I totally misinterpreted the "F-keys" matter here.
This was due to my own personal dream: using my MacBook "fn" key as a modifier (other than Cmd, Alt, Shift and Ctrl).
I know I can remap it to another modifier (at least I know i can turn "fn" into "Ctrl" key with DoubleCommand)... but this is just not what I'm seeking.

Is there a way to build shortcuts to the likes of, say, "Fn+5"?
I'd kill for that (or shell some bucks, more realistically).
And yeah... I'm pinned to the free, excellent Spark when it comes to keyboard shortcut managers.

Simple, easy, straight forward. Great little program. I did not want to spend a lot of time setting up typing text shortcuts. With SimpleKeys I was done in no time. I had a problem with an upgrade but the developer responded in less than 24 hours with a fix.

For $20 I'd recommend that people also look at Keyboard Maestro. It's a commercial program for the same price with many more features.

As of version 2.5.1 this is less than half the price of Keyboard Maestro and more capable too.

Effortless and fun! Very intuitive setup. Easy to program and edit. Thanks for this great app.
Just remember if you have an Ibook to assign from F7 up as the others are already programmed by Apple.

Actually, if you check the 'Use the F1-F12 keys to control software features' box in the keyboard section of keyboard and mouse, you can use all the F keys.
To access the hardware controlls, just hold down funtion and hit the same F key you normally would.
