I want to remap the command with the control in Blender application. I've tried using Karabiner and when I open it these are the default Blender options:

enter image description here

I wonder how I can add the command/control switch as well?

I've tried doing it by updating the private.xml file as shown below:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
    <item>
        <name>For Applications</name>
            <item>
                <name>Enable at only Blender</name>
                <identifier>private.swap_command_and_control</identifier>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::COMMAND_L, KeyCode::CONTROL_L</autogen>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::CONTROL_L, KeyCode::COMMAND_L</autogen>
            </item>
    </item>
</root>

But it's wrong as shown here: enter image description here

I want it to be appearing under the blender application item as shown below. Any advice please?

Your private.xml is missing the only key and would swap the keys system-wide. Additionally you got the naming of the item wrong.

Here is a working private.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
    <item>
        <name>Enable at only Blender - custom</name>
            <item>
                <name>Swap Command and Control</name>
                <identifier>private.swap_command_and_control</identifier>
                <only>BLENDER</only>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::COMMAND_L, KeyCode::CONTROL_L</autogen>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::CONTROL_L, KeyCode::COMMAND_L</autogen>
            </item>
    </item>
</root>

or if you want the "For applications" to appear in the private section:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
    <item>
        <name>For Applications</name>
        <item>
        <name>Enable at only Blender - custom</name>
            <item>
                <name>Swap Command and Control</name>
                <identifier>private.swap_command_and_control</identifier>
                <only>BLENDER</only>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::COMMAND_L, KeyCode::CONTROL_L</autogen>
                <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::CONTROL_L, KeyCode::COMMAND_L</autogen>
            </item>
        </item>
    </item>
</root>

If you want the key mod to appear in the non-private part "For applications" you have to add it (the most inner item key including <item> and </item>) to the file: /Applications/Karabiner.app/Contents/Resources/include/checkbox/apps/blender.xml.

Any Karabiner update/upgrade will remove/overwrite your mod probably.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>

  <item>
    <name>Enable at only Blender</name>

    <item>
      <name>FlipScrollWheel</name>
      <item>
        <name>Flip Horizontal and Vertical ScrollWheel at Blender</name>
        <identifier>remap.app_Blender_flipscrollwheel</identifier>
        <only>BLENDER</only>
        <autogen>
          __FlipScrollWheel__
          Option::FLIPSCROLLWHEEL_HORIZONTAL,
          Option::FLIPSCROLLWHEEL_VERTICAL,
        </autogen>
      </item>
      <item>
        <name>Flip Horizontal ScrollWheel at Blender</name>
        <identifier>remap.app_Blender_flipscrollwheel_horizontal</identifier>
        <only>BLENDER</only>
        <autogen>
          __FlipScrollWheel__
          Option::FLIPSCROLLWHEEL_HORIZONTAL,
        </autogen>
      </item>
      <item>
        <name>Flip Vertical ScrollWheel at Blender</name>
        <identifier>remap.app_Blender_flipscrollwheel_vertical</identifier>
        <only>BLENDER</only>
        <autogen>
          __FlipScrollWheel__
          Option::FLIPSCROLLWHEEL_VERTICAL,
        </autogen>
      </item>
    </item>
    <item>
      <name>Keys</name>
      <item>
        <name>Swap Command and Control at Blender</name>
        <identifier>private.swap_command_and_control</identifier>
        <only>BLENDER</only>
        <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::COMMAND_L, KeyCode::CONTROL_L</autogen>
        <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::CONTROL_L, KeyCode::COMMAND_L</autogen>
      </item>

    </item>

  </item>

</root>

with the result:

  • Thanks for your answer. Will this create it under the blender item? I've updated my question to clarify what I want if you could please check. – Tak Jan 16 '17 at 10:36
  • @Tak No of course not. The private.xml is a key mod on a per user base and resides somewhere in your user folder. But I will update my answer to meet your needs... – klanomath Jan 16 '17 at 10:39
