The Darwin64 releases work great on a MacBook Pro, however there are some keyboard mapping issues. Keys which have normal significance to Xic, such as Home, Page Up and Page Down, and the numeric keypad plus and minus keys are nowhere to be found. Yet, all functionality is present, but maps to alternative key combinations. One can run the Key Map command in the Attributes Menu if another mapping is needed.
The table below describes the default mapping.
|MacBook Pro||Normal keyboard|
The key labeled ``Delete'' actually sends a backspace character.
Press the fn key with Delete to get a real delete character.
Press the fn key with the left arrow for the center-full-view function in Xic.
Press the fn key with up arrow to get a page up code, used in Xic for displaying DRC errors.
Press the fn key with down arrow to get a page down code, used in Xic for displaying DRC errors.
|These mappings are set in Apple releases only.|
Press the fn key with Enter to get the numeric keypad enter code. This is mapped to the zoom-in action, as for Numeric Plus.
Press the fn key with the right arrow to get the end key code. This is mapped to the zoom-out action, as for Numeric Minus.
Note that if you use a ``normal'' keyboard with your Apple computer, the two new mappings will be in addition to the normmal mappings.
The ``secondary press'' mentioned in Apple documents is button 3 (the right mouse button on a three-button mouse). You should probably change the track-pad settings in the Preferences to enable this. There is no button 2 (middle mouse button). You'll have to live without it, or get a three-button pointing device.
