Event Timeline

That age-old conflict over key-presses between the application and the window-manager and the operating system!

You might check in Preferences -> Keymap ->Window for starters. There is some F* stuff in there.

this where I originally set the function keys, but function keys are no longer shown on the screen shots attached...

any progress on this?
