Hi All. I am bedeviled by what appears to be a bug. I started to try to explain this below as there is a checkmark in MAC OSX that either gets F Keys to work the IMAGES that are on these keys or to Activate these while pressing Fn. Obviously one can have this on or off and i am now trying to map these with this option OFF. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.47.00 PM.png Anyway, I am NOW finding that with this option OFF, that I can try to map the F8 key to F8 and the F9 to F9 by quickly and simultaneously hitting Fn and F8 (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't so you just have to keep at it) adn then it is relatively straightforward to simply hit F8 or F9 when working in the "To" section. THE PROBLEM NOW IS THAT I CAN'T GET THE F6, F9, F10, F11 or F12 keys to enter into the "From" section. No matter what I do these all activate some Mac functionality and WON'T let me put these F keys into the From section. This appears to be a bug or can someone otherwise help me with which setting I need to change to make this process easier?? THANKS I am using a CAD program where the F8 key is typically used to turn on "orthographic mode" in order to restrict your cursor to "orthogonal" instead of "free" movement. I am not able to get this to work in this Windows 7 software. I am aware of the PREFERENCES section in Paralells for KEYBOARD where it has a checkmark to "Enable Mac OSC System Shortcuts in Parallels" and then /above/ this is a section for "Parallels Desktop Shortcuts" (this is greyed out for some reason that I don't understand) and there is a section for "Virtual Machine Shortcuts" but there is nothing in either of these second two that has to do with the F8 KEY. If I TRY and ADD a shortcut for the F8 Key by clicking on the PLUS SYMBOL ("+") it does not appear to want to add simply the F8 Key because if I click in the "From" section and hit F8 nothing happens. If I hold down the FN (Function Key) and hit the F8 Key when in this dialog it comes up as Fn + F8 is "8", CTRL + 8 is nothing, Option + F8 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.40.04 PM.png http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.41.14 PM.png http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.41.25 PM.png http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.41.37 PM.png Then in the MAC SYSTEM PREFERENCES there is a Keyboard section with a checkbox that says "Use all F1, F2 etc keys as standard function keys (when this option is selected, press the Fn key to use the special features printed on each key." I have this option CHECKED so that http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/Screen shot 2012-04-26 at 10.47.00 PM.png - - and all of this is extremely confusing.
