@M1sf3t cool cool cool no doubt.
One more thing that's keeping me from remapping is that I'm still very raw with Dvorak (10wpm or less). Remapping now might not be a good idea because it'll create an inconsistency.
Consider closing a tab in the browser. I press Ctrl+, (after remap) but my mind will think it's Ctrl+w. So when I actually want to press w, I'll inadvertently go for the qwerty position.
zlice3027346dand you have now found that main reason Dvorak, or any other keyboard layout, will never catch on.
as soon as i hit this i scraped learning/using it. unless a band of people get together and go through every open source project's keyboard binding to add alternatives - i'm out
Ctrl+x/c/v stay as-is. I don't care that the keys aren't adjacent.
vim's hjkl - I never found that intuitive anyway, I use the arrow keys. If I had to, I'd probably remap those to chtn.
A lot of software (including games) nowadays provides Dvorak mode.
The rest gets remapped. E.g. wasd to .oeu, which is one column to the right so my index finger stays on the key with the nub.
