Torben, your organization is an elaborate example of what one can do. This kind of settings can be shared and worked upon among those of us who have to deal with similar activities. The application-specific viewpoint: These could feed some application-specific layout discussion. I started one on VIM...

Torben, thanks for your input on the subject, that make me want to make a few more steps on this ground. At first, I have no straightforward idea about how we should get to this "next level". 1 - I am not satisfied of my current symbol layout, simply because it is not the result of any serious inves...

Rqyteqto, I believe that anything valuable is such because of the details. Even great ideas like Westerman's must be followed by an incredible amount of work on countless details. That makes me sense the urge to be as smart and patient as possible while exploring this subject. I am so sure that we s...

The macro_name="." part does not comply with the observable syntax by a very faint detail that may be the issue: The dot character should be preceded by ONE space and followed by TWO spaces as follows: " .

Oh, my mistake! - only the layoutContext attribute should be removed. (I even dropped the first ">" character) . <TapArea xcenter="9.9" ycenter="0.1" isRectangular="true" width="1.9" height="1.9" macro_name="." layoutContext="NumLock ScrollLock"> <KeyEvent keyCode="Numpad." /> </TapArea> becomes: <T...
