Mac Keyboard Enter Key

Post by w0lt »

I can't seem to get the "Enter" key next to the number pads to work correctly when logging into my Raspberry Pi. Is there any trick to this? Seems to work fine using the "Return" key. Puzzled..

Hi,

the NumPad Enter key sends a different ASCII code than the RETURN key on the main keyboard. You can change the behavior of the NumPad Enter key by simultaneously pressing either ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL (or even a combination of them) and the NumPad Enter key. This will let you send different types of enter key emulations, such as CR, LF, CR+LF.
You can also change the behavior of the NumPad enter key via the settings, in the "Terminal Options": https://freeware.the-meiers.org/CoolTermHelp/#Terminal

I hope this helps.

I just discovered a bug in the code that prevents the selected NumPad Enter emulation from working properly. This will be fixed in the next release.
Meanwhile, use the following modifier keys to change the behavior of the NumPad Enter key:

Code: Select all

Key Combination  |  Line Ending
-----------------|-------------
SHIFT+ENTER    	 | CR
ALT+ENTER        | LF
SHIFT+ALT+ENTER	 | CR+LF

Well, what do you know! I found another bug that basically makes this feature non-functional on Linux systems, including the Raspberry Pi.

I fixed it, and the fix will be included in the next release.
