Suggestion: Default Colourway
First of I find this maker push a great idea to further incent people to fully use all the possibilities WASD does provide to their customers. I'm looking forward to contribute in the future.
Now, looking at the data that needs to be submitted I noticed something. When choosing to not fix the colourway but letting the customers decide what key colours they want, the selection will default to black.
Is the custom layout planned to be overlayed over the colourway selection?
Because if it is I see a problem with darker or even black prints.
If it is indeed overlayed I would suggest an option given to the Maker.
For instance not only Black but also White as default selection.
That way Maker created prints that are dark will stay visible.
There might be prints that require a certain colourway and you thought of that. That's great.
A dark print could work on most coloured keycaps... except of black.
Sorry, the options weren't that well explained. When choosing your colorway option, you have two options:
Option 1 - Fixed Colorway
The designer to pick the colorway. Customer cannot make any changes. This is useful for designs that incorporate a specific keycap colorway.
Option 2 - No specific colorway
When the designer does not specify a colorway, the default key color will be black, but the customer can also change the key colors to any combination they would like. The layout will behave the same way as our existing layouts in our designer. Customer can also choose the text color priority or change the text color entirely.
We are in the process of making a new designer as well. This is just a work around for the time being. The end goal is to load each design with a preset colorway, but customers can always opt to change the colors.
Ah, I see what what you mean. Our "trick" around that at the moment is that we make all the text a gray color, so it shows up on all the keys. We would do this ourselves for all the submitted designs when posting the design online.
We have a new designer in development right now that will allow the objects to change colors depending on the keycap color behind it so the text will always be the optimal color.
