Photoshop CS5 V1 Options
1. Choose your Cherry MX Switch type:
Cherry MX Blue - Audible click with tactile bump. 50cN actuation. This switch is popular among professional typists around the world. The audible click is reminiscent of the older mechanical keyboards which used to be the norm. Not for use in libraries.
Cherry MX Brown - Tactile bump. 45cN actuation. The Browns are sort of a "quiet" version of the MX Blues. The tactile bump still tells your fingers when the switch has been activated. No clicking makes it much more favorable for those typing in close proximity to others or in environments where noise may be an issue.
Cherry MX Black - Linear action. 65cN actuation. The heaviest of the three switches. This switch has found its way into many gaming keyboards. The resistance is constant throughout the stroke. While it may take it little more finger strength to press this switch, it also means it resets quicker making it more desirable when rapid presses of the same key are required.
Cherry MX Red - Linear action. 45cN actuation. The Red switches provide a light, but smooth keystroke. Although this switch has the same actuation force as the Browns, it feels much lighter due to the linear action.
2. Choose your key layout style: (See Example)
Icon - Features all of the tool keyboard shortcuts laser etched onto the keys. The icons are balanced in size and are clearly visible while not so large that they distract from the other keys.
Function - Combines the full icon layout with descriptive text for the function modifier keys.
Note: Photoshop CS5 "function" layout is pictured. Please visit our layouts page to view the layouts in depth; (Layouts Page). Photoshop layouts are located under "software layouts".
3. Option to install switch dampeners
"Bottoming out" is a term used to describe when a key stroke is pressed all the way down causing the inside of your key cap to hit the top of the switch. This causes an additional clack from the collision. Switch dampeners are soft rubber O-rings that we install onto every single keycap to cushion the landing of the keycap. This also very slightly reduces the max travel distance of the switch. (Less than 0.5mm)
This modification is enjoyed by typers who usually bottom out their key strokes. The dampeners will cut away extra noise and shock from bottoming out.
