What is the intended fingers to use on the bottom row of the atreus?
The first three are for thumbs, the next one is unallocated (I find it
uncomfortable to curl the finger this much), the last one is for the edge
of the palm.
Interesting. It never occurred to me that the palm was an option.
Here (use the default layout as a reference), I use thumbs for
Ctrl, Backspace, Shift, Super, Alt, Space, Fn.
I have a tap action on Alt that sends a Return. If that's my intention I tap
the button with my right finger.
(I also have an on-hold action on Esc, that acts as an extra Ctrl. Sometimes
handy for combinations I don't feel comfortable with using the "normal"
The only actions that still feel weird are M-< and M-> in Emacs.
I am pondering a workaround, but if you have suggestions I'd like to hear
