Function keys to run macros

Posted By Post

I cannot get function keys to activate macros any more.
I have done tools - keyboard - add, then get a message to select the key strokes. When the message box is closed all the options are greyed out & I cannot activate any function keys. Any ideas please

Three questions:

1 This Computer Tab or Workspace Tab?
2 What happens if you want to add F10?
3 Which line is activated (blue) when the "Enter Keystroke" has disappeard?

Thanks, I have achieved what I was trying to do. When I tried F10 I got message 'reserved for use by system' & I tried another keystroke while the message box was still open, which then worked. Previously I was exiting the message box then trying to select my keystrokes. It doesnt seem to make any difference which tab I am in, please can you explain the difference to me.

If you use one instance of Cardbox there is no difference.

If you want to use more than one instance of Cardbox then is it possible to give a name to every instance by the workspace possibilities.
Every workspace can contain different keystrokes, macros, special menu items etc etc.

See in HELP for the properties of a workspace and how to use this.
Search HELP index keyword WORKSPACES.
