I constantly use the brightness, mission control, volume, and iTunes playback shortcuts on my keyboard's function row. However, a handful of apps I use make heavy use of F1, F2, etc. for keyboard shortcuts, and it's annoying having to use something like Fn+F7 all the time for something that was intended to be a single keystroke away.
I can think of a few ways to get around this problem:
- Manually reassign any and all keyboard shortcuts that make use of function keys to something else. Ugh.
- Enable the "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" option in System Preferences, and re-train myself to use Fn whenever I want to use the system shortcuts. Ugh.
- Find a way to enable this option only for certain applications.
Is this possible to do? Are there any third-party apps that can take care of this for me?
