These first two images are more of a heads up, so you don't freak out when installing the UIX software with the 700K. After agreeing to install UIX, it will automatically check and flash the new firmware to the keyboard, without any provocation or way to stop it.
We did freak out a fair bit when we saw that ten minutes had passes and we were still at only 81% of the flash. At that point, we were about ready to start trying things we shouldn't. While it seemed like we may have had an issue, the firmware did finally finish, and we were able to get into the software.
With UIX now open, the widow offers naming at the top, and to the left are the management, profiles, and other tabs used for various windows to access all of the features and functions that the 700K delivers. Here we are in the Performance window on profile one, and we can now set the polling rate, roll-over support, repeat delay time, rate acceleration, the mode of the backlight in normal use and while sleeping, and the time it takes for that to happen. It also shows how to clear the profiles in the last section.
Key assignment offers anything you need pertaining to both the G-keys, as well as any of the keys on the keyboard. Of course, there are preset functions to apply, and you can drag from the right to the boxes at the left, or reassign keys to suit your needs.
If you click on the Macro tab from the last image, the right side expands to deliver those options. Simply name the macro and get recording. You can always edit them later by adding in delays, repeats, and you can even import and export from PC file storage.
In the lighting controls, things get pretty deep as well. Not only can you pick through all of the options at the right for the bulk of the keyboard, but by tinkering around, you can set each individual key in any way you see fit. You can customize both live use as well as what happens in sleep mode.
There is a limited amount of storage on the keyboard, if you call 512KB a limit. In the management section, you can load three profiles to the keyboard at any given time, but this is also where you can swap through various profiles to use what you need at the time, and take it with you without the need for drivers after programming it to the 700K.
