Add better keyboard support for mac.

Postby Kiaulen » Wed Sep 18, 2013 6:16 pm

I've used DBeaver for a while now, and there are a lot of things that I really like about it, especially over SQuirreL.

On my windows machine, the home/end keys work perfectly. However, using my microsoft keyboard plugged into my mac, the home/end keys have stopped working. I instead have to use command left and command right.

I know this isn't a system wide thing, as my text editor (sublime text 3) supports the home/end keys on my mac.

It's a small thing, but if I save 1 second here and there, I'm way more productive overall.

Hello,

it is a standard problem for all Eclipse based (and not only) applications. Eclipse redefines standard keybinding in Mac style. If you don't like this idea you may redefine keybindings in preferences (main menu Window -> Preferences -> Interface -> Keys).
You need to redefine "Line End" and "Line Start" commands.
