I'm having exactly the same problem you describe, keyboard doesn't register in left USB but everything else does? I'm on MacBook pro retina purchased 2015 Yosemite OS X. Did you ever find a solution? Thanks.

After letting it siting for a couple of weeks the computer started working normal again. So I'd say that in cases like that it would be a good idea to let the computer off as long as possible and at least 72h. (The computer wasn't actually mine and the guy turned it on after 3 or 4 hours).

For whatever reason, the display port to DVI adapters draw power as well but don't transmit enough power to hook up a Mac keyboard (which is also a hub) but will allow a single low power USB device. What I ended up doing was hook up the MacAlly AC powered hub to the displayport to DVI adapters. Without the keyboards plugged into the dp->DVI adapters the ...

You can look at the USB device tree using the System Information application, launched either from the "System Report" button in the "About this Mac" dialog, or by looking in /Applications/Utilities. Select usb from the sidebar and it will display the device tree. See if you get different information when you reconfigure your devices. Also look in the ...

That is the Escape (esc / ⎋) key. You can find more explanations for Mac Keyboard Symbols here. The click with option/alt/⌥ function exists to hide the entire sidebar. The sidebar can contain multiple panes, such as the Favorites pane. Without holding option/alt/⌥, it will hide only the Project pane and expand any other pane in the sidebar (if none, it ...

With the iPads, you can hold two fingers on the keyboard and move the cursor around by moving your two fingers around. Additionally, you can double tap you fingers on the keyboard and it will select current word. If you double tap but keep your fingers down on the screen on the second tap, you can use this to select text by cursor position. On the iPhone ...

You can swipe with two fingers on the keyboard to move the cursor around. It's even easier to use than arrow keys.

The latest version of iterm2 (I'm using Build 2.9.20150812-nightly) has this feature, but in order for it to work with multiple lines you have to enable shell integration as described at https://gitlab.com/gnachman/iterm2/issues/3638. To install the latest iTerm, I use brew and execute the following: brew tap caskroom/versions && brew cask install ...

I had the same problem and FINALLY found a workable solution. Run this in your terminal. After this you just need to manually connect to your bluetooth audio system. sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist DontPageAudioDevices 1

To make this work you have to use a third party tool: Karabiner. I propose to use one of the option keys though: usually one of both is rarely used and you can use M as normal key. Download, install and open Karabiner Open in the menulet Karabiner -> Preferences Enter "Space" Enable the chosen keycode and close the window.

I have used KeyRemap4MacBook with success before. (It has been renamed to Karabiner since) http://lifehacker.com/5882684/the-best-keyboard-remapper-for-mac-os-x This article gives a bit of an overview on it. The only downside is that it doesn't allow you to remap a key through the interface, you will have to do that through editing an XML file but it isn't ...

The best thing I've come up with so far is to use Right-Alt as backspace. Not quite as good, but it gets the job done.

I have the exact same problem, - this happened AFTER I had the battery replaced in the Apple Store. Went back to them, but they insisted they didn't touch the keyboard during that operation, but that I could book a Genious appointment to have the keyboard repaired/replaced. Maybe the old battery had been pushing against something, - or maybe the new one is ...

Besides using the UK-English keyboard layout get some replacement stickers and stick them carefully on your Spanish keyboard.

If you use the bluetooth menu item, disconnect from any devices that you don't want to show the message. You could also automate that UI control with Automator. Open that and then make an automation action that uses the "Watch Me Do" tool to record the things you select. That way you could assign a keyboard shortcut to have both devices disconnect and ...

The zoom function on a Mac is usually Ctrl + Scroll, and if this isn't enabled, you can go to Accessibility > Zoom > Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom. There's currently no keyboard shortcut for this functionality. Hope that helps!

I realise that you probablyuse the command shortcuts for increased speed, but it may be helpful to you (and others) to consider the slightly longer method of holding down a character until the "pop up" choice list appears. For example, holding down c or e on my (British English) system yields: This has the added benefit that the list can be customised ...

The standard US keyboard layout always yields a § if alt6 is pressed. To get your desired results enable the US extended (or ABC Extended in OS X 10.11) keyboard layout: alt6 -> ˆ alt6+e -> ê altc+c -> ç

Go to system preferences/keyboard/input sources and make sure that only the item called "US International PC" is on the list, or the item called "ABC Extended" (known as "US Extended" prior to OS X 10.11). (The standard US layout does not use Option 6 for circumflex, it uses Option i. The US International PC layout uses Shift 6, while ABC Extended uses ...

OS X includes an British keyboard layout that you can switch to under Settings > Keyboard > Input Sources. If you hit the + button and search for British it'll come up. That'll give you Apple's version of a British keyboard layout. If you'd like British to match a PC's keyboard, there's a second Apple mapping named British - PC. This'll put the @ and ...

Adobe apps have their own Keyboard Shortcuts setup, in the Edit menu. I don't have InDesign, only Photoshop, but this is what it looks like in there… It's in Layer > Arrange [you need to do a lot of scrolling to get there] After comments… It may not be possible to assign a single-key shortcut in Adobe, it may always need to include Cmd ⌘ however, ...

The most correct character for the Hawaiian ʻokina is U+02BB, Modifier Letter Turned Comma. It is a letter in its own right rather than punctuation. Using that would hopefully avoid problems that can arise when a punctuation symbol like U+2018 Left Single Quotation Mark is used instead. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ʻOkina

It's a little clunky, but you could add a correction from "Hawai‘i" to "Hawai’i" in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text

You get all the currency symbols except the Baht for free on the US keyboard. Press and hold the $ symbol and you'll see all the alternates. To get the Baht symbol - add the thai keyboard and the Baht symbol will be added to the US keyboard. You don't need to switch to that keyboard - just add it. Similarly, you can use this answer to make shortcuts if you ...

Yes, iOS allows key repeat for Bluetooth keyboards, and you can even change the key repeat rate as follows (quoting LucaMarconato): If you go in Settings->General->Accessibility->Keyboard->Key Repeat you can set the Key Repeat Interval to 0,03 seconds (the minumum allowed).

Open TextEdit Preferences (⌘,) and uncheck Smart dashes. You will need to close and re-open your documents for the change to take effect.

In El Capitan the US Extended keyboard was renamed to ABC Extended.

The keyboard in your Mac may need to be replaced, but you could try just disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard using a guide from iFixit for repairing polyurethane MacBooks. Select your model from the list and then select keyboard replacement. I've repaired a slightly older MacBook than a 2010 for one of customers before, and it wasn't all that ...

If you have the Apple Keyboard 2 which has the Lightning port on the back of the keyboard, all you need to do is connect the USB -> Lightning cord to the computer and it will just like a normal wired keyboard. Refer to: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201178

The problem was an extra keyboard that I had enabled: Unicode Hex Input. I had definitely forgotten about it. I would do something (not sure what, don't really care) to switch to this keyboard and when this keyboard is active the Option-Enter does not work. I removed this keyboard from my list of Input Sources: System Preferences -> Keyboard, Input Sources ...

If your purpose is to type Latin script pinyin, then ABC Extended is the right keyboard. Chinese Pinyin input is only for Chinese script.

Press the esc key to navigate out of the document edit/select mode. The Left/Right arrow keys should then work again the same as before.

In the first example below Option-L/R arrow does the same after adjusting the keycodes as Control-L/R arrow. The previous behavior Option-L/R arrow (e.g opening/closing a folder in list view) is lost. If you want a different behavior you have to modify/precise your answer. To make this work you have to use a third party tool: Karabiner. Download, ...

My knowledge of keyboard bindings is that it's difficult to do without installing third party applications. With that said, Karabiner (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook) provides a great way of customizing bindings easily, and should be able to do what you want.

This kind of applies to all hardware, not just apple computers. I did a search for Anker USB Hub. None of the results showed a powered USB Hub. They all relied on the USB Bus for power. The average USB port has about 500 mA available. (900 mA in USB3.0) USB Keyboard uses between 50 mA and 100 mA. The USB hub itself also needs power, more if it's got all ...

I was also having this problem on mavericks (osx 10.9.5). Here's how I solved it: In Finder, click Go->Go to Folder... Type: '~/Library/Preferences/' and click Go. Open the file 'com.apple.dock.plist' using a text editor. Edit the bottom line to: 'workspaces-auto-swoosh = ":true";'. Restart. Cheers!

There is a section dedicated to this under System Preferences → Keyboard: Open Modifier Keys… and reassign your modifier keys from here: These settings are specific to each external keyboard you have connected and will "stick” between reboots, as well as whenever you unplug an external keyboard and plug back it in.

I use Karabiner for my external KB, I think it's the only utility currently available but Google is your friend. As to the second question - so far as I know, only if you can figure out a way to run Karabiner when the external KB is attached but not otherwise. HTH.

To make this work you have to use a third party tool: Karabiner. I have a slightly different proposal for the å though: In the example below holding the right option key enables the German keyboard layout. Just hold the right option key and type ' to get ä and ; to get ö. Releasing the right option key switches the layout back to en_US. To get å simply ...
