That is using Remote Desktop Version 8.0.35 (Build 27221) and the Bete Version 8.2.26. I have not upgraded to Sierra yet. The Bete does have the ability to remap Ctl X,V & C but I would also like to be able to add Cmd A & W.
Is there any diagnostics I can send from KM that would help? I have been using the debugger to step through the actions. Shift and Control just don’t get sent.
Can you post the Macro (image and file) that you are using?
I use the KM Action “Type a Keystroke” all the time with the modifier keys, including “CTRL”. So I don’t know why it would not work for you, unless the app you are using the macro with is eating these keystrokes.
@msavory , did you ever solve this challenge? I am using KM to control Microsoft Remote Desktop with a Windows 10 machine on the other end. Same challenge, I send Ctrl + E and Remote Desktop only receives E.
I too encountered the same issue trying to send keys to Microsoft Remote Desktop: all modifier keys were being stripped, so I was only getting lowercase printable characters. I tried the AppleScript method, but that too did not work for me on macOS 10.15.6. Finally, I was able to achieve what I wanted by using yet another tool: hammerspoon. Doing so feels very low-level since one has to write Lua code to perform individual key down/up sequences (including modifiers) so that RDP will pass it along unmolested. The is a lot of functionality available but IMO it takes a lot of effort to get what KM can deliver -- I use palettes a lot for instance. Good luck!
