Timbuktu Pro 7.0.1 Fixes Tab Problem

Send Article to a Friend

Timbuktu Pro 7.0.1 Fixes Tab Problem -- Netopia last week released Timbuktu Pro 7.0.1, which includes a short list of minor fixes and one big one. If a user of version 7.0 hit the Tab key while in a remote control session that wasn't sized to full screen, the buttons along the side of the Timbuktu menu would become selected. Restoring the capability to type required switching in and out of full-screen mode.

The problem with the Tab key wasn't precisely Netopia's. The accessibility and customization controls in Mac OS X 10.3 Panther include one tucked away in the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane; the Turn On Full Keyboard Access option, in the Keyboard Shortcuts tab, was the culprit. The 7.0.1 update resolves the conflict by ignoring this setting within the program. Timbuktu Pro 7.0.1 is a free 4.6 MB download (a version 7.0 serial number and activation code is required to download the installer). [GF]
