Use Cmd button instead of CTRL for shortcut

Hello,


Is it possible to add option to use Cmd button for shortcut key in RDP session.  Like CMD+C, CMD+V...


Not CTRL+...


All MAC app use CMD button and i always made de mistakes


Thanks!


Hi Steeve,


that's already supported.

Just go to the "Input" settings of your RDP connection and enable both "Windows Keys Passthrough" and "Remap macOS keyboard shortcuts to their Windows equivalent".


Hope that helps!


cheers,

The "Remap macOS keyboard shortcuts to their Windows equivalent" does not do anything for me. The "Windows Keys Passthrough" setting does work, but the remap feature does not remap the keyboard shortcuts.

Kevin,


which keyboard shortcuts have you tried?

Same problem here. Trying to use copy and paste (CMD+C, CMD-V) and doesn't work. When I hit the CMD key, it thinks I'm hitting the Windows key and brings up the start menu.

Hi Matt,


do you have "Windows Keys Passthrough" and "Remap macOS keyboard shortcuts to their Windows equivalent" enabled in the "Input" settings of your RDP connection?

Also, are your modifier keys in "System Preferences - Keyboard - Modifier Keys..." configured as default or did your remap them?


cheers,

 "Windows Keys Passthrough" and "Remap macOS keyboard shortcuts to their Windows equivalent"  are enabled. Yes, I have changed my modifier keys:

The next version will allow you to remap modifier keys in "Preferences - Connection Types - Remote Desktop - Plugin Settings".

Once the next version is available, please let me know if this works for you!


thx,

felix

The first beta version that supports remapping modifier keys is now out.
Get it here as usual: https://www.royalapplications.com/go/kb-ts-mac-downloadbeta

Flex, where is that option?

Hi Matt,


you can find this under "Preferences - Connection Types - Remote Desktop - Plugin Settings".

Is it possible to pass all remapped CMD key presses like CMD+N, CMD+W or CMD+Q to the RDP-Desktop?


In my case I've changed CTRL →  CMD and CMD → CTRL, that means when I press locally CMD+X it will send to the remote-desktop CTRL+X (cut to clipboard) and if I press locally CTRL+E it will send CMD+E (opens explorer) to the remote-desktop.


Currently CMD+W dosn't get passed to the remote-desktop and closes currently the active session/window. CMD+N doesn't get passed, too. Instead of sending CTRL+N to remote-desktop it sends to Royal TS "New Document" shortcut.


There should be a way to pass all CMD actions to an remote-desktop when the remote-desktop is currently in-use/focus.

@Sascha: Unfortunately this is not supported at the moment when modifier keys are remapped.
