Change volume and brightness in quarter-step increments
Authored by: Lri on Mar 28, '13 03:07:32PM

You can also use KeyRemap4MacBook to remap F11 and F12 to ⌥⇧F11 and ⌥⇧F12:

<autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_DOWN, ModifierFlag::NONE, KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_DOWN, ModifierFlag::OPTION_L | ModifierFlag::SHIFT_L</autogen>
<autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_UP, ModifierFlag::NONE, KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_UP, ModifierFlag::OPTION_L | ModifierFlag::SHIFT_L</autogen>

Change volume and brightness in quarter-step increments

Thanks for that! I might need that in the future.

I was thinking, however, that they could have avoided the need for using an extra app for this by doing something that seems very natural.

As soon as I read the tip, I tried it with the brightness as I often change that during the day but am never very satisfied. I set it up at 4 1/2 using the hint and then let go of the option and shift keys. Afterwards, I thought it would be natural that changing it using just the brightness keys would change it by 1 step like usual so I'd be at 5 1/2 but seems like it first rounds off and then changes it step by step. This is confusing and very unnatural. If they had not done that, I might have just used the default one with using option and shift only when changing the fine tuning.
