Open Apple/Cmd on Newton Keyboard


Recommended Posts

I just got one off eBay and hopefully will soon be getting a 'free' dongle, because for the moment I can only key it up on my 120.  I did just take a sec to look around the keys config, though... what could open apple/command (there's actually no command symbol though) possibly be used for?  Like does Cmd-Q return you to extras...?  [that's not a real hypothesis btw - actually there is quitting with some stuff; so maybe Cmd-Q/W do work]  There's no real saving or opening...  I'm honestly just curious.

The possible keyboard commands vary by application (i.e., you have different options in Newton Works than in the Calendar).

 

The simple solution is to hold down the command / Apple key for a few seconds – you should then see a popup list of all the available keyboard combinations for the active application.

I don't have any installed packages on my 120, but I couldn't get the menu to pop up on stock applications.  I'm still waiting for a dongle, I hope.

 

I would have posted pics, but that test may have pushed my 120 over the edge.  It's had minor electrical issues before but this time looks really bad.  We'll see what a few days without batteries and with the switched depressed does.

 

Is the keyboard hotpluggable?  I assume no since it didn't recognize until I turned the 120 off and back on.  That's definitely not what caused the issues; just curious.
