Somebody did something right. I've just discovered that the Colmak layout is now an option on the iPad (iOS 5.1). This is a godsend. I spent a year becoming completely fluent as a touch typist on my laptop using the Colmak layout. In the process I lost the ability to type on QWERTY layouts. I have a bluetooth keyboard for the iPad, but it's always been a struggle with the 'wrong' format.
The iPad is now perfect!
I'm now a long time user of the Colmak layout (2.5 years). Won't go back to QWERTY.
However, on one machine I use regularly, I've installed the PKL.exe utility to enable Colmak to be turned on and off as needed for other users, but when turned on the Shift key when held down works for the first character typed (giving uppercase) but then loses its setting for 2nd and subsequent keys. This means that each CAPS character requires that the Shift key is released and repressed.
Anybody have a resolution for this issue?
