Provide an interface enabling user to configure modifier keys

Presently NoMachine remaps the keyboard modifiers to emulate the remote desktop keyboard, but users may need their own arbitrary keyboard mapping.

The NoMachine User Interface should provide a way to redefine modifier keys (specifically: Control, Alt, Command, Windows).

In the "Input" menu panel, under section "Keyboard and mouse", a button with caption "Modifier Keys" can make a pop up window appear.

This window can have a list box of alternate definitions near each modifier key.

Modifier names will depend on the operative system in use:

  • OS X: Control, Option, Command
  • Linux: Ctrl, Alt, Super
  • Windows: Ctrl, Alt, Win
