I am typing some BASIC listings STOP is binded to F8 but I am not able to stop the execution of the BASIC programs as on a real MSX with CTRL + STOP in openMSX L-CTRL+F8. Any advise? Thanks!

I switched to my Windows 10 partition on my mac and I have tried the same with openMSX and with Windows 10 it does what is supposed to do a real MSX. Any help with macOS? Thanks in advance! Tongue

Some environments have CTRL+F[n] globally bound. For example KDE uses CTRL+F[n] to switch to the n-th virtual desktop. Those key-combinations are intercepted globally and thus applications like openMSX never even see these key presses. In KDE I 'fixed' this by removing the global CTRL+F8 binding.

I'm not familiar with macOS, so I don't know if the above makes sense for macOS.

You are right. ctrl + F8 in my version of macOS HighSierra is binded to somethig about centering the menu status. I have disabled it and with the combination of fn + ctrl + f8 it does what is suposed to do! Thanks wouter_! Smile2

Try Ctrl-Shift-F8 on the Mac. It should work.

I have an iMac late 2009 with a small keyboard. With my keyboard the combination has to be the fn key + ctrl + the f8 key.

Thaks for you comment Smile
