This common Norwegian case layout is based on the layout provided by Knut Ketil Oftedahl at atelier S8, Norway in 2021. It is somewhat similar to the 1915 Danish case of J.H.Schultz, but the Norwegian case has 125 boxes, with 80 in the upper bays and 45 in the lower, whereas the Danish case has 130 boxes, 84 being in the upper bays and 46 in the lower. The contents are almost the same, but, for example, the Norwegian case omits boxes for Ĕ, ç, and œ and the Danish case uses two boxes each for k and s.

The boxes for spacing have been translated as gefirt = ems, halvgefirt = ens, drittel = thicks (3 to em), slis = mids (4 to em), skytelinjer = leads. This latter may be for quadrats of varying size, as the boxes are rather small for actual leads.

The empty case is Norwegian.
