YES! Thank you. Sometimes even comments that are two years old are still very, very appreciated.
Power cycling the keyboard after making changes worked for me. I am using a Logitech diNovo Edge keyboard. Thanks for the tip @rampyre.
This thread excited me as it might provide a solution. However, I'm running Yosemite and my external keyboard loses the keyboard modifier settings whenever I unplug it from the USB port (doesn't matter if I'm connected through a hub or not).
Anybody have any more ideas?
