Shortcut for the right ALT key?


I am a left handed user, how can I map the right ALT key instead of the left ALT key to manipulate the view?

I don't think you can in Silo, but there are programs that will allow you to remap your keyboard. Something like this maybe.
Some basic silo tutorials

Yeah, when using low-level input systems (typically used in games) you can differentiate between left and right alt, and so forth. But using the regular OS events, which is what Qt uses under the hood, Silo doesn't have access to that granular of information.

We just ran across an issue where the alt key shortcuts on Mac OS X were not working correctly because OS X was reinterpreting the keypress to be what the option key alternate characters were, instead of the raw keyboard characters. Using higher-level OS features can be nice, but sometimes they have some disadvantages...

The Silo on OS X alt key bug is fixed, and we hope to get a new build out soon for anyone affected. But right vs left alt probably won't be able to be changed, so as Cinnsealach says, a key remapper might be your best bet.
