I am pretty sure it is hard coded into the software because all programs that I know
of use F1 for help. All MS Office programs do as well as ACAD and I am sure others.
There are plenty of keys or key combinations to choose from to use instead of trying to use F1.
Thanks for your help.
Suggestion to SW Team:
I doubt many people use Help often enough to justify hard-coding the F1 shortcut, plus Help is available online and through the menus. The F1 key is very accessible and I am quite sure many people would start using it should it be free. At the very least, it would be nice to be able to choose what the F1 key does, just like all the other shortcuts.
Still, great product, thanks for everything.
