Custom keyboard layout, non-letter characters.
I'm trying to write using 10 fingers, but frequent need to navigate cursor makes it look more like weird ragtime playing slowing the whole process a lot.
I've used MicrosoftKeyboardLayoutCreator to create my own layout to meet my needs, but I'm struggling on duplicating 'middle' section of keyboard: Arrow keys, home, end, delete, page-up and page-down (insert is pointless).
Can somebody give me pointers how to do that in this software or another?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. a little more details: everything should remain as it is defined in keyboard layout, which highly resembles US layout. Just needed to add these symbols:
left -- alt-gr + s
right -- alt-gr + f
up -- alt-gr + e
down -- alt-gr + d
home -- alt-gr + a
end -- alt-gr + g
pgup -- alt-gr + r
pgdown -- alt-gr + v

OK, this is just a reply for anybody who is interrested in better typing, better performance and mostly more comfortable typing.
1. Based on what I've found and on replies to my questions on this topic -- this cannot be done using standard ways like MKLC or resharper etc. The keyboard subsystem isn't designed in a way which allows this. Probably. Or it's burdened too deep to actually use it.
2. But it is possible, using autohotkey resp. portable keyboard layout built upon it

app completely bypases M$ keyboard layout, read scancodes and offers much more than MKLC and M$ keyboard layout can offer.
please notice that this is more a hack than official solution, so you can expect some difficulties(like not very simple configuration and help-images which aren't up-to-date and does not relate to config so they are rather confusing), BUT the whole thing works. And regardlessfrom mentioned dificulties this is remarkable work.
