#38 Fullscreen Key sequence doesn't work in OS X 10.3 (Panther)

Interface (96)

I installed Panther this weekend on my Powerbook, and
discovered that the keystroke shortcut for
the "Fullscreen" command doesn't work anymore. This is
a problem, because once you've entered full screen
mode, there's no way out other than to kill cotvnc!

    My first guess is that Panther added a shortcut that is the same as
    ours, and theirs is getting called. I'll look into it.

    yeah, I saw this last week. I'll put together a new build
    ASAP that uses a more amenable keystroke.

    It'll probably take about two weeks, though, since I'm tied
    up with paying work. It's an easy fix if anyone would care
    to tackle it in CVS.

    Fixed for U.S. keyboards in CVS. The existing problem with non-
    US keyboards being unable to use the existing shortcut is

    Why don't go this way:
    Make a customizable modifier key combo (people will likely choose ctrl+opt+cmd).
    With this key combo have common things like H for hide, W for close, Q for quit, *and* F for fullscreen work.

    Whoops, shouldn't have closed this since the fix is still in CVS. Re-

    I'm running Panther (10.3.4) and CVNC 1.3.6.

    The full-screen key sequence does not work for me, even though I am
    using U.S. keyboard layout on a PB12" bought at my local Apple Store in

    I tried selecting Full Screen mode from the menubar, and it seemed to
    work fine. CVNC quit some time after I tried to exit Full Screen mode
    with cmd-opt-ctrl-`. Oddly enough, I received no error message in the
    Finder indicating the program had crashed.

    No longer an issue in Chicken 2.0b1. Closing.
