Hi all. New mac user here -- I'm looking to reassign my caps lock key to the escape key. Is there a good way to do this? (The Mac built-in options don't list the escape key as an option).

QUOTE Thanks

If you were able to you would lose the esc-option-coomand, which is the forced quit option. You would need to move the esc function to something else also.
