FunctionFlip

FunctionFlip individually controls your MacBook or MacBook Pro's function keys, turning special keys back to regular F-keys, or vice-versa

I like the media keys on my MacBook keyboard - just not all of them. Fat-fingered that I am, I regularly skip tracks when I just want to pause. Disabling all of the keys just won't do, because I use the brightness and volume keys every day.

FunctionFlip individually controls your MacBook or MacBook Pro's function keys, turning special keys back to regular F-keys, or vice-versa. As of version 1.2, FunctionFlip is a preference pane. You'll find it in the "Other" category in System Preferences.

FunctionFlip has been updated to 2.0.2 which gives it full Snow Leopard support. I just submitted it to iUseThis so it should show up here in a few days.

Just a slight confusion:

FunctionFlip's prefpane says I'm using FunctionFlip 2.0. When clicking "Check for Update…", I get a message saying "Version <!-- Bd Referrers Script…" and I'm told to click on "Get Update" and then I'm taken to the developer's website (from which I've already downloaded the most recent version). Somehow it doesn't recognize the version I'm using. (I haven't used any previous versions prior to installation.) I'm using OSX 10.5.7 on a MacBook Pro mid 2009.

Otherwise, it works like a charm.

This is extremely useful. I disabled dashboard on my computer, and this let me remap its key to spaces.

1.3 now works with modifier keys

sounds like this would be especially useful when playing mmorpg's that utilize a lot of hot keys (F1-F12).

VERY nice, version 1.2 makes it a PreferencePane, the only thing I was about to ask for when using version 1.1.
Thank you so much for making this!
