In order to avoid having to log out and back in continually under the default Mac VNC protocols, i have been advised by an app vendor to use the Vine VNC system instead. Apparently once connected using Vine VNC, I can switch between apps on the Mac and on the iPad 3 or iPhone 4, and remain connected with the keyboard shortcuts set up in Custom KeyPad app for example, maintaining functionality.
For some reason however, it appears that the cmd key will not be recognised as a shortcut, and the alt key must be used in its place.
Obviously this makes combinations like cmd+alt+[key] impossible, therefore requiring the manual reassignment of hundreds of keybindings.
First I would like to know why such a frequently used shortcut key as ‘cmd’ was disabled in the first place, and secondly, whether there are plans afoot to enable it in a (hopefully near) future release of the Vine VNC system.
