I am switching from a 2018 MBP i7 with a touch bar to a 2020 MBP M1. The older machine is still running macOS Catalina (v10.15.7) whereas the newer one came with macOS Big Sur preinstalled (v11.4). One thing I cannot figure out is how to force the M1 to show the function keys immediately upon pressing the 🌐 fn key. Check out the different Keyboard system preferences:
This delay is big enough for me to miss the 🌐 fncontrolF2 or 🌐 fncontrolF3 shortcuts that focus on the Menu Bar and Dock, respectively. While I realize that I have the option to show nothing but the function keys on the touch bar, I still find the touch bar useful enough to leave it as is. (I've set it up to change to function keys in certain apps like iTerm.)
Does anybody know of a script or a workaround how to bring back the macOS Catalina behavior?
