Method to input a letter
  • Method1
    • First letters : 1 strike the key
    • Second letters : double-click the key
    • To switch between upper and lower case : 1 strike [alt] key
  • Method2
    • First letters : 1 strike the key
    • Second letters : 2 strike the key
    • In case of 'rr','oo',etc : 1 strike [alt] key in between
    • To switch between upper and lower case : 2 strike [alt] key
  • (Comment) :
    Method2 is free from the burden to strike fast, but method1 is faster if mastered. Under method1, if time-gap is extended enough then the burden of double_click disappears. In this case, to input 'rr','oo',etc., in between you can two click [alt]key or one click [->]key, the former of which is not recommended because fast typing causes fast double click and so causes unexpectedly changing the case of keyboard. This method is called [modified method 1].
use Alt as Caps Lock
To double-click [Alt] key is to transfer between capital keys and small-letter keys in both of Method1 including modified method1 and Method2. This double-clicking is not influenced by below time-gap customization and is faster(15) than default(25). So you need to double-click faster. CapsLock key(under Special key) is also available to transfer between capital keys and small keys, .

You input a group of letters separated by comma(,) - aá,eéèë,uúü. In each group the first letter is a leading letter and the others are pendent letters. The leading letters must be included in key editor. Then if you input a leading letter in 16 keys, its pendent letters are displayed in the 3th menu key(reserved key) one by one. If you click the key, the letter is written on the text screen and the next pendent letter orderly appears if any.
