Possum Palantype support for Plover

Project Description

Possum Palantype support for Plover.

Activating Palantype

After installing this plugin, you need to turn on Palantype in Plover:

  1. In Plover’s configuration, go to the Systems tab, and change the active system to Possum Palantype.

  2. In Plover’s machine tab, select the Palantype machine and ensure the settings point to your Palantype machine.

    • “Palantype” machine type in Plover is what other CAT software calls “Palantype B”.
    • If you have a Neutrino machine, you may need to select the “Gemini PR” protocol.
    • If you do not own a Palantype machine, you can use an N-key rollover keyboard instead, as outlined in this tutorial.
    • At this time, other protocols are not supported.
  3. Plover will install sample.json and user.json as dictionaries. You can remove the sample if you already have your own dictionary or want to start from scratch. Plover accepts json and RTF dictionaries. It is recommended to use user.json when adding new strokes.

  4. Note: at the moment, only ULFTS is supported to backspace the last stroke.

Common Commands

It would be a good time to define some custom commands that make using Plover much easier!

The “Add Definition” button lets you define a new dictionary entry. The first recommended entry is one that summons this dialog!

  • T+UPT: {PLOVER:ADD_TRANSLATION} (think “dictionary update”)

Some other useful translations for you to define (come up with your own strokes):

  • {-|} capitalize next word
  • {^^} suppress space
  • {#right}, {#left}, {#up}, {#down} press arrow keys: right, left, up, down (recommendation is to create an arrow-key cluster on one hand with a chord on the other)
  • {#control(c)} copy on Windows, Linux, or {#command(c)} for Mac
  • {#control(v)} paste on Windows, Linux, or {#command(v)} for Mac
  • {#control(z)} undo on Windows, Linux, or {#command(z)} for Mac
  • {#tab} press the tab key
  • {#alt(tab tab)} change application on Windows
  • {#backspace} press the backspace key
  • {#escape} press the escape key
  • {#return} press the return/enter key
  • {^\n^}{-|} new line, capitalize
  • {^\n\n^}{-|} new paragraph, capitalize
