hi, can somebody help me to figure my :apple: numb keyboard to work with shortcuts of productivity softwares (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, FCE). I┤ve tried to disable all the shortcuts of Apple in the keyboard shortcuts preferences but still the keyboard doesnt perform the actions those softwares say when you press some shortcut (ex: I pressed shift+f5 to access the Fill function in photoshop and instead the computer did a slow-motion exposÚ action :mad:.
Any help much appreciated :D

You're lucky.

Some people pay good money for slow-motion exposÚ action.

You get it for free.

Which Apple keyboard is this?

Do you have the aluminum chiclet model? With little icons in the function key row and a "fn" key above the arrow keys (above Delete)?

Go to system prefereces > Keyboard (not Keyboard Shortcuts) and look for the "Use all F1, F2 etc keys as standard function keys"
