[prMac.com] Fiumicino, Italy - Briksoftware today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of FNable 1.0, the Caps Lock for your FN key. On a typical Mac the function keys have a special meaning. They are used to control the volume, the screen's brightness or iTunes. But some applications, games or especially Windows software running in VMWare Fusion or Parallels use the normal function keys. FNable allows you to easily use your function keys in the applications that you need them.
FNable runs in the background and can quickly change your special keys to function keys. The applications that use Function keys are remembered and every time you switch to such an application, the function keys will be available. In all other apps the special keys will be available. Of course you can still use the special keys while your function keys are active, just hold down the FN key when clicking the function keys.
While you can add FNable to your menu bar just as many other apps, you can also put FNable into your menu's corners, for extra speedy access. That saves some menu bar real estate and you can find FNable in any running app, that might otherwise hide the items in your menu bar.
Working or playing a game in fullscreen mode and want to use your function keys? Just hold your FN key for 3 seconds and FNable will switch your function keys! Your Mac will inform you about your current settings with its integrated Voice Synthesizer! You can also toggle your function keys by using a global hotkey. Or you put FNable into your dock and use it from there!
* Perfect system-integration: use FNable from your Screen corners, your menu bar, a hotkey, or from the Dock
* Remembers the applications where you want to use your Function Keys
* Hold the FN key for 3 seconds to toggle your Function Keys while playing games
* US English, French, German and Italian
