Hi there!

I would love being able to use special character (command) shortcuts on iOS via Type2Phone.

Shortcuts I'm referring to:

cmd + H
cmd + tab

all the shortcuts that interfere with Mac shortcuts and that prevents Type2Phone from delivering them to iOS.

I found an old 2011 post about this too:

Any update/trick to get this working?

Thanks
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

You should be able to overide some of the default Mac keyboard shortcuts by using System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts to re-aassign them to items in the Type2Phone Special menu.

While I managed to change the shortcut for Type2Phone "hide" func, i.e. cmd + H, to something else and hence managed to get it being passed to the iOS device, I still cannot work around system shortcuts like cmd + tab. Any idea?

Thanks!
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Some OS X shortcuts are handled before they ever reach the current application. That’s the case for command-Tab.

I recommend you set yourself a custom shortcut for the Type2Phone Special menu item used to switch applications. You will however not be able to press and hold this shortcut. Each press will invoke the menu item only once.
 
BTW, I find the command-Tab shortcut to be very useful to quickly switch between the Mac and iPhone. I command-Tab out of Type2Phone to return to my Mac. When I need to type on iPhone, I switch back to Type2Phone and start typing while Type2Phone takes care of reconnecting to iPhone.

Best,
