How do I make an "L" shaped Keyboard with Build-A-Board for Windows?

For Build-A-Board 2.20 Release 3, you need to update the run-time MYTSOFT executable. Refer to the interim updates tech item to retrieve the updated MYTSOFT.EXE:

Tech Item PU2011120670

Then follow these steps:
  1. Follow the instructions at tech update PU2011120670 and unzip the update, then copy MYTSOFT.exe into the MSWIN32 and TEST folders
  2. Now run Build-A-Board, and create a project that matches the full resolution of the screen for the target device, e.g. 1280x1024
  3. Verify you are building a 2.20 KBF and your target is Windows 32-bit (UNICODE 2.20) (F11, Run-Time | Select Target System)
  4. Press F7 to open the project properties - set opening Top & Left both to 0
  5. Click on the "Edit Keyboard Run-Time Settings" to add a [Region] Section to the bottom of the text file
  6. Switch to Windows explorer, and view the unzipped files from the downloaded zip in step 1 - Open the example MYTSOFT.INI to find the [Region] entries - copy this text from Notepad
  7. Switch back to the open Run-Time Settings, and paste the text from the previous step, and Edit it to look something like this:
    [Region]
    Area1=Rect,1000,0,1280,1024
    Area2=Rect,0,800,1280,1024
    ;Area3=Ellipse,1210,2,1280,70
    ;Area4=
    ;Area5=Ellipse,0,194,70,264
    ;Area6=Ellipse,1210,194,1280,264
    ;
  8. Now use File | Save, and then File | Exit
  9. Click OK to close the My-T-Soft Build-A-Board properties window
  10. Use F9 or click on the F9/Build button to build your layout
  11. Then Run and test the board - adjust region as necessary to create proper rectangles (F7 | Edit Keyboard Run-Time Settings), and add / modify keys as needed
