[Mac] Function keys do not work

F11 does not bring up the play panel


Musescore 2.0 beta 2
Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2
I have not customized any keys, next to the play panel option, it displays the shortcut F11
And yes, I am pressing Fn while pressing F11.

Actually, this has been bothering me too. Thomas and Jojo-Schmitz guessed right: On a modern Mac keyboard, all the function keys except F5 and F6 are permanently assigned to specific system-wide actions (a picture of the keys, which have little icons showing their behavior: http://images.techhive.com/images/article/2012/10/keyboardcaption-10001… ), so they don't work to do what MuseScore wants them to do. You can indeed set a different keyboard shortcut for those things in Preferences > Shortcuts by double-clicking on a given command and entering what you'd like instead (which is ultimately what I've had to do for that thing with the supposed Ins key: http://musescore.org/en/node/36106#comment-188706 ), but it would be better if out of the box those actions were assigned to shortcuts that worked.
