Chording Keyboard in ktouch

I'm learning the BAT Keyboard (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BAT_keyboard) and would like to use ktouch for this. Chording keyboards require the pressing of not only one but multiple keys to produce a character. This would work fine, if ktouch highlighted *all* the keys that have a certain character mentioned, and not just one. I tried adding character 'h' to multiple keys, but only one of them is highlighted when I should press 'h'.

keyboard layout for chording keyboard

This is an example layout. I chose us(intl) because I don't know how to explicitly tell ktouch which layout to use...

training screen: allow multiple highlighted keys for the next character

This useful for training on chorded keyboards where one has to press
multiple keys at the same time to produce a character.
