interesting to me that I can't use my laptop keyboard and my external keyboard in conjunction. like if I press shift on my external keyboard, and a letter on my laptop keyboard, I get lowercase
@tripofmice you can tho. command/control + key will work. shift + letter is handled on the keyboard side I believe
@bcj command+key doesn't seem to work either
@tripofmice hmm. I'm using two apple keyboards and maybe that's the difference? just testing keyboards and command/option/function work cross keyboard either way
@tripofmice oh, wait. it's possible karabiner is enabling this. one moment
@bcj oh two external keyboard? hm. I'm using an apple external keyboard and built in one
@tripofmice I'm using the same setup as you. the answer is that karabiner-elements, the key rebinding program I use is what is enabling this, not macos
@tripofmice hmm. I would have assumed function worked the same way as shfit but it can be used across (apple) keyboards. wild
Gah how are you ever going to type with four hands then???
@tripofmice if you press shift on both keyboards the letters should be REALLY LOUD
