Mapping Fn+delete in macOS Sierra


 Backspace and delete

Mac and Windows keyboards Among other things, Mac keyboards have the Windows BackSpace key as the delete key, and there is no Windows delete key to delete the character to the right of the cursor. On the MacBook, you have to press Fn+delete to delete the character to the right of the cursor, perhaps to reduce even one key.

On Windows keyboards, the delete key and the backspace key are located close to the arrow keys, which is convenient. In my case, I often use the arrow keys and the delete key rather than the backspace key.

So, in my case, the right option key on the MacBook keyboard is mapped to the key to delete the character on the right side of the cursor and used.

Mapping the right option key on the MacBook to the Fn+delete key

DoubleCommand I was able to do it, but it doesn't work on the latest Mac OS and it doesn't update.

Up to Mac OS X 10.11 CarbineI was using , but it doesn't work on macOS Sierra yet. 홈페이지is being checked frequently and is still under development.

Because the delete button is often used when typing on a MacBook BetterTouchTool I was looking for a way to do it using .

BetterTouchTool does not provide a function to map the right option button to Fn+delete, but I tried using the key sequence function and it worked!

Here's how.

1. BetterTouchTool Downloadable and install it

 

2. Press 'Change Key Sequence' in Global as shown in the screen below.

 

3. On the screen that appears, press 'Start Recording', press the right option key you want to map to, and then press 'Stop Recording'. Then, as shown in the figure below, turn off the required check of Key UP. If the check is not turned off, event 2 occurs when the key is pressed, when it is pressed and when it is released.

 

4. After closing the window, click 'Trigger Other Keyboard Shortcut' below, and press the delete key while holding down the function key.

 

This way, pressing the right option key will have the effect of pressing the fn+delete keys, which will delete the character to the right of the cursor.

In Mac, the backspace key to delete the character to the left of the cursor is used as the delete key, and when deleting the right side of the cursor, press the delete key while holding down the function key. I don't know if this is because people grow up and erase the letters on the left rather than on the right. In my case, it moves with the arrow keys, and it seems to have become a habit to delete the right character rather than the left, so I map the keys to delete the right character of the cursor near the keyboard. Fortunately, there is a function or application that maps the keys on the keyboard.
