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
  • "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.
