I have recently got a Mac mini to do IPhone Dev on (like many others) and I am using the excellent Synergy to share one keyboard and mouse with 2 machines and 2 monitors. Everything is lovely and it works a treat.

I got used to using the mac, and the alt key works like command button on the mac however one thing I cant figure out is the End key. I use this a lot on windows when wanting to jump to the end of a line of text, however if I press it over synergy on my mac it jumps to the end of the page.

Anyone know the key combination I need to get what I want?

Has nothing to do with programming im afraid. Try superuser.com –  Henri Oct 24 '09 at 18:12
    
has everything to do with programming Henri, the only reason I'm using a mac is for iphone dev - I dont think many people on superuser will even know what synergy is - I now have the answer after 2 minutes, I think it would have taken a whole heap longer on superuser.com. Hopefully anyone who likes this question will upvote. –  Toby Allen Oct 24 '09 at 18:17
    
"I dont think many people on superuser will even know what synergy is" -- I think you're wrong :-) –  Chris_K Oct 24 '09 at 20:13

Does cmd-right do what you want? It may be app-specific.

Cmd-Right, is often correct.... Traditionally End on the mac, means end of the field, which for a text box is the end of the end text... Down Arrow may also work with single line text field. –  Benjamin Schollnick Oct 24 '09 at 21:51
    
Hi Benjamin, you should add that as an answer rather than just as a comment. Thanks for the extra info. - Toby –  Toby Allen Oct 29 '09 at 1:12

Fn-right arrow acts equivalently to "End".

Command+Right for end, Command+Left for home. Sometimes control+A is home, and control+E is end.

This question has inspired a more specific one here.

If you read this you might find that the best thing for you to do is to install KeyFixer and the other hints for specific programs mentioned in that answer.
