I use a program that has a critical use of a couple of F-Key's. But in general use of the computer I use Apples version of the F-Keys. So I have a script to toggle between them. Works great. Except I would like to be able to assign one of the completly unused F-Keys in both states to run this script. Any ideas how I might do that? Cheers,.

    Create an Automator Service that receives no input.

    Add an Applescript action and modify it for your Applescript.

    Save it and assign a shortcut in the Keyboard System Preferences.

    You could put the applescript into a workflow in automator and save it as a service. Then you could assign the function key to it with a keyboard shortcut in system preferences > keyboard > keyboard shortcuts. I use Quickeys for this sort of thing.
