  1. Select the split keyboard by dragging the keyboard key (lower right of screen)
  2. If you're the kind of person who sometimes cheats and uses your right hand to type the 'T', you still can! It's invisible, but it is just to the left of the Y. And if you want to use your left hand to type the Y, it is (invisibly) just to the right of the T. And so on, for H, G, V, and B. So go ahead and cheat!
