Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad, PocketCloud, and RDP: initial thoughts

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad, PocketCloud, and RDP: initial thoughts

Posting my experience with this combo. It may help others in the same boat.

I'm using a Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard (model 920-003241) with my iPad 2 and PocketCloud Pro. I'm finding my way around some of the limitations of this pair when using RDP to my Windows 8 desktop.

Since the Bluetooth keyboard overrides the app's on-screen keyboard, I struggled with the easiest way to send the Alt and Windows keys.

I found that if I tap with two fingers to activate the on-screen mouse pointer UI and tap the key combo button, the keyboard with CTRL key combos appears. It takes up half the screen, but if you tap the key combo button (rectangle + rectangle), it hides all but the top row of the window which contains the Alt and Windows keys. This stays at the bottom of the screen until I close it.

This works for me, but I would rather have key-combos I could use on the Bluetooth keyboard instead.

I am pleased that the Caps Lock, Shift, and arrows keys work pretty well! I do have to press left or right once to go up or down occasionally. Shift-arrow to highlight text also works, but I've not yet found a combo for Undo or Redo. Copy/Paste is also interesting; I find the Edit menu is the only consistent way to get expected results.
