There are a lot of posts here I'm not reading, so if this has already been mentioned, my apologies, but that keyboard comes with software called Armoury Crate that I'm 99 percent positive has drop down menus for the keys. And if you somehow mess it up, you press and hold the FN key and Escape and it resets it to factory.Looks at Asus... wonders... why is this so bad.
his example: Say you want to swap the insert key and del key positions on keyboard. Easy to do, just swap the keycaps.
So you get 2 del keys and insert is gone forever?
- you select Insert key and choose reassign function
- There is no drop down list of functions, you press the key you want the new function to be.
- So now Insert = Del
- Next you want to rename Delete to be insert
- Select Del key and choose reassign key.
- Press Insert key but its already been assigned Del.
this way is dumb, It should have a drop down list of all possible keys so you don't get stuck in a position where you can't swap 2 keys. You lose functions
I don't have any way to confirm this has been fixed in 9 months.
So the 2 keyboard makers that sit on top of almost all Keyboard ranking charts have bad software. I pity people who don't look... at least razer are fixing Synapse.
I'm in the market for a new keyboard, but I'm not getting a mechanical keyboard. I keep weird hours and my wife would lose sleep if I were down here banging away on a mechanical keyboard.
