Hello

I am trying to create some shortcuts for sending keystrokes. Currently I have to press fn+f2 to rename a file and I would like to assign some single key on keyboard to do this. There are few others as well.

I have tried creating shorcut for the same but it doesnt work. Seems like I am doing something wrong. Please confirm what would be the correct way to assign shortcuts to keystrokes. Thanks.

Fn keys on notebooks are not standard and are difficult to code.
You may try

Code: Select all

{SC163 Down}{F2}{SC163 Up}
Examples of sending keystrokes:

Code: Select all

{Ctrl Down}{PgUp}{Ctrl Up}
{f1}
^+X  
The last example requires modifiers to be enabled in Preferences/Text Expander.

Is there any way I can find out the exact key code of My function key and other keys through some way?
