The MacroPact is a rPico/KMK macropad with IPS display by kbjunky.
Published July 4, 2021

Some time ago my friend approached me with an idea of building a macropad for his Photoshop workflow. Key feature was to have a screen where he would be able to see what shortcut/macro is currently assigned to what key.


Source files pending. UPDATE 2021/07/31: MacroPact source files and build log released.
