AW: Break in Omnis code under Windows from my Mac

Hi Peter,

Open the on-screen keyboard on your windows machine, minimize it, and when you need to use the Pause key, use the windows on screen keyboard. I contacted TeamViewer support regarding the same problem, and they told me this is currently not implemented and have put his on their enhancement request list. Probably the Remote Desktop is suffering from the same issue.

I would be very grateful if anyone could tell me I am wrong and there is a solution to this problem that does not require me to use the on-screen keyboard, but this is a useable workaround.

Betreff: Break in Omnis code under Windows from my Mac

Hello All,

I am working from a Mac through a remote desktop of a windows computer, using Omnis 5.1 (on that windows PC) I want to break in on the code, when it is in a loop.
I know that on the mac I can use 'Cmd-Option-Backspace'

I worked on a windows PC before with a windows key-board and could use the key 'Break/Pause'

I have tried to connect a windows keyboard to my Mac and use the 'Break/Pause' key, when I am connected with the Remote Desktop of the windows PC running Omnis.
But that doesn't work.

Is there a way for me to break into Omnis code from my mac, into Omnis that is running on my Remote Windows Desktop?
