I've tried many things to assign a 1-key shortcut to the "Step Into" debugging feature in the VBA Editor for Mac Excel (Mac VBE). I asked a question about stack overflow, but in my experience, Macintosh-related issues are often not resolved there, as in this case.
Below are screenshots showing a try to reassign
F8 Key (used in Windows for this). Although it looks like it will work, pressing the key during debugging will not work (although the default is awkward
shift-cmd-i still works). There are other "solutions" to this kind of problem that do not work for me. Namely with the FN key in combination with
F8 or check the "Use
F2,etc. I also tried using a utility called FunctionFlip, but like others, it did not work for me.
I am not bound
F8and would like others like
F7 which are already used in the Mac VBE. I say that because, after a comment by Emilio
F8 is something special on the Mac. But when I tried it
F5For example, it failed too.
I'm using a non-touch MacBook pro (which replaces the function keys to my knowledge) and use both a notebook keyboard and an external (Mac) keyboard I bought in 2019.
