I'm using Jump Desktop 6.0.3 on OS X 10.9.5 (Macbook Pro keyboard) to connect to Windows 7 machine over RDP. I'm very fond of JD's "Key conversions" feature which lets me set up mappings to use the arrow-related Document shortcuts (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201236, e.g. Option+(Shift)+Left to CTRL+(Shift)+Left) to use the familiar shortcuts in Windows.
I tried updating to JD 7 (most recently to version 7.0.3) and found the feature broken in various ways (I've reverted to 6.0.3 since then so I can't write the specific steps to reproduce ATM - I recall Alt+Left acting like Alt to focus the menu bar in Windows then moving three times to the left in the menu).
In addition it seems that version 7 stores the mappings in a way incompatible with version 6, requiring me to set up the conversions from scratch when downgrading.
I saw "Keyboard mapping and layout fixes (particularly for RDP connections)" in the release notes for 7.0.4 and wanted to try it.
How can I backup the JD settings before upgrading to make downgrading easier?
Does the problem I'm describing look like a known issue?
What additional information can I collect if the problem persists in 7.0.4?
