    I just got Apple wired keyboard with numpad which has row of function keys (f13-f19) that I'd like to use.
    Unfortunately most of the applications keep saying that these keys are being used by system even though when looking at preferences these keys are not being used.
    For example I want to use f13 as a global shortcut for new note in Evernote but it won't let me, global shortcut for new tweet in official Twitter client lets me use only f13 or f16 but not any other keys.

    Can you please help me with this? I'm on 10.7.4

    See my thread on a System-wide application, aText. :)

    My help you to either apply to a keystroke or just type as a direct substitution.
