Reproduces without third-party stuff.
Steps to reproduce
- Try to bind
F1 to any command as a hotkey
- Want to bind function keys directly, without modifiers
F1 doesn’t bind to a command
F1 works flawlessly
- Operating system: Windows 10
- Obsidian version: v0.12.19
we don’t support this yet. There’s an open feature request.
Do you know of any other apps that support this? I’ve personally never seen it. Usually plain function keys are reserved, and can’t be used as hotkeys.
VSCode is perfectly fine with straight function keys, for example.
There’s a way to sneak it into Obsidian as well, modifying
hotkeys.json and leaving
modifier array empty - but having it work from UI as well would be neat.
Emacs and Vim can too be configured to use function keys without modifiers.
