Description Peter Mao 2018-05-01 15:36:32 UTC
Under macOS 10.13.4, the "delay-until-repeat" for the keyboard is about 1.5 seconds, comparable to the "Long" setting on the System Preferences>>Keyboard>Delay Until Repeat slider.

Moving the slider to "Short" speeds up the delay for everything else, but XQuartz doesn't seem to getting the message.

I don't recall this being an issue with the previous version of macOS (10.12.x)
Comment 1 Peter Mao 2018-05-03 17:21:08 UTC
It looks like changes in the "Delay Until Repeat" slider do not take effect until restarting XQuartz.   I noticed that after rebooting the machine (for a different reason), the delay matched that of the rest of the system.
