Topic: User defined buttons in Digital Performer/ Solved

I am trying to set the user definable buttons on the AlphaTrack in DP, but i can't change the mac OS commands assigned to the key commands that these buttons generate. I have tried in mac/ sys prefs/ keyboard and in DP's command window, but the buttons will not be recognized. Option F1 & F2 call up screen resolution and option F3 & F4 call up expose and spaces. Anyone managed to assign these buttons? Thanks, jarvis

Hi motuscott,

Have you tried typing in "Opt + F1" instead of pressing the option button and the F1 button?

Literally days of head scratching… To use the user assignable buttons on AlphaTrack in DP:  in Sys Prefs/ keyboard/ keyboard, you must have the "Use all F1, F2…." box checked. Then you can enter the commands not with the buttons on AlphaTrack, but with the corresponding keys on your keyboard.
