After almost 40 years of using Windows and various UNIX flavors, I finally landed a job in which my software development tool is a MacBook Pro.
I am very impressed by the superb craftmanship of this wonder, but finger habits are hard to change...
I did find the following well known
Command key swap:
- From the Apple menu, select System Preferences.
- Select Keyboard.
- Click the Modifier Keys… button.
- From the Command Key menu, select Control.
- From the Control Key menu, select Command.
- Click OK.
- Close the System Preferences.
But this doesn't go far enough. When trying to type ~ (middle tilde, as in "home directory" in zsh/bash), I have to type the upper left tilde key + space. Otherwise I get an upper tilde, which is not recognized by zsh/bash as the "home directory".
A similar issue exists with various types of quotation marks (single and double). The MacBook keyboard slows me down considerably.
Is there a well known tool or set of translations via the Mac's keyboard settings that can let me configure my Mac's keyboard behave exactly like in Windows?
