FR - Left/Right Alt Key option


I use the Emacs option to Use ALT as meta key for Bash command line edits, I use "Alt + ." everyday.

I'd like to submit a Feature Request to have an option for Left Alt or Right Alt to still be used for SecureCRT, mainly for the Alt+R Connect Bar.

Thanks in advance...

Hi aperkins,

I have captured a feature request on your behalf to use a different accelerator key when the "Use Alt as meta key" setting is enabled.

We will be sure to notify you here if this functionality becomes available in a future release.

If you prefer direct notification, please send an email to support@vandyke.com, with "*Feature Request, Forum Thread #14359*" as the subject.

In the meantime, you can map a different keyboard combination or button to change focus to the connect bar. Please refer to the following example, in which I have mapped "Ctrl+J" to change focus to the Connect Bar:
Are you able to map a different key combination to change focus to the Connect Bar provided this information?
