ShareMouse issue with keyboard on MAC and Windows

Posted on

QUESTION :

I’m using ShareMouse to share my mouse and keyboard across iMac and Windows PC, however i have them connected to the Windows PC because the keyboard doesn’t seem to work when plugged to the iMac.

The only problem runnig this setup is that my Keyboard layout is QWERTY Portugal and the <> characters on the iMac go to an oddly posision, this seems to be a small problem but i develop on XML on the iMac and gets frustrating after some time, is there anything that can be done to help correct the keys?

Ilustration

ANSWER :

I’m not absolutely certain where you expect them to be… Portuguese on a Mac has the <> keys left of the Z key, but Brasilian has them on Shifted comma & period (right of M), which is the more standard international configuration.

Maybe try setting the Mac’s Keyboard Layout to Brasilian rather than Portuguese – that will move the < > keys above , & . rather than left of Z.

It will also, incidentally, set @ and ” back to where an English International Mac user would expect them.
