#4949 new enhancement

Need to be able to re-assign keys for Mac

Reported by: Simon Wade Owned by:
Component: host support Version: VirtualBox 3.0.6
Keywords: mac Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Mac OS X


The main modifier key on Mac is the "Command" button - not the "Control" button which is used on Windows. It would be really useful to be able to map the Command button to Control inside VirtualBox. This is what you can do in Parallels and it's a very handy feature.

Also very useful would be to add support for specific key combinations to be automatically sent to the host without having to press the host key. For example on the Mac Command-Tab is used to switch applications, so it would be really useful for this key combination to always be sent to the host to help with fast switching between VirtualBox and the other applications running on the host.

Many thanks for a fantastic product,

I would really appreciate that too (and leave this note to follow progress on this enhancement)

Keep up the great work, aquarius

add me to that list too[[BR]] allowing the user to set these special keys, eg. in VirtualBox's preferences (as in Fusion or Parallels) would make this programm an excellent choice.
