Except for the mouse.


Since the computer mouse requires movement across flat surfaces the USB-C has to be twisted properly into the plug.
This is the expected behavior to support the hardware interface and is a part of USB-C requirement for all computer mouse(s).

Since keyboards are not moved across the surface they do not have this requirement.

A lot of people don't know about this, but the standard is clearly stated in the docs: http://gutenberg.org/cache/epub/10000/pg10000.html[^] Roll eyes | :rolleyes:














Am i funny yet? Laugh | :laugh:
