On the driver, I am using the default key mapping configuration but some of the keys' output is different. For example, the question mark key should be default configured next to the period key, but when I actually use the question key, it does é or É. Has anyone experienced thisÉ
How can I fix thisÉ

Also, Shift + 6 should be ^, but it produces ? instead. I looked into the driver's keyboard layout configuration where I would normally remap the keys, but ^ does not exist as an option. Not sure if this issue is related to the above, but if anyone has any advice on this too, that'd be great. Thanks for your help!

That sounds like you're using a French keyboard? Are you using that by any chance?

Hey! I was wondering if there's any way to remove the light indicator in the bottom right when the keyboard is paired through bluetooth. It bothers me and I wish I could turn it off because there are only three solid colors for it, which don't really match my aesthetic. Thank you!

My FN key blinks white (FN2) but no red light and it disconnects but RGB stays on what I don't understand

Hey my 2,4 ghz usb dongle stopped working for some time now and I read in your guide that you can pair the keyboard back to the dongle via long pressing Fn + R and then the led will blink in a white light. Once its blinking what am I supposed to do? Put the dongle into the PC? Installing the software? Go back to usb mode and then pair it? Thank you in advance

Wired did work and looked like the battery level was too low to register key presses. Was using it on dongle when it occurred and after charging I didn't see it happen again.

Anyone knows if there's any way to override pre-setted fn functions? for example I want to set fn + leftArrow to ctrl + leftArrow (I used to have a ctrl where now I have fn, but I prefere not to move fn key to other one. Any ideas? It also disturbb me in other keys as fn + c for example

What is the correct layout for ´ç´ and ´" "´?

@tshmieldev

Hello. I found an issue in the programming of GMK67. If you hold any keys and press and release "FN" the keys you were holding will be all released. This is unwanted behavior and is not the case with DZ65 based keyboards, or any other custom keyboards I know of. This diminishes the functionality as I often need to press F1 while holding W, and it makes my W key deregister. Is there any fix?

My GMK67 have the alt and fn swapped. Someone know how to fix it?

@alicercedigital You can remap keys through the software provided in the link above under "Driver/Software". You can simply swap them back into their original places.

@Takewi "United States-International" on Windows and "US International" (us, alt, int) on Linux and macOS. You can also customize any layout using the keyboard software.

Hello :)
Just got my GMK67. I'm using layout "US International" and everything is working fine except the FN Combinations Keys on my Mac. When I try FN + 8 it only executes the FN8 action, but doesn't starts the music or plays it. Any idea what could be wrong?
I have the keyboard in Mac mode
Thank you so much

I have a lot of issues.

  1. my Bluetooth is not connecting, I hold down fn + q, w and e individually and neither of them work
  2. my keyboard is the BOYI gmk67 and it didn't come with a USB dongle, how do I replace it.

@willis444

Hello @FilipJake, this is the menu for the ZUOYA GMK67, I am afraid that the BOYI GMK67 has its own separate manual. Correct me if I am wrong btw.

@mikkielynn

if you're using MacOS:
go to settings > keyboard > keyboard shortcuts > functions keys, and switch the toggle "Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

UPD: actually no, go to keyboard shortcuts > modifier keys. Then Select keyboard as GMK67 and set function key as "no action". this should do the trick

I was using my GMK67 normally and out of nowhere the 2.4 Ghz connection with the dongle stopped working, I've tried restoring the keyboard's factory settings and changing the USB ports and using it on another computer, but nothing works, it only works in USB and Bluetooth mode. , does anyone have a solution to this problem or provide Zuoya support?

I couldn't solve the problem, the manufacturer offered to send me another free USB dongle, but the shipping costs would be on me
But I had already sold the keyboard
