I have a gesture for Exposé so I need another button (the F3) to do the same. I'd love to replace F3 to show/hide the MacBartender app.

Here's where I assign a keyboard shortcut to MacBartender

Would it be possible to reassign this key for such a use? I have KeyRemap4MacBook installed but it does not allow for changing individual keys (I either change all my function keys or none at all).


FunctionFlip allows you to change the function keys individually.

  • I'm glad it worked. If you click the check button under the voting options, you'll "accept" my answer as correct. (If I remember correctly, you'll get a few reputation from doing it, too.) – Cajunluke Aug 2 '12 at 21:24
  • Not to worry, I am a SO user myself. I couldn't do it because it was too soon and I was planning to come back anyway. ;) – Maiasaura Aug 2 '12 at 21:34
  • Is it normal for the 'Flipped Keys' pane to not be populated? Mine says "No Special Function Keys" I am not sure how to use this program as the instructions show that list being populated in the first place. – Kalamalka Kid Mar 8 at 0:41

KeyRemap4MacBook does allow changing individual media keys.

Save something like this as private.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <name>Change Expose to F19</name>
    <autogen>--KeyToKey-- KeyCode::EXPOSE_ALL, KeyCode::F19</autogen>

Press the ReloadXML button and enable the remapping in the first tab.
