Hello all, first post here.

I have ordered and am getting ready to build my first ErgoDox, which will be the Infinity ErgoDox kit. I am planning to wire LEDs in the switches. Physically soldering the LEDs is fairly straightforward, as is programming basic backlight support such as on off, brightness control, etc. However, I am confused about how to configure more complex per-key backlight mapping.

Specifically, I would like the backlight to be illuminated only for the keys active on any given layer. For instance, I am planning to set up a layer with the numpad and mathematical keys active as well as a more standard set of arrow keys mapped to WASD. I would like to set the backlight so that those are the only switches illuminated when that layer is active. How would I go about doing that? The online configurator does not allow me to select whether the LED for any given switch should be on or off on a given layer.

Thank you for your help!
