Capture One Pro runs on both Mac and Windows platforms. And in fact, a catalog created on one platform can be opened on the other. In this video, Derrick explains a few points of terminology so both Windows and Mac users will be comfortable watching these tutorials.
- [Instructor] One of the things that I absolutely love about Capture One Pro is that it works on both Mac and Windows platforms. So cool. Now, we did this particular training on a Mac, but I want to show you the mappings for Mac and Windows so that we're all speaking the same language, or at least all listening to the same language, while we're working on this. So, for example, on a Mac when I say option, and I hold down the option key, then that maps to Alt on a Windows machine. And that should work almost every time.
There's one instance I can think of where that doesn't work, and that is when I'm holding down the option key and launching Capture One Pro, that provides a dialog box with all the catalogs that I can choose from in that particular moment. That functionality, as far as I know, is Mac only, and that won't work on the Windows machine. Otherwise, option and Alt should be pretty much interchangeable. Now on a Mac when I say command, just like this, then we're talking Control on our Windows machines.
When I say delete, we're talking Backspace on a Windows machine. And when I say return, we are talking Enter over here, on our Windows keyboard. Excellent. Now, I have another tip for you. If you forget, and this is whether you're working on Mac or Windows, what a particular keyboard combination is, then there is salvation. Go up here, go to Capture One 10, and look for Edit Keyboard Shortcuts, right there.
I'm going to open that up. Here you get all the keyboard shortcuts that are existing. So, whether you're on a Mac or Windows machine, and Derrick says something, you go, man I can't remember or it feels like it's different on Windows, or something like that, go to Edit Keyboard Shortcuts, and look at this, you'll have them all. Isn't that nice? Now we're looking at the Mac versions right now, but this also works on Windows and you can see the Windows keyboard shortcuts.
And even in some instances, you can even assign keyboard shortcuts by creating a custom set. And I talk about that in my essential training. But right now if you need it as a reference, it's right here, Edit Keyboard Shortcuts, so if I mess up, or you forget, there's always a way to find the right answer.
