I just bought the Razer Blackwidow 2013 keyboard, and after installing drivers (Synapse 2.0) I run into a strange issue:
My function keys started to work very strange. They started to use their "shortcuts" (not sure how to properly name it) without the need to tap fn key + function key.
For example: F9 starts Macro recording instead of MissionControl. And now to achieve default behavior I need to press fn key with function keys.
Without drivers, function keys work fine (F9 for MissionControl etc). Also I can tap fn key + a function key to use a shortcut: turn sound on/off, stop/play music etc. But without drivers I can't use on the fly macro recording, which is why I decided to install Synapse.
If I turn on "Gaming Mode" everything works as expected. Functional keys behavior is default. And if I tap fn + function key shortcuts works fine.
My question is: is there a workaround to get default functionality without the need to use "Gaming Mode"? Because for now everything seems to work "inside out".
