I'm excited to report that I've ordered a KeyMouse, and I'm working on preparing my custom layouts prior to its arrival. I've put Fn(Color)Lock keys right next to the Fn(Color) keys on the (Color) layers so that I can lock with a rolling motion or hold the Fn(Color) key if I don't want to lock. Once I did this, I thought of something else that seemed clever at first, but then it occurred to me it might not work. The idea was to use the Fn(Color) keys as FnWhiteLock keys on their (Color) layer so that if I use the Fn(Color)Lock key on the Fn(Color) layer and then release the Fn(Color) key accordingly, I will be able to switch back to the Base (FnWhite) layer. One potential problem with this seemingly clever solution is that I don't know whether holding the Fn(Color) key will then mean I am pressing the FnWhiteLock key, effectively bouncing back and forth or locking myself on the base layer until I reprogram. Another potential problem is that releasing the Fn(Color) key after pressing the Fn(Color)Lock key might also trigger the FnWhiteLock key depending on how these keys trigger in general. It also occurs to me that I have no experience with how the device will actually work, so I may be going about this all wrong. For instance, perhaps Fn(Color)Lock on the (Color) layer will also unlock the color and I don't need a FnWhiteLock key at all. Can someone confirm how the layers work in this regard?

Also, if the Fn(Color)Lock keys work just like Caps/Num/ScrollLock keys, then I have to wonder if locking in one color layer while another is already locked will put me in another (mixed) color layer that isn't programmed or mean I need to unlock said layers in the reverse order afterwards. I'm thinking only one layer can apply at a time and the locked layer is the locked layer with all other layers being unlocked, but confirmation on that would be nice as well.

@Dustin Henning Your first example where you push Fn(Color) and lock the layer by pressing a Fn Lock key right next to it would work fine as we personally use some of our layers like this. Your second example also works. You can press the Fn Blue Lock key and it will not press the same key on the Blue layer until you release the key and press it again.

The layers are made so only one layer can be active at a time. You do not need to unlock layers.
