====== Modified NASA keybindings ====== <box 50% red> **Mappings still in progress** </box> <box 100% green > *NOTE*: These are the chords I use. The code of the spiffchorder can be easily modified allowing you to set the chords any way you like. This just happens to be what I am use to. -Greg </box> === A few general notes === As a general rule the spiffchorder is using the standard key-bindings were possible. This is a benefit as most of you are coming to chording already familiar with the QWERTY keyboard. As such prefixing a chord with <key>Shift</key> does what you would expect, <key>Shift - ] </key> generates <key> } </key>, <key>Shift - 3</key> generates <key>#</key> and so on. There are lots of chord possibilities, if you look at the {{spiffchorder:nasa_us.h|nasa_us.h}}((for the latest nasa_us.h please download the current source, the version here may be out of date)) file you notice many lines begining with ''KEY__,'' these are as yet unassigned chords. You can add key bindings to these unused chords or remap the entire set if you choose.((the current list of preset key bindings is in the file {{spiffchorder:keycodes.h|keycodes.h}}. These are not all the possible bindings, only the ones that have already been given assignments for details on how to add more refer to [[chord creation]].)) By default in this chordset there are sometimes several chords that will generate the same key. For example, there are at least 2 ways to get a Question Mark <key>?</key>, you don't need to learn both, just the one that works for you.(( Near Thumb followed by q or Shift + slash)) There are a number of ways to think about the chords, usually one will make the most sense to you. Our primary method of describing and charting the chords is explained in the first of 7 lessons: [[spiffchorder:modified_nasa:lesson_01|Lesson 1 - Reading the Charts and Chording Basics]]. Working through the lessons will get you familiar with the chords and concepts you will need to become proficent on the spiffchorder. Even if you plan on building you own chordset, it might be worth looking over the lessons. In addition to the lessons the compleate bound chords for this chordset is also available as 4 charts: * [[spiffchorder:modified_nasa:alphanumeric_keys|The Alphabet and the Numbers Chart ]] * [[spiffchorder:modified_nasa:chart punctuation| Punctuation and Modifiers Chart]] * [[spiffchorder:modified_nasa:chart_motion_keys| Cursor Motion Chart]] * [[spiffchorder:modified_nasa:function_keys| F1 - F12 ]]
