Table 2 - Navigating and Controls

Table 2. Functions common to all modes of Table 1.

The GKOS reference number is just a global reference to the key combination. Key
Code is the mathematical value of the combination when keys A, B, C, D, E, and F are
given values 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 respectively.

Note that these tables are not intended for learning to type on GKOS. It would be far
too difficult this way. Simple illustrative virtual keyboards exist for that purpose.

SHIFT, ALT, CTRL and SYMB keys have an effect only on the first following character.
Pressing SHIFT twice sets CAPS LOCK which can be turned off by one more SHIFT.

Logically, pressing ALT or CTRL sends immediately information that the key is being
pressed (’make’ code) and the release of ALT/CTRL (’break’ code) is sent after another
character is pressed or when pressing the same key again.

123-ABC changes the mode of the keyboard. Exiting the new mode is done only by
pressing 123-ABC again. Pressing 123-ABC three times should always turn on the
default mode of the keyboard (often ABC mode).
