Poker 2 Mechanical keyboard Mac key to modify

Use Mac you can not think there are many benefits of this,Of course, it is difficult to match the appropriate keys keyboard is one of the drawbacks you can think of。

After a long tangle,I was into the Poker 2 ,84, commonly known as a key we are 60% Keyboard,Or keypad。This keyboard is like your home keyboard,From the ribbon button to the right to have all cut,Then the outer border of the narrow way。

That's Poker 2 The complete key bitmap

As you can see,Unfortunately this is for Windows with Keyboard。But that's okay,Mac modifier key change comes naturally,A little change,Basically cmd option and still be able to come back - but,We have to "get back" arrow keys the job。

Arrow keys is the only reason many students refuse to buy this keyboard,This thing is usually substantially less than the kind of belongs,But very often when they need to catch the kind of urgency,There are two solutions:

Native shortcut method

Yes,In fact, you may not know,OS X Emacs editor supports the natural direction shortcuts!

使用 control + pnbf corresponds to the vertical and horizontal,Also comes with control + ae shortcut to move the line end of the line ......

For more details, please check it yourself key combination keys to Emacs。The same time,Suggest you put caps lock button with the left control button to swap position,Avoid left little finger was tenosynovitis ~ ✌️

Keyboard switch comes modify Dafa

Ok,We all know that Poker 2 A big selling point is the hardware can be programmed keys - although I never use Cock。

All right,We first introduce Poker 2 Four small switch - it is located in the back of the keyboard。

  • switch 1:Caps and left swap Win
  • switch 2:Right Ctrl and `~ Conversion
  • switch 3:Left Win and Fn conversion
  • switch 4:Keyboard write protection,Programming keys

Here,our target is:No Cavities!- the "back" arrow keys。We can see Poker 2 In fact, with the arrow keys - in combination with the Fn function it comes with the realization。but,Fn button at the bottom right,The arrow keys on the location wasd,To two hands to operate,Now we try to mess it can be operated with one hand。

This approach comes from Here , This key position not only to achieve a one-hand arrow keys,Also can easily press the tilde,The Mac keys are also looking back - the only drawback,I am afraid that is not the caps lock button - OK,This is not acceptable。

Use tools to further optimize key bindings

Now,The famous Karabiner Support for the latest 10.12,The new version is called Karabiner-Elements of course,Now it features very simple,But we can use it,To make 10.12 Compatible better for poker - after all,10.12 after upgrade,alt poker mac not recognize the right of the,No matter how you set,All option。I was using to map pn + alt cmd,So I spent half a year ......?‍♂️

We put on your keyboard1 and switch 3turn on,Let Fn button turns left Win ,Then put on the caps lock Fn change,Thus it would be caps lock Fn ,So one hand can operate the arrow keys friends - pretty handy。

Download the Karabiner,Installation need to enter your password,Because it is a system-level,After installation you will have two applications,Karabiner-Elements and are Karabiner-EventViewer ,The former is the main application,The latter is used to detect the key information is determined to help you with。

Let the button mapping modifications take effect only on the poker

Then the key is to change the,Karabiner-Elements able to distinguish between the left and right keys modified,Unlike the general system as,So you can do a lot of fine changes,You can set this according to my,As a result,,On your left, and the system comes with three keys consistent (keyboard shown at the end of the text reference),alt right side can be changed back to the cmd,The most basic right side will not be used ctrl,Then becomes caps lock key,If you use the system comes with Chinese input method,Then you should be very happy the。

It should not be difficult to understand,You follow my shots to add to:

Once configured you can open the keyboard button to test the Karabiner-EventViewer:

Coming into effect Karabiner-Elements using the test button mapping

At last,Open the "Misc" tab,Underneath find "copy the current configuration to the system default configuration",Click and enter the password authorization,So before you log in button mapping is in effect a。
