The Smoke application uses many keyboard shortcuts that are also used by Mac OS X.
As a general guideline, make sure your operating system does not use any single-key shortcuts (such as F1, F2, etc.) or shortcuts that include the CTRL and OPTION key modifiers, as these could overlap with Smoke hotkey combinations.
It is recommended to include the COMMAND key when defining OS-level shortcuts, as Smoke does not use this key.
Update your keyboard preferences as suggested below. These changes are optional but will minimize keyboard shortcut conflicts.
NoteThe keyboard preferences are set per Mac OS X user account. Make sure you apply them to all the Mac OS X user accounts you plan to use with Smoke.
To edit OS keyboard shortcuts:
- Open the System Preferences application.
- Click Keyboard.
- In the Keyboard tab, enable Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.
NoteThis option is available only if you are using an Apple keyboard.
- Click the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
- Select each section in the left panel, and then disable all its keyboard shortcuts, or change the shortcuts to include the COMMAND key.
