FunctionFlip overview

FunctionFlip turned out to be my solution. I like the media keys on my MacBook keyboard - just not all of them. Fat-fingered that I am, I regularly skip tracks when I just want to pause. Disabling all of the keys just won't do, because I use the brightness and volume keys every day.

FunctionFlip individually controls your Macbook or Macbook Pro's function keys, turning special keys back to regular F-keys, or vice-versa.

FunctionFlip requires that "Enable access for assistive devices" be checked on the Universal Access pane in System Preferences.

Last time I tried this in Monterery, it didn’t work. It’s open source but doesn’t seem like anyone has taken the reigns.

FYI it seems me that FunctionFlip is in conflict with installed Karabiner

I don’t want to use the media playback keys to control iTunes – accidentally fast forwarding through a song is a nuisance. But I find some of a Mac’s F key functions useful, FunctionFlip does its job perfectly, allowing me to change just those keys.

Works fine in OS X 10.10 Yosemite. If it complains about privacy settings, uninstall and reinstall shall fix the problem.
