Can you please add 3u spacebar unit support? At the present, it gives this error

"Error encountered interpreting source data: The keys at the following positions are an unsupported size:"

The detailed spec is 19.05 mm from center key

"3 units (57mm wide, 3 mounts, 19.05mm apart) One center mount and two extra mounts 1 unit (19.05mm) left and right of the center.

For this space bar exist molds in the Signature Plastics SA-family in form of a regular key." Source:

Thank you

When I do this I will want to add all the other spacebar sizes too. Some of the spacebars have multiple variations with different mount positions. I'm not sure how to have the user specify which mount positions they want. I will probably need to extend the keyboard-layout-editor markup.

I'm busy with another project right now and this is unlikely to happen soon. I advise that you export to DXF and add your spacebar manually.

I am trying to do a custom layout and this warning does not allow me to create a layout. May be leave this a warning, but don't disable the submit button?

My use case is that I am using a few extra cherry switches (un-connected) as stabilizers. So, I am creating dummy keys to get the spacing right (for space bar). However, I am thwarted by the warning.

I understand that 3u caps are not a thing (as far as I know).

Is there a reason you can't make your dummy keys 1u in size?

No. That is what I did for now.
