    Concerning the 104-key Illustrator template, I assume I would have to modify it by deleting the unneeded keys since I would like an 87-key(?) Should I keep the size of the artboard the same, or will that mess up the process on your side?

    Also, do you only place images on the keys? If I provide the whole design, including cut up images for the keys, would it be possible to have an entire design on the keyboard itself?

    Furthermore, I was wondering something about the keys themselves. If I want to change keys - let's say I want to swap the F with the M for example - could that be done as well? Where the keys are swapped but retain the original function F still functions as F, and M still functions as M etc. etc. etc.

    For an 87-key layout, you would use the 104-key template and simply ignore the number pad area. 

     

    The maximum printable area for the keys is the top surfaces only. If you wanted printing on the case as well, we can do so. More info and ordering found here: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/printed-keycap-singles/custom-case-print.html

     

    We can print the keys as anything you like, but the functionality would be dictated by your system's keyboard language settings. You would need to use a key remapping software to make specialized changes.

    Thanks Paige. Link is much appreciated. As for the software, I will see which I find more suited for me.

    what version of inkscape do you use? i started editing with an old version of inkscape (90dpi), then i updated to latest version (96dpi) graphics is all messed up (font sizes and position) so i think i have to redo all my layout, but the main question is: will it show up correctly in your machines????

    We are using the latest version of Inkscape, so we will need any submitted layouts to be created in the latest version if they are to show up correctly.

    Hi, the latest inkscape download won't run on OSX (latest version), i'm able to view and edit the files in sketch, is this suitable?

    Inkscape recommends Mac users run the previous stable version for now. (https://inkscape.org/en/download/mac-os/)

    We have had issues with templates made or edited in Sketch in the past, so Inkscape is preferable even if it is the older version.
