Tested and mine doesn't do this. Try to turn off key repeat: (mine below is not off) Maybe you have a non-Apple keyboard with anti-ghosting?

That is normal, I think this was added when yosemite was released. Its basically predictive text for the mac. That shows up every time you press the esc key in a textfield. Hope this helps :)

Since you mentioned that you could use 3rd party apps you should have a look at Keyboard Maestro, allowing you to create macros and triggers. For example you could have Keyboard Maestro switch to the Dvorak keyboard whenever you are using Type Fu. Here is how I would go about this: Create a new Macro called "Switch to Dvorak". Pick "Application" trigger ...

It would probably be only a couple minutes work to create a custom layout that does what you need with the graphic interface of Ukelele. http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele I made a quick one you can get at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46870715/k/USMod.keylayout.zip (but I can't test it because I don't have the right keyboard). To install, put the ....

I solve a similar problem using the free public domain utility Karabiner. This allows for extremely extensive remapping of single or multiple key presses (including control keys) to any specifiable Unicode character, plus other operations. It is frequently updated, and photos has an older version for much older versions of OSX. You'll need to play a little ...

Newer versions of Safari use the em-dash instead of n-dash. Example: Safari — iOS 9.3 — iPhone You can find it under the punctuation section of the Character Picker.

In order to use an AppleScript script in TextWrangler's Script menu, it (or a link to it) must be in TextWrangler's Script folder located at, ~/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Scripts in order for it to appear on the menu. Note: The "~" in that path is your Home Folder and the Library folder may not be visible. You can open it from TextWrangler's ...

You must put the script in the "/Users/yourName/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Scripts" folder After that: Open the preferences of the TextWrangler Select "Menus & ShortCuts" --> "Scripts" --> "your script" to add your shortcut to the script TextWrangler accept the (cmd + enter) keys as shortcut

The best resource for anything like this is Doug's AppleScripts, in this case possibly the collection by Wally - Wally's Scripts v1.0 There is also a simple tutorial on how to make your own - Setting iTunes EQ and Volume with AppleScript The only extra thing you need is to make these using Automator, as a Service, then use System Prefs > Shortcuts > ...

There are keyboard shortcuts for almost every menu command. Here's a link for Microsoft's Office for Mac keyboard shortcuts site. I normally frown on just posting a link but because there's so many shortcuts available it doesn't make sense to copy/paste them all here. Also, if you don't find the shortcut you're looking for, you can always create your own.

I am at an Apple Store right now for a wired keyboard issue and the keyboard was over a year old. They did replace it for me with a brand new unit. That said, they do treat situation on a case by case basis.

ABC Extended behavior has not changed from that of US Extended, you type circumflex via option 6 and then the base character. Or the base character then option shift 6.

Create a Service Automator workflow. Set it as no input and available from any application. Place there "Open Application" module and choose Terminal.app. Save it with the name like: "OpenTerminal". Then in keyboard shortcuts preferences, select Services and look for "OpenTerminal" service -> assign Your shortcut there.

This is because the shortcut you created is specific to the Application. When you create the shortcut, you need to enter the "exact name of the menu command" within the Application specified in the dropdown above. Typing "Terminal" won't work. 3 Options to quickly Launch Terminal Add to your Dock Open Your Applications Folder and simply drag the ...

I'd be surprised to find anyone compiling such info for the nearly 2000 emoji for old os's. In any case, display depends primarily on the local font installed, so if fonts can be added, more emoji can normally be displayed on any OS. See this chart for some info: http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html

Most likely, your internal keyboard and trackpad has failed. The "Internal Keyboard/Trackpad" is a USB device, so there is no special controller or circuitry involved on your logic board. If you plug in an external USB keyboard/mouse and everything works, then it's definitely not your logic board as the symptoms would be present then as well. As for the ...

Since I ran into the same problem and this comes up on Google, I will provide an answer, even if there is no question. When my keyboard and touchpad stopped working, the power button was still ok. Resetting NVRAM did not help. Using an external keyboard and mouse was fine. Typing sudo dmesg | tail on the command line was showing similar messages: ...

You most likely caused damage to your MacBook Pro's screen, video cable, and or keyboard cable. I did a bit of research and found a very similar condition to the picture you provided (see below). This was posted on the iFixit forum. The resolution to this problem was a warranty replacement. Being that your MacBook Pro is 6 to 7 years old, this will be ...

Yes it works well when connected via lightning cable only with bluetooth disabled or enabled. I just tested it. :) Btw, the keyboard lasts about 3-4months with every day typing.. 5min charge can last you hours. The Magic keyboard's battery last very very longer than previous edition.

I had the same problem: after a visit to the Genius Bar, the top row all of a sudden would only function as "function" keys; Brightness Down, for instance, would only trigger Spotlight etc. and the volume controls wouldn't work. After spending about an hour with Apple help, we tried the System Preferences box, resetting SMC and PRAM, re-installed the OS, ...

Problem 1) Use RealVNC client. In my experience, alt (Option) is in the Windows Key and Command is in the alt. Check out the documentation here https://www.realvnc.com/docs/mac-keyboard-mapping.html There is no fix for the alt (Option) key on TightVNC. I tried to use software on the Mac to remap / change the keys functionality such as Karabiner (previously ...

Latest version of OS maps this to Spaces. Even if you have Spaces turned off, the hotkeys can still get short-circuited in this hidden location: Terminal.app cursor keys: disable System Preferences -> Shortcuts -> Mission Control -> Move left a space

Just hit the spacebar. (It's not necessary to use tab if the button you desire pressed is already outlined.) This also works with highlighted checkboxes.

This issue appears to have disappeared in El Capitan.

Would it boot with the old (original) hard drive? If so, you need to either clone the HDD to the SSD via Disk Utility (hold Cmd+R at boot), or install OS X anew on the SSD. You can use DiskMaker X to prep a USB installer, or use a OS X install DVD, assuming you can find one and the MacBook has an optical drive (fairly sure a '10 model does). Just sounds ...

It will work if you connect an external keyboard via USB. PS: If you boot the macbook, hold down the option (alt) button to get the boot menu and install Mac OS X.

After adding desired input sources as user63024 said, you need to check the Shortcuts tab (in my case System Preferences > Language & Region > Keyboard Preferences > Shortcuts) to check whether all your input sources are checked. Then you can see the shortcuts to switch between them. And of course you can change them if you want. But remember, if you ...

Apparently these are called scissor clips and there are various types, identified as type A, B, C etc. It's important you identify the type you need. To do this, use this handy reference Full Product Page of Scissor Clips I have a Unibody MacBook Pro early 2011, which is actually the first item on that page. What isn't immediately obvious is that if you ...

I tried all those options, but they're too complex and unreliable or really expensive. So i ended up writing my own solution (open-source and free). iCanHazShortcut It can't do much right now, but that's a start. Feel free to contribute by adding feature requests and suggestions.

I am not sure I understand your problem. The functionality is there and works as expected. Go to System Preferences / Keyboard / Shortcuts / Keyboard and choose whatever key combination you want for switching windows in Move focus to next window setting, say Alt+Tab. This will switch application windows forward and Shift+Alt+Tab will switch application ...

You can use Karabiner with a private.xml such as the following: <?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <item> <name>Changing forward slash key with return key</name> <identifier>private.slashreturn</identifier> <autogen> __KeyToKey__ KeyCode::SLASH, KeyCode::RETURN </autogen> &...

Karabiner has options that let you use the Function keys (with or without ‘fn’) on external non-Apple keyboards just like the special function keys on Apple keyboards. This means pressing F11 and F12 (‘fn’ depends on your options shown in the screenshot) to decrease and increase volume. The HUD shows as usual, and F10 works for mute too. I am yet to see ...

USB pinouts are universal. So, once you have the IEEE standard used, you should be able to resolder a new connector with no problem. In this case, the USB connector used on the Apple Keyboard is a USB v1.1 connector. I have included the pinouts for USB 1.1/2.0 below for reference. Short of that, I am sure you could use the continuity function on a ...

Making the user input a tone used to be the default in OS X, but not since at least OS X 10.8. Now it continues to guess your characters as you keep typing, and since it's pretty good at guessing, I guess tone selection was deemed an unnecessary step. There may be some way you can fiddle with com.apple.inputmethod.SCIM.plist or com.apple.inputmethod.TCIM....

You can use 3rd party input method named "RIME". You can download RIME by goto: http://rime.im/ Unzip downloaded file and run Installation.

The trick, really, is to avoid common key-commands - which is why the article you refer to uses Ctrl ⌃ Opt ⌥ L , as no OS X command would normally use only Ctrl ⌃ & Opt ⌥ - they would always add Cmd ⌘ too, leaving you free to use Ctrl ⌃ Opt ⌥ for anything you like. If you insist on using Cmd ⌘ Ctrl ⌃ L then you would have to add, ...

It seems that the "equivalent" functionality is based on the starting characters and lots of typing as explained in Navigating to options in context menus's answers - in that question you can see that some menu items would be diabolically hard to select, involving typing whole words to disambiguate 2 items. It seems that the application can specify priority,...

This appears to have been fixed in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, as the banner can be accepted using ↩. Furthermore, the window appears fully on-screen in my scenario, rendering the need for a keyboard-only approach unnecessary for my use case. So as far as I can tell, it is impossible to accept the policy banner without using the mouse in OS X 10.10 ...
