Just a couple of things I find myself longing for in this wonderful VNC viewer (if they already exist, how do I do them):
- Full screen mode, toggled with a hot key. Not just zoom which almost gets there but leaves the local menu bar. It would be nice if a 1024x768 setting on the remote screen could be viewed on a 1024x768 laptop without needing to scroll. I really like the scale-to-fit, but I find my self switching back and forth between full-size and scaled. I want to see the whole screen sometimes, but when I do, I can’t read some of the altered text.
2a. A hot key that forces the next key combo to be sent as-is to the remote machine, so that anything can be sent without interpretation by the local machine, when needed. Mostly useful for sending command or option combos that are now acted on by the local machine, but don’t have special menu entries for sending them across the pond.
2b. A key .config file where any key or key combination on the local machine can be preset as to which side should handle it. An escape key could then reverse the .config setting if needed.
- When the remote machine is another mac, scale-to-fit works well. Even though text may be reduced in size, it is still readable. But with Windows, scale-to-fit completely garbles the text so that it is unreadable. Is there a way to fix it? Without actually modifying setting on the PC?
Thanks for listening,
