Re: Pressing C-X on mac

Dear Jai,

do you actually use capslock in the original way in some applications? - There 
might be a convenient way to map capslock for selected applications if you use 
tools like "Keyboard Maestro" (commercial). It is probably not possible to do 
within Emacs: if you press C-h k CAPSLOCK you do not get a key mapping 
(provided capslock is not mapped to some other modifier key) and - I think - 
this would be required for a mapping within Emacs (I might be wrong).

Warm regards,
 Stefan
