What Is The Purpose Of Each Layer?

The Typing Layer is what you'll use most of the time. It is the normal typing mode.

The Function Layer allows you access keys that are less often used but still important, such as the F-row, Print Screen, and Home/End.

The Control Layer allows you to control various aspects of your keyboard, such as the RGB Underlight.

What Do The Colors Mean?

The Yellow keys are what you need to hold down to enter a particular layer. Holding down none of them leaves you in the Typing Layer. Holding down Fn moves you to the Function Layer. Holding down Fn+S will enter the Control Layer.

The Blue keys highlight the keys available to you in a particular layer.

RESET is used when flashing a new firmware onto your keyboard. If you press that key your keyboard will stop working until you flash a firmware or unplug and then plug it back in. It is Red to remind you to be cautious about pressing it.

What The Heck? My Keyboard doesn't have all those keys!

The Clueboard supports a lot of layout options, some of which conflict with each other. In order to show you all the possible key locations I had to get creative. You should ignore keys you don't have a switch soldered to.

Split Backspace

Most people use a single 2U key in this location. If you use a single 2U key it corresponds to the right BS key.

ANSI vs ISO Enter

If you have an ANSI layout you will have a single 2.25U key in the Enter location, and the ~# key will not be available.

If you have an ISO layout you will have a tall enter and the |\ will not available to you.

Split Left Shift

If you have a single 2.25U key for left shift you will not have the ISO |\ available to you.

Split Right Shift

If you have a single 2.25U key for right shift you will not have the JIS/JP |\ available to you.

Bottom Row

Layouts using a 6U, 6.25U, or 6.5U spacebar will not have the Muhenken or Henken keys available. Only layouts using the 2U spacebars will have access to the left spacebar.
