My colleague made a complete keyboard package (.ico, .keyman-touch-layout, .kmn, .kps, .kvks, readme.htm and welcome.htm) and sent me the project folder (including source and build subfolders). I wanted to make my own keyboard based off of is, but not modify the one he had made.
Here someone describes a similar situation:
It’s not clear to me how this was implemented.
- File>Save as
- File>Save a copy as
But that only copied one file- not the whole project folder.
Then I tried making a copy of the project folder, using Notepad++ to change every instance of the old project name to the new one, across all files. Then I used Advanced Renamer to do the same to all the file names. It compiled and apparently installed, but was not visible as a new keyboard.
What is the correct process for this?
For the time being, I made a new blank project and copied and pasted the various pieces into it.
Thanks so much,
