Meaning – The term keyboard remapping, refers to the facility that allows users to change the key assignments on the keyboard that they are using for emulation.
Keyboard remapping lets you associate a sequence of keystrokes with a particular action, so that typing the sequence of keystrokes causes the action to occur. The sequence of keystrokes can be either a single key or a single key combined with Shift, Ctrl, or Alt. The action can be to display a character, to execute a hostfunction, to execute a custom function, or to execute a menucommand.
Example of usage – “To access the Keyboard window, either click the Remap button on the toolbar, click Edit > Preferences > Keyboard, or click Keyboard in the session properties. The numeric keys 0-9 and * and # can be remapped.”
