The screenshot 'emulatorp.png' looks marvelous in my eyes - it fired up/boosted my wish to get one when available :D
Excellent, exciting work !

If possible, please consider the optical changes concerning the numeric keys as mentioned before. IMHO the two function keys should be coloured, not just stickers like with the DM 15L ...

Not sure I got you right. :? In emulatorp, both prefix keys are entirely coloured. Is this what you wanted?

Upps, mistake on my side.
YES, that is exactly what I wanted - great !
(pondering about how to paint the DM-15L prefix keys - but that's OFFTOPIC here ;) ...)

Looking at my DM 16L, the prefix keys are printed there (definitely no stickers). YMMV of course, but I doubt it.

No stickers on either of my DM15L units either AFAICS.
Not SwissMicros staff, just an enthusiast.

Uh hu - probably I have to wear sackcloth and ashes: you're both correct - no stickers, the prefix keys of DM 15L are indeed painted on their topside.
Nevertheless I am looking which kind of colour is best for painting the whole key in yellow & blue ...
(details in Basel?) But let's return to 43S again.

If you refer to the DM1xL then you have to paint. There are a lot of nice colours made for modellers ...

For the 43S, yellow was already part of the keys sprue of the DM42. I hope a third colour is viable (details in Alschwil).

This is the one that I prefer over the 4 initially proposed.
