Karabiner keyboard remap

Hi all. I was directed here from the download page of the Karabiner keyboard remapper app. Apologies if this is not the right forum for my question.

I wonder if anyone can help: I just bought a new MacBook (OS Sierra) and am trying to use Karabiner to remap the delete button to the left side of the keyboard. (I developed a chronic RSI when using the usual place on the top right, and found this an instant cure.) 

I did it easily on my old Mac but two things have complicated matters this time. Firstly the new keyboard is bilingual (English-Japanese) as I am living in Japan and bought it here. Therefore the layout is slightly different, with the left-side keys in a different order. Secondly, and more relevantly perhaps, I have tried again and again to follow the instructions but it won`t seem to let me assign delete to any of the left-side keys. I have currently remapped delete to F3, which is better than nothing, but if anyone can walk me through how to get it over to left-control or left-shift I would be very grateful. 

Many thanks in advance. 

Hi @videsh18,

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our Community organized so users can more easily find information.

As you’ll notice, your Topic is now in the Project Development Help and Advice board.

Additionally, I wanted to mention that if you don’t get the help you’re looking for from this particular community, you might want to try getting help somewhere that focuses on Karabiner. In fact, I’d recommend checking out the Karabiner repo for support. It looks like the download page actually directs you to this repo. When looking for support on a particular project, it’s always a good idea to look through the README and also, lots of projects accept questions via a new issue in the repo. Just be sure to read any CONTRIBUTING guides that may be included in a repo before submitting an issue to any repo.

I also found this documentation on Karabiner that might be helpful.

We want to make sure you’re getting the best support you can, but this particular forum may not be the right place for this specific topic. I hope this information helps.

Best of luck!
