I assigned Function keys 1-24.

macOS 10.13.3

Only Function keys 1-15 work. The rest are not recognized. All on layer 1 as follows (physical key=function key assignment): 1=1 2=2 3=3 4=4 5=5 6=6 7=7 8=8 9=9 0=10 -=11 ==12 `=13 \=14 Any (top right key)=15 w=16 t=17 l=18 c=19 m=20 del=21 PgUp=22 PgDn=23 Esc=24

I am trying to use Quicksilver to assign triggers to Functions 16-24, but they aren't recognizing.

I tried using Sys Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts as well. It doesn't recognize Functions16-24 either.

Are Functions 16-24 not supported in macOS or do I need to do something different to get it to work?

Interesting, I'll look into this to see if there is another issue. Make sure you're not running karabiner or USB overdrive as these mess with the USB drivers quite badly.

Hi @ioakobu, did you ever solve your issue with the higher-numbered function keys?
