  2. Ability to import and use RDC Manager .rdg files

    With Windows version of RDC Man, you can import and/or save an .rdg config file. It would be nice if OSX app could use that .rdg file as well. Nice to have the same file supported in Windows and OSX!

  3. Sync connections to OneDrive

    When using multiple Macs, syncing all connections would be beneficial. .rdp files could be synced to a folder on OneDrive, or saved as a single xml file. Much like OneNote does.

  5. Ability to change/customise keybindings

    Like other RDP apps, you should be able to customise the key bindings. For example the backslash key is mapped to completely the wrong key on my mac keyboard, and it's very unintuitive.

  6. Export or sync your list with another computer

    Ability to sync the list of remote connections to another computer, via sync (dropbox style) or via export. With export you would export the list or some portion of the list, be asked for a password (to protect the export file), Then, using the password, import the list into another copy of Remote DeskTop.

  7. Allow right-click to be sent via control-shift-click

    Please allow right-clicks to be sent to the remote Windows session by pressing control and shift whilst (single) clicking. CoRD allows for this and it is very useful.

  8. Set default connection

    I'd like to be able to set one of the remote connections as default.
    Then after launching the RDP client I'd like to chose only "Start" to initiate that default connection - e.g. not having to select it first.
    Also pressing Enter just after launching the RDP client could to the same.

  12. Kerberos protocol Authentication

    Hi,

    Thanks for develop a best app for the community.
    So, you would develop authentication using the kerberos protocol?
    In environments where does not use the NTLM protocol, do not is possible to use the app.

    Today, the NTLMv2 protocol is weak and in my work we disabled this one.
    But we have a farm of server that run Microsoft VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) with a lot of apps and desktops.

    My users use Mac OSx Sierra, and Microsoft Remote Desktop For Mac to connect (Remote Resources feature) now without NTLM in domain they can't connect anymore.

    Thanks a lot.

  14. Have options to swap the command and alt keys and enable Fn lock

    Currently I'm using two different apps, one to swap command and alt so that in Windows I have Ctrl, Win, and Alt in order, then another app to enable Fn lock so I don't have to hold Fn key when using Alt+F4.

  15. Support for 3rd party SSO (bypass pre-auth "enablecredsspsupport:i:0" ).

    V10 beta and retail builds fail RDC connection to RDS. Server = S2012 R2. Using SSO provider pGina - fork.
    V8 works to connect, but looks like it's planed to be deprecated soon.
    RDC V10 for mac appears force pre-auth with no way to work around it.
    With Windows10 RDC we pass in "enablecredsspsupport:i:0" to bypass pre-auth and users are presented with the Desktop login screen and then can select the SSO provider UI login option.

  19. Focus existing session

    Most of the time a session is opened as a full screen desktop. There is no indication that I have an open session unless I open the Mission Control (or swipe between desktops), so sometimes I forget that I have opened a session and opens it again by double clicking it in the main application window.

    The stupid behaviour is that this program opens a new session in another desktop. Then the existing session gets disconnected, and then a few seconds later the new session gets disconnected because the old session reconnects thinking the connection was dropped by some network…

  20. default URL redirection to the host

    If an URL is sent to the system, it will look for the default app to open this URL. Like Firefox to open an internet page, or Outlook to open as a mailclient for a mailto: link.
    It should be possible to select RDP as default browser or mailclient.
    This would result in sending these URL's to the host. The host will open these URL's with it's default browser or mailclient.
    Specially with RemoteApps this would be a golden feature.
    You use the RemoteApp in conjunction with your local mailclient and browser.
