I have attached the edited file to help you save editing the code yourself, but you can DIY it if you like

Thanks again rossman for showing me how to edit the bars this way

just download this file of lua and place it in your /wow/interface/addons/nui/Layouts/Default and delete the old nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua and save the downloaded one in that place.

Setting up your N52te

Now it time to program your N52te, You can do it how ever you like, but this is what works best for me.

I set the main keys from one (top left) to 14 (bottem right next to the scroll) as ...
shift, 1, 2, 3, -, Ctrl, 4, 5, 6, =, Alt, 7, 8, 9
I set the scroll to have up as Tab, Press as space and down as `,
Then the small round button above the Dpad as esc
I leave the Dpad as it come, so i am able to move my toon ingame vai the arrow keys.
And last but not least is the 15th number button under the Dpad as 0.

This may look silly but here some pics to help you under stand what each button does.

This is what it looks like (again with more overlay) of what it looks like

Before you ask why i have my 0 under the Dpad is i use this key as a panic button, so i have my arrrrgh macro on it.

Made to play on for hours
Programable keys (yes you can have a jump, spin and shoot key)
Fits your hand better

Cost money to buy one
