10.6: Use 'special' keys in screen sharing
Authored by: barefootguru on Sep 14, '09 01:20:17AM

I dislike this new behaviour—I liked having the remote session contained in its own window without 'stealing' meta-keys like command-tab.

But today command-tab and F12 are operating on my local session, even after a quit and relaunch of Screen Sharing. Something's fishy… I'll report back if I ever find out how to deliberately change this.

I also wish that they provided users with an option to choose between local and remote targets for these commands.

My preference for a default is definitely for the local host to consume and apply the command-tab commands. And changing default behaviour is rather risky.

However, I have found that occasionally command-tab does work on the local host. That is what is happening now for me with a SL client and leopard server. Yet this same server usually captures my command-tab keystrokes.

I don't know what the difference is. Maybe Apple has provided some way to switch modes and I accidentally trigger it sometimes.
