Mac question

Does anyone know how to disable (or override) the OSX keyboard commands? My problem is the OSX commands always take preference over the application commands - I'd like to reverse that if possible... applications commands override system commands. (for example F8 stops the iTunes play - I want that command to work with Quark or Illustrator instead)

Anyone know if there is a way to do this? I know some commands are accessible thru the system preferences - but what about the F keys? Can those be manipulated somehow?

Any help would be appreciated.

Go to Preferences, "Keyboard" and click on "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys ..."

You can assign your own shortcuts too by Application at "Keyboard Shortcuts" / Application Shortcut and "+" add what you want.

Thanks qwerty - I knew there was a way to do it. It was staring me right in the face and I didn't see it!
