As discussed elsewhere (but the thread's not accepting new posts), the F11 and F12 keys don't seem to work with Leopard. It appears Leopard is keeping these keys to itself. Problem: running Visual Studio in a VM. F5 and all it's siblings are working. F10 is fine. However, F11 and F12 don't work (F11 is used a lot). Nor do they work in any other application, e.g. IE. These function keys are NOT mapped to Desktop or Dashboard (sys pref > kbd > kbd). When these settings are on, desktop and dashboard show. When off, they aren't passed to Parallels. Build info: Parallels 5584, Leopard 10.5.1. Is this a bug in Parallels or Leopard? Is there another thread discussing this?
