An Atreus blank has become part of my collection recently. I take the occasion of change and want to transition to a Workman muscle memory along with the new keyboard.
The problem is starting from from a blank keyboard, I want to optimize my layout according to the finger strain coefficient rather than mnemonics (although for an atreus, the strain map looks slightly different).
That + Workman keyboard layout involves remapping a whole lot of things. Now, I’ve found a setup that starts to work for me and heavily relies on the right hand home row + factor-2-strain-keys for most of the things combined with neatly ergonomic modifier chording on the left hand home row due to qukeys.
However, now there are a ton of left-over keys spread around which still have their original bindings. I have tried unmap on default key bindings but that doesn’t seem to work.
How can I get rid of the legacy key bindings and build my green field layout without the trouble?
Can I use keycodes instead of key symbols?
I’m starting to think: is a custom build really my best option here? Since configuring seems quite convoluted without a clear abstract command identifier instead of their key proxy (hypothetical InsertLineStart instead of actual I)
Here is the corresponding suggestion in the complaint section:
