    Got the new wireless keyboard with the fn key at the far left corner.

    Is it possible to use this in for example quicksilver to do shortcuts like fn+h (and not just the f# keys)

    Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't appear to be an option. When adding a shortcut, it doesn't recognize the fn+h, like it would the command+h, option+h, control+h, etc.

    Made some further investigation and it seems the fn button is indeed made on the hardware level. It changes the other f buttons to other ones.

    Too bad I had an idea to fix myself a numpad.
