Left and right modifier keys mirrored on Mac OS X 10.14.5 (Mojave) as host

Reported by: larso Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.8
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


Repro steps:

  1. Connect external keyboard
  2. Under System Preferences --> Keyboard --> Keyboard --> Modifier Keys

Change option to command and command to option

  1. Start VirtualBox
  2. Under Preferences --> Input --> Virtual Machine

Set "Host Key Combination" press command + option to the left Note: it says right command + right option

Impact: on Windows guest running a non US keyboard, e.g. Swedish layout, the option key is now alt gr and not alt

Same thing on 5.2.30

Might be something in Mac OS which also affect Emacs:
