    Hi there!

    Is there any way to remap the Caps Lock key to toggle the fn key?
    (Or maybe even a keyboard shortcut?)

    This has been bothering me for a while now since I use a few programs that heavily rely on the F keys. I want an easy way to toggle the fn key because I really enjoy the media keys that Apple defaults these as. I already know there are settings in the preferences that allow you to switch them, but going through all of that is somewhat of a hassle.

    Are there any expert programmers/hackers that can help me out here? I know there are others that would like this functionality as well.

    I've been trying to figure this out too. Best I can tell, it's not possible.

    I've gotten used to toggling FN with BetterTouchTool using my own key combination to activate an AppleScript that does all the work. I would still like to remap Caps Lock to something actually useful though.
