Default External MFD Tweaks?

I'm currently exploring the feasability of building a simpit for orbiter. I plan using some 16:9 touch screen displays as extended displays to load a set of MFDs using external MFD module. I am running to an issue that I think can be solved but not on my end. When I touch the various MFD keys and then I try to control the ship in some way with keyboard keys such as forward thrust or kill rotate, I get no response until I click back in the main screen. It appears that you can only control the ship when the primary screen is active. This can be a problem if you are trying to build a multi monitor sim and would like to use external MFD to control the MFD displays and fly the ship. Any way to deal with this?

Thanks in advance!

I wonder if Remote vessel control would work.

Thanks so much Kamaz, thank goodness there are some workarounds although I am curious if there may be some improvements for the new orbiter beta so we don't have to hack using things like autohotkey and such.

That's not a workaround that's a fixed DLL

I should put this on Orbithangar...
