I am using a Mac Book and IMac and on occasions when working remotely on Windows based VBA applications I need to send a Ctrl-Break.
On a standard Mac keyboard (F1 to F12 keys) this is simply not available. The following gleaned from the Web DO NOT work:-
Cntrl + . (full stop)
Cntrl + End
Cntrl + Escape
Cntrl + C
Cntrl + Shit and the above
Command and the above
What DOES work on my IMac is plugging in an extended Apple keyboard, the one with the numeric keypad with function keys that go up to F19 and have discovered that F14 does the job and sends whatever the esc code is to make the remote code break when required.
Whilst that is great whilst working at my desk, when on the road with my nice new Mac Book Pro, having to plug in an extended Apple keyboard is not ideal!
I have tried using the Windows OSK which depending on which version of Windows the remote PC has will sometimes have a break key however sometimes it does not and if it aint there the is no way of making the dam thing appear.
I have tried to find both Windows and Mac OSK software which will either offer me an F14 key on the Mac Book or a working 'Break' key on the remote PC, I can find neither.
Ideally I would simply like to emulate the F14 key available on the extended Apple keyboard from a standard Apple keyboard which does not have an F14 key.
So if anyone out there can help I would be SO grateful! Please keep in mind if you can assist that my Mac/OS X skill set is very much under development so clear step by step instructions would be appreciated.
