Power Mac G5 :: Function Key Use Above F16
I am new to this imac g5 and cannot seem to make function keys above f16 to work. I run a program that requires the use of function keys such as f3...f7...f11 etc: These function keys come into place as I am doing a remote link into another systems software that uses function keys to move between menus and screens. I did go into system preferences and unclicked on f3,f7 and f11 so they work properly rather than performing a mac function. Previously I ran a windows based machine and with the 12 functions keys on that keyboard I would get f24 by using shift f12.

Currently I have f12 unclicked in system preferences so it performs the required menu function rather than bringing up the "Dashboard" but if I shift f12 (presumably now f24) I get the dashboard rather than the f24 bringing up the required menu. how to deal with function keys above f16 as in the case of the f24 function I need?

OS X :: Swap Function Button For Command Key
This evening I joined the camp... I bought a MBP and LOVE it! So impressed, have been on it all evening and still have 3 hours battery remaining However, there is one thing REALLY bugging me. I've searched for over an hour and not got the answer I need... I want to swap the command and function buttons around... I am a web developer, and continuously use keyboard shortcuts such as copy and paste on my numerous devices. I want to be able to press function + c for copy, function + v for paste, function + t for new tab in safari etc. Basically, I want the function key to perform as the command key does!

Now, i've got as far as using keyboard "modifier keys" in preferences to switch around command and control - which is just ONE button off function :-) However, it doesn't let me switch the function of.. function

Hardware :: Messed Up Function Key Mappings
I managed to somehow screw up my function key mappings, and can't figure out how to get things back to "default".

I use the following function keys daily:
F1/F2: brightness
F3: expose
F10: mute
F11: vol down
F12: vol up

I somehow hit a key combination that threw everything out of wack. All of my functions have now shifted all over the place (ie: expose is no longer F3, it's now F9). I went into system preferences, and was able to re-map expose...but that's it. I can't figure out how to map the audio functions (mute and volume) and brightness control back to their original mappings.

I tried clicking on "Restore Defaults" within the Keyboard Shortcuts window...but it didn't work. Also, I now have an ugly black box around the item I've selected on my desktop. For example, if I click on my hard drive on the desktop...it'll put a big black box around it. If I click (or move my arrow key) on the next item...the black box is then moved there...indicating it's selected. How do I get rid of this ugly box?

Hardware :: New Wireless Apple Keyboard Function Key
My brother just got the new iMac but he wanted my wired keyboard with the num keys, so basically we switched. I gave him my extended wired keyboard and I took his wireless to use with my MBP 13in and LED CD. So here's the problem: All the function keys don't work properly. I went into System Preferences>Keyboard and I was able to reassign the brightness keys (F1 and F2), expose and dashboard (F3 and F4). The rest...is beyond me. If it helps, I got the 13 inch MBP the week it came out. I tired running new software updates but nothing seems to help. I also have Snow Leopard installed. edit: I also checked out Keyboard viewer and it keeps showing the extended keyboard layout

OS X :: Changing Alt / Option Key Performs Expose Function
I am new to MacRumors Forums and I have a problem with both my Alt/Option Key and the left side Command Key on my MacBook Pro. Basically, whenever pressed the Alt/Option Key performs the "Expose" function revealing all the open windows so that I cant ever actually use the Alt/Option key in various key commands with different programs. Also, the left side Command Key, whenever pressed, hides all my open windows to reveal the Desktop, but thankfully there is a right side Command Key to my keyboard that I can use. Now, Ive gone into the System Preferences and tried to alter the Keyboard short-cut commands as well as restore the defaults to no avail, I just cant seem to get it to revert back to normalcy - I need this key to work right so that I can do the necessary shortcuts in Logic Pro.

MacBook Pro :: Apple External Keyboard Function Key Missing?
I have the new aluminium external keyboard (UK english, wired, full size with numeric keypad) and I notice that it doesn't have a Fn modifier key.

I have configured OS X on my MBP to use F1, F2, etc as standard function keys, requiring me to hold down Fn + key on the MBP to adjust brightness, volume, etc.

But on the external keyboard, due to the lack of an Fn key, I cannot control brightness, volume, etc. Is there any key combination I should be using to get the same effect?

ITunes Mac :: Setting Back Key Shortcut Default Function?
I can be in any app, or have no apps running and when I use the keyboard shortcuts Command + = or Command + - then iTunes launches. I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.4 and I've searched the setting in iTunes and SysPrefs but can't find out why this happens. It's particularly annoying as that's a very common shortcut for me. It zooms an image in Photoshop or increases font sizes in browsers.

OS X :: Function Hot Key - Make Swap Instead Of Having To Open Up System Preferences
I know how in keyboard preferences to mark the check box that says "Use function keys as standard function keys," but my question is, is there a way to use a hot key to make this swap instead of having to open up system preferences, navigate to the proper pane and tab, and click the box? I have a couple programs where I absolutely need function keys to be function keys, but for general purpose use, I need the function keys to be the spiffy stuff printed on them.

Ideally I'd love for the system to look at what app was in the foreground (that is, has control of the menu bar) and recognize this app as needing access to function-function keys and make the swap for me, but I don't think this is possible at the moment, and having a hot key to change it would be the next best thing.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Email Address Requires Host Name In Address Field
I'm trying to setup mail on Lion Sever (7.3). The only way I can get it to accept incoming mail is to specify the whole FQDN of the server in the address.For example the domain name is example.com and I have a user set up called john. Sending mail to john@server.example.com works.

But sending mail to john@example.com (which is what I want) returns an error:
554 554 5.7.1 <john@example.com>: Relay access denied (state 13).

For internal DNS, I have:
example.com - primary zonemail.expample.com - alias server.example.comserver.example.com - 192.168.1.2 [URL] - alias server.example.comMX record [URL]

I see references here to problems in mail on 7.3 but not this specific problem.

OS X Tiger :: Function Key F13 - Suddenly Takes Screenshot And Puts .png Files On Desktop
For years I've only used Shift/F13 for an Action in Photoshop (CS2) -- rotate 90 degrees anticlockwise. Today, F13, with or without Shift, suddenly takes a screenshot and puts .png files on my desktop. I have all Keystrokes switched off in System Prefs, and I've now even trashed Grab (I use Snapz Pro X or Screenflick anyway). I've repaired the Preferences, run TechTool Pro 4 over my discs, and restarted. Nothing makes any difference: F13 still takes a screenshot. What could make my iMac suddenly decide to do this?! BTW, I use a Logitech S530 cordless keyboard and mouse. I've added no new software, and haven't changed anything. NOTHING is set to use F13 apart from Photoshop.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Remove An Email Address From Address Book
A friend has changed his email address. I have changed it in my address book.However when I compose a new mail and start to type the name of my friend, the OLD email address appears in a drop down list as much as the NEW address. How can I make it so that the OLD address wont show anymore? Sillylie enough the old address is listed first so I always end up sending mail to the wrong address.The old address is not in any part of my address book.Where is MAIL getting the address from and can I stop it showing the old address?

Through the years I've clicked this, over and over: "If you prefer not to receive commercial email from Apple, or if you've changed your email address, please click here." I'm trying to detect a pattern. I suspect that every time our family buys a new apple product we are hit with advertisements. I recently bought a new iPod Touch. I wonder if this is why the offer from apple to leave me alone fails, over and over.

OS X Leopard :: "FROM" Shows Email Address, Not Name, For A Few Address Book Entries?
What is strange is that for the people it happens to, Mail IS able to successfully cross-reference them to an address book entry by showing their real name (and photo if I have one), in the BODY of the message. In other words, Mail will always resolved email address into names in the body of mail messages (100% of the time if I have a matching address book entry), but will only show names rather than addresses in the list view maybe 85% of the time. Weird. Seems like mail should either know the sender and display a name instead of address, or not. My issue is that is knows them in the body but doesn't in the messages list (above the preview pane).

I can't figure out what about the address book card for these few people is any different from the others one which do the name matching perfectly every time.A small concern here, I know, but it is very annoying that I can't figure this out. I first noticed it back with Mail for Tiger.
