Quite good, one fatal flaw

Overall this is an excellent app and I appreciate being able to connect easily to my Windows desktop machine acting as a headless server. However, there's one critical flaw: there appears to be no size limit on the clipboard. On my Windows machine I moved 120 GB worth of files via copy/paste. The next morning I couldn't figure out why my iMac was down to only 12 GB of storage - I dug into the depths of the cache files and found that the remote desktop software had pulled over the 120 GB of files. Come on developers, that is insane - there should be a default limit on the size of files that are copied over from the clipboard. Maybe 1 GB by default and there's an option for an override. But 120 GB? That's insane. Please fix that.

Consistent updates and reliable

I use this app constantly to remote into Windows servers from a Mac. It’s pretty great!
Only suggestion I have is it would be awesome if it were possible to remap keys and create custom ones myself to make editing text much more fluid. For example, command+c becomes control+c. Option+left/right arrow becomes control+left/right arrow to make cusor skipping over words. Option+shift+right/left arrow becomes control+shift+left/right arrow. There are many of these that would make it possible for me to retire Parallels/vmware on my Mac. Command+R should be F5. Also, I think having the command key operate as a Windows key just gets in the way. It would be nice to disable that. Thanks for the consideration. Great app!
Edit: It is fantastic to hear some of this is solved in a future release. Having a few shortcuts is a step in the right direction. Please consider opening this up to user-customization in the future release as well.

Developer Response,

Thank you for your sharing your feedback with us. We have started to work on a new experience which partially answers your feature requests. You can test drive it through the RD Insider program. You can reach it from the help menu from our app.

Turn off All Monitors by default and add quick connect

There needs to be an option to set a default settings for new session entires. One thing I NEVER use is multiple monitors for RDP. About half the time I forget to uncheck that box when I create a new entry and have to close the session, and go back in and change it. Can’t there just be a place in properties to set sane defaults per the user so that this problem goes away?
Also, there needs to be a quick connect option. I work with thousands of Windows VMs, and rarely have to connect to the same one more than a couple of times a year. I don’t want to have to create a new entry a dozen times a day for every session I access. I just want a quick connect box where I can pop in a name and go.
This is the one application, that I wish behaved more like the Windows version.
