Overriding Aperture function key

Overriding Aperture function key

Postby virtual Bob » Thu Apr 28, 2016 9:57 pm

In Aperture (photo workflow for Mac) there is an annoying shortcut that uses the universal Play function >|| (F8) for iTunes. So when I'm in Aperture and I want to turn the music on or off via F8, Aperture starts a slideshow. This happens in no other app that I'm aware of and is a known annoyance. Is there any way I can get QuicKeys to override this so that F8 turns on iTunes play?

I don't have that program but you should be able to do it with this simple shortcut:

1) Scope: Aperture
2) hot key: F8
3) shortcut step: Create>System>System Keys>Play/Pause
