Does it work with laptop Function keys?
Authored by: sTvN on Oct 25, '03 12:13:05AM

This issue is related to the Microsoft IntelliPoint software, but I'm just discovering this now. I can't assign (for example) F9 as the keystroke for one of my extra intellimouse explorer buttons. I'm on a Powerbook, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. It still doesn't work when I hold down the "fn" key either, and yes, I have changed the keystrokes of expose so it's not interfering. Any thoughts anyone?

Not sure if this will help you but....

When assigning F9 for the mouse go into expose' and disable F9 first. Then set your mouse software to be F9 on a button , then go back and set expose' to F9. Otherwise you cant set your mouse because when you hit f9 it runs expose before it can learn the keystroke.
