During an attempt to recreate programmer Dvorak layout on V3 with version 2.8 firmware I've run into some strange issues. I've remapped Fn to right shift to get the closest possible to a normal typing experience, and I am attempting to do this all in layer 1 to minimize frustration and mode-switching. I am working with the Dvorak dipswitch on because without it I don't think I would have nearly enough macros in one layer.
The keys that are 1, 2, and 3 in QWERTY/normal Dvorak seem to be unavailable for macros. The keyboard does not respond at all when I hit them while in programming mode, either for a "raw" macro or an Fn + key macro.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the number row, the 8 and 9 keys from normal Dvorak share a non-Fn macro. Whether I assign ), +, or anything else to them, and regardless of which one I assign it to, they both receive the same macro. Simultaneously, the 9 key seems to "send" its Fn macro to the 0 key. When I assign Fn + 4 to the 9 key (as it is on Programmer), it instead assigns Fn + 4 to the 0 key. I can instead assign an Fn macro to the 0 key directly and doing it that way works as one would expect.
Interestingly, these issues are quite different than they were on version 2.4 firmware. They have both changed type and key location. I do think these are relatively livable issues, but for now, I am going to factory reset the keyboard and use normal Dvorak while ignoring the keycaps I bought. It would be nice if these issues could be addressed in the next firmware patch, or if anyone has suggestions.
