Hello
I'm working with MemoQ and I think it's really user-friendly.
But I've a annoying problem: tags insertion.

They say that it can be done pressing F9, but it is useless. Maybe because MAC OS uses F keys for it's own prompts?

I tried to change the shortcut key in MemoQ but I couldn't do it.

Can you help me?

Thanks
Lucia

Should work fine Feb 1, 2016

Press fn + F9, and the shortcut should work as expected.

I use Bootcamp myself, but I assume keyboard functionality should be the same.

Go to system preferences -> keyboard and uncheck the option "use F1, F2 etc as standard function keys.
In order to use them again as function keys you can press fn and the corresponding key.

It works but... Feb 2, 2016

Your way works, but pressing F9 and Fn simultaneously is not very quick as thetwo keys are far. Maybe there is a way to change the F9 key?

Thanks
