Is there a way to capture Ctrl-LeftArrow / RightArrow on macOS?


I use Ctrl-Left Arrow and Ctrl-Right Arrow frequently to navigate text in an IDE on a remote computer running Linux. macOS interprets this as switching spaces, rather than forwarding the keystrokes to TeamViewer. "Send key combinations" is checked off already.

    I learned that this is just a setting on the mac taking precedent.

    Go to: Mac - System Settings - Keyboard - Keyboard Shortcuts... - Mission Control - Mission Control

    "Move left a space" and "Move right a space" both need to be unchecked.

    After these shortcuts are disabled the command makes it through to the remote PC. Fixes Ctrl + left and right as well as Ctrl + Shift + left and right.
