I wrote an article about the redesign of MNT Reform https://mntre.com/media/news_md/2019-05-20-reintroducing-reform.html
@mntmn Really should consider putting the trackball on the left side.
@mntmn Personally for me, its the same way it's more comfortable. I've used laptops with a touchpad much more right, and it really cumbersome when it comes to typing. The ones I've used aligned left are a dream to use, as it leaves more room and easier access to the keyboard (right hand isn't blocking it), and you can sit more naturally.
@katnjia hmm so you type with one hand and use the trackpad/ball with the other hand or how...? maybe you can make a sketch?
@mntmn Oh sorry I kind of mixed up the directions.
My comment about blocking was more directed at laptops with the touchpad aligned to the left. I don't doubt that the trackball interface isn't in the way.
Anyway, the easiest way to understand what I'm hinting at is just run a test design with the trackball aligned to the right instead of the middle, and see how it feels.
