    I want to be able to access the function keys for word processing commands. I want to use one key command, not two. I am presently using a Macally keyboard that is several years old. (I like the feel for typing.) System preferences allow for one key commands, but do not work with this keyboard. Would a newer keyboard work? E.g., the Matias OS X Keyboard? or the Macally iKeyS?

    Thanks.

    Anyone? Use function keys (1 key) for copy/cut/paste, etc.

    Perhaps my subject line doesn't do it. I want to use function keys (only 1 key) for copy (F1), cut (F2, paste (F3), bold (F4), etc. I used to be able to do that with Word and my G4 and Tiger (10.4).

    Thanks.

    Found a solution (so far)

    :) A freeware program called FunctionFlip that works with the Function Keys (lets you remap them) with a variety of keyboards and accomplishes (so far) what I was after. If anyone is interested, the link is below.
