An important part of what makes the ErgoDox EZ ergonomic is that you can completely customize it. Make it the perfect keyboard for you.
- Don't like where the Shift key is? Move it, or make several new ones! This goes for any other key - letters, numbers, modifiers (Alt, Ctrl, Command). Move things around!
- Want a modifier key right in your home row? Easy -- use dual-function keys, so when you tap your key you get a letter (A for example) and when you hold it down, it works as Ctrl, Alt, Shift, etc.
- Want a single key that sends Ctrl+S, or any other key combo? No problem.
- Create multiple layers, so you can have application-specific keyboard layers. Start an image editor or any other application, flip to its layer, and all of your favorite shortcuts are a single keystroke away.
You can do all of this (and more, actually) without writing a single line of code, and without installing any software on your computer. Here's how:
Note: Currently, the configurator only fully supports the US English layout. Customers with other localize layouts (Danish, etc.) are able to use it, but will have to experiment to find the keycodes that work for their particular software locale and operating system.
