TeXmacs not recognizing Meta Key on Windows 10 keyboard

From what I understand the Meta key is supposed to be the Windows key on a Windows computer.
I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong, but TexMacs is not recognizing the Meta key.

I’ve tried changing the edit->preferences keyboard options to no avail.
I would like to right align some line items in an equation using the keyboard shortcuts.

Would anyone know what to do?


Please try the esc key (on Windows).

thank you, it worked.

For this issue, can we change emacs:meta from meta to altcmd?

Hi pireddag, I have the same question and find your answer.

My intended solution is to map WIN key to META key, is it possible by adding one line in somewhere like ~/.TeXmacs/progs/my-init-texmacs.scm? And what is the correct code?


Sorry, I don’t know how to do that off the top of my head. Let us see if someone knows immediately. If not, we may try to figure it out.

Try Mogan v1.0 beta:

Here is the pull request I made to change the default meta key:

Emacs is also using Alt as meta key on Windows.

And Mogan can be used along with GNU TeXmacs. It is a GNU TeXmacs distribution.

According to your modification given in https://github.com/XmacsLabs/mogan/commit/e4fb307f4941696c2d6ea1d4979ba6d1e742d44d, I’ve successfully remapped meta key to alt key.
