    In OS X, is there a way to map a set of keys to a specific application?

    I need for the number-pad keys 1,2,3,4 & Enter to control one specific application regardless of which app is in focus (i.e., even when the specified app is in the background).

    Any ideas?

    If you have programming experience you can do this yourself through the Applescript Editor. If not I'd be more than happy to make a script for you that would allow you to assign certain applications to the hotkey of your choice. Just send me an email at, or IM me on AIM, ntg10.
