In response to my recent keyboard posts, Alpha Chen posed a really good question:
@zacbir Re: http://t.co/AmXWBktHHe Why not remap caps lock to control directly in the firmware instead of doing it in OS X?— Alpha Chen (@kejadlen) January 18, 2015
The answer to which is: *headslap* Of course!
I’ve modified my firmware again to map the key to LCTL, and now the keyboard converter will always send Control when that key is pressed, regardless of OS settings. In fact, it’ll send Control regardless of OS.
Thanks for the dose of obvious, Alpha Chen!
