How can we make PadKeys better?

Change US (& AU/NZ) Keyboard Layout

Could you please relocate the "\" key on the English (US) Keyboard Layout (and also AU/NZ Layouts -- which also uses the US Keyboard Layout)?

The result will look closer to Apple's US Keyboard Layout.

Thank you for the suggestion and detailed mockups. The backslash IS in a non-standard position, but we are hesitant to make a heavily-used key (backspace) smaller in order to standardize the location of a key many users will never touch.

    The smaller tab key reminds me of the UK keyboard. I use both US and UK keyboards. It's a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing tip.

    I always had an issue with the proximity between the delete and return keys. This idea finally solves that issue!!!
