.

Can anyone fix the template to reflect the keyboard (true layout and size)

All advice welcome.

No easy way to overlay key text onto image I'm afraid, sorry.

As for getting images like these to work. I gave up as I thought it just looked horrible on the keyboard.

I came to realize it needs simple images as it does not have to color definition.

An few oranges on a white background would seem fine.
A tapestry, not.

Ok I guess I need to make a template to overlay the keys all at once, doing it one at a time
takes too long :-/

It's a cool idea, anyway. If you do figure it out, be sure to post the process!

I may have misunderstood, but it looked like this may have been addressed in 0.61 but how?
"Version 0.61 (15 May 2008)
• Hybrid layers that display both image and letters on a same button"

Or was that referring to the subdivision of the key into "quadrants"?
