Today I updated my qmk_firmware repo [now deleted] to match what Jane has on their side. I tried a PR, but that got really mucky with a changed file and a changed submodule, so I backed out, saved patches of my commits, and completely remade my fork. It turns out the changed file also hit my new fork (wtf?), but the patches applied just fine.

Last night I read about dictionaries, and how Learn Plover! teaches the shift/ctrl/alt/super keys. It’s interesting, and I’m ready to start tinkering with my own dictionary for nav & control. I also tried using the Georgi’s pre-baked Symbol layer, but had some trouble with the alt-tab behavior I expect [see previous post].
It’s worth re-flashing with the updated qmk from germ/qmk_firmware, and if that doesn’t work I can still try my own symbol map and if THAT doesn’t work perhaps I can fall back to using a steno dictionary entries to define “alt-tab once”, “alt-tab twice” etc.
