  • Compose mode allows <shift><enter><fn> s a to combine " and a to get a special character, for example.
  • In XFCE, if a program is greater than the Pandora's screen resolution, you can scroll by holding down shift (or the left shoulder button) then clicking anywhere in the window and dragging it around.
  • In minimenu, pressing Y when an icon is highlighted brings up the readme files.
  • In DOSBox, in order to use the colon symbol, you have to press shift (left shoulder button) + Fn + ";". This also goes for the underscore symbol.

In the months before the first preorders were taken, there was much discussion and community voting about the best layout. This was one of the final votes. The final layout was different from either one of the two most popular community proposals, but incorporated some of the suggestions such as having a "Pandora" button.


The matrix layour is detailed on p.20 of the Hardware hacker's guide (here). A more readable version appears below.
