Lenovo resolves my biggest gripe with the Yoga keyboard

by Volker Weber

My Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and the newer and much improved Yoga 900 have an extra column of keys to the right of the enter and backspace keys. This makes it very difficult for me to type on those keyboards. I always orient myself from the side of the keyboard. This was one of the reasons I liked the Thinkpad X1 Yoga keyboard so much. Now the Yoga 900S ditches the extra column. Thank you, Lenovo.

Can you spot the other two issues with this new keyboard? They are even worse.

No cursor block and a wrong layout around the enter key.

1. Wide enter key (as on the US keyboard) instead of a tall enter key. # moves up a line.

2. Narrow right shift to the right of the up key. Instead of typing a capital letter you go up a line.

while loving shortcuts, my lenovo helix bothers me with a "FN" key to the left oft "Ctrl"

That's on my Macbook as well. I got used to it. However, ctrl isn't used that often on the Mac. It's cmd-c, cmd-v etc.

@Kai - for most Lenovo models the Ctrl and Fn keys can be switched in the BIOS.
