Dvorak Improved Keyboard Layout

1.1
08 August 2007

Fixes a keystroke issue.

Overview

Dvorak Improved Keyboard Layout ... This keyboard layout is just like Apple's Dvorak - Qwerty ?, except that when you hold down Shift and Command, the proper layout is displayed.

Originally when you held down these keys, it would display the unshifted Qwerty display, regardless of the status of shift (Command = Shift + Command).

Because of this problem, it was impossible to perform keystrokes such as Command + : and Command + ?. This new keyboard layout fixes the problem.

Although I'm sure the fact that few people will need this system mod because, well, few people know the dvorak layout, those of us who are learning to use Dvorak after years of QWERTY will find this infinitely useful. The biggest hurdle for me learning Dvorak really has been that my fingers automatically jump to the "real" shortcut letters as I type. This program has been a real help in that regards, and since it's just a small system modification, there's pretty much no chance of bugs (at least from 10.4.8, when I started using it).

the download appears to be missing and MacUpdate will not install it. It comes up with an error, but no explanation that I can understand.

Thank you so much! The bug with Apple's layout was the main thing stopping me from really using Dvorak. I was afraid I had to give up hope on using Dvorak regularly, but now I can switch tabs in Safari without changing layouts. This is just what I needed. Sadly, it isn't perfect, because once in a while, Command-Shift-] in Safari will increase the text size (like Command-Shift-+) instead of changing the tab. But this doesn't happen every time, and usually doesn't happen when I open the Window menu first. Otherwise, this layout has worked fine for me. By the way, two more little things for the developer: when I open the layouts in Ukulele, it tells me there are some control key combinations missing and offers to add them. Also, there is a typo in the readme: when saying the two possible paths you can install it to, you say "blah OR/ blah" instead of "blah or blah". Just tiny things you might want to look into.
